2 debuts 2 goals and both were crackers! Buttner played amazingly well, he will put up a good challenge for Evra's spot.

Buttner's question marks are defensive, much like Rafael I guess.

He was always an aggressive attacking wing back style of player. Maybe thats what Ferguson wanted, knowing he could probably refine his defensive attributes and end up with a more complete player than Baines in a few years who was the first choice I believe.

I think he'll provide good competition to Evra which was the most important thing because i felt Evra had got to comfortable. I still believe Evra will be first choice for now but he watched yesterday and knows he has to up his game...

Chicharo can't miss pk's like that, he's already struggling to get time in.

Easy match for United in the end and on top of that they got their first clean sheet of the season. Maybe this will give confidence to the defense to do better than the first games, at least until the injured ones get back.

Wellbeck's diving is getting ridiculous

Theres always somebody diving for united. It was Young doing it a lot last year. Even so the penalty was saved so it was justice after all.

quite bad in the first half, didnt close down at all. we're playing at home and we let wigan have the ball for too long.

second half we were doing the total opposite, closing down, pressing high up the pitch and winning the ball back quicker. buttner couldnt have asked for a better debut, an assist + a goal, same for powell great goal.

Expected united to beat Wigan easily and they didn't disappoint really without Moses Wigan look like a headless chicken now.
