Back to winning ways.....

Manchester United back on track for the unprecedented quadruple this season when their injury time goal earns them 3-2 win over Aston Villa at Old Trafford last night. Teenager Federico Macheda marked his Manchester United debut with an astonishing goal and keep them on course for the Premier League title.

The 17-year-old substitute, who replaced Nani after 61 minutes, showed tremendous composure to turn Villa defender Luke Young and curl the ball past Villa keeper Brad Friedel and give the champions the victory that took them back to the top of the table. Christiano Ronaldo also on scoresheet twice for United while John Carew and Gabriel Agbonlahor scored for Aston Villa. Ronaldo curled a free kick top corner on the net while Carew and Agbonlahor both headed the ball at the back of Van Der Sar's net.

It's a huge gamble by Alex Ferguson by replacing Nani for Macheda after Aston Villa leading the game 2-1. While it looks like United heading for their third successive defeat of the season, Ronaldo curled a low shot at Aston Villa Keeper in 80th minute which he failed to stop that shot. And in the third minute through injury time, the superb strike by Macheda lift United to top of league table, one point and one game in hand ahead of second placed Liverpool....

The future looks nice for Manchester United with their talented youngsters. After all, it's the same United's infamous Academy that created players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckam and the Neville Brothers...
