United thump Wolves to go four points clear

Wolverhampton, England (Betting Express) - Manchester United extended its lead atop the English Premier League with ease on Saturday as the Red Devils cruised to a 5-0 thrashing of 10-man Wolverhampton at Molineux.

The reigning English champions now lead their bitter rivals, Manchester City, by four points in the race for the Premier League title, although the Citizens have a game in hand and can close the gap back down to just one point with a win over Chelsea on Wednesday.

Jonny Evans opened the scoring in the West Midlands with his first ever goal for Manchester United, getting on the end of a header from Michael Carrick and stuffing his effort past Wayne Hennessey from close range.

Ronald Zuber was sent off for Wolves in the 39th minute after picking up his second yellow card, and the floodgates opened for the visitors as they hit for two more goals before the close of the first half.

Antonio Valencia doubled United's lead two minutes before the break, capping off a counterattack with power and pace as he broke free on the right wing and fired a shot past Hennessey.

Danny Welbeck added a third quickly after as he lashed a one-time shot toward goal from inside the box. A deflection helped take the ball past Hennessey, who was screened by his defenders and was left with little chance at a reaction save.

United emerged from halftime and went on to grab two more goals to complete the rout. Javier Hernandez bagged a brace with goals in the 56th and 61st minutes.

Chicharito netted his first goal of the match following a short corner kick. The Mexican followed some tricky movement in the goal area with an uncontested header from close range.

Hernandez grabbed another five minutes later with a well-taken finish. The poacher was at the back post to connect on a cross from Valencia with a half- volley, sending his shot into the roof of the net to cap a five-star performance from the reigning champions.

United, unbeaten in their last nine Premier League contests, improve to 70 points on the season to ensure that they remain top of the table by league play next weekend.

The win also sends Wolverhampton to the bottom of the table. Terry Connor's men entered the match tied with Wigan on 22 points, but the five-goal loss dooms Wolves to last place on goal differential.
