Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was pleased with Shinji Kagawa's performance in victory over West Bromwich Albion.

The Japan international was handed a first start in two months after recovering from injury.

"Shinji did very well in the first half. Obviously you expect him to tire with it being his first game for a couple of months and at that point we brought Robin on. I'm very pleased with Shinji - he did his job very well and he worked very hard in the early parts of the game," said Ferguson.
