With Sir Alex Ferguson in the stands and Ashley Young diving to the ground, Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Old Trafford. Robin van Persie scored the first goal from the penalty spot just before halftime and Wayne Rooney sealed it with his first of the season.
Wearing a protective headband over his healing head gash, Rooney curled a free kick just out of reach of Palace keeper Julian Speroni in the 81st minute. And then he posed.
Rooney is all smiles again, which makes his latest transfer request seem like it never happened. Until it happens again.
