Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted with the work of his attacking trio in victory over Stoke City.

Wayne Rooney (2), Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck were all on the scoresheet in the 4-2 win.

"The more games Wayne gets, the better he's going to become and I am pleased he’s off the mark with his two goals and Danny's off the mark too," said Ferguson. "I think that’s about 15 [different] goalscorers already this season so that’s good.

"We saw that flexible movement we have up front where Robin ended up wide left and put in a great cross for Wayne to score [the first goal] with a fantastic header. That kind of movement does bother teams and I’m glad they have started to gel quite well that way."
