Premier League: Manchester United vs. Wigan Athletic Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Manchester United vs. Wigan Athletic Live Stream: Wayne Rooney could be among Manchester United‘s substitutes for today’s Premier League clash against Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford. But are fans ready to forgive him?
The 25-year-old striker, who was voted player of the year in England last season, has been out of action with an ankle problem and has not played since mid-October. Rooney was the subject of tabloid allegations that he cheated on his pregnant wife with a prostitute and threatened to quit United before changing his mind and signing a new five-year contract.
The Red Devils are the only unbeaten team in the league but have faced criticism for drawing too many games. They have gone 13 matches without defeat, but still…they are just third in the standings with 25 points. The Latics, meanwhile, have slipped to 17th in the table and another defeat could put them into the relegation zone.
Paul Scholes will return to United’s lineup having served his suspension, while Rio Ferdinand is expected to play despite being taken off at half-time of England’s midweek defeat against France. Wigan captain Gary Caldwell will miss the game with a thigh injury, while Emmerson Boyce is also out with a muscle problem.
The match kicks-off at 15: 00 p.m. UK.
UPDATE: Goals from Patrice Evra and Javier Hernandez helped the Red Devils beat Wigan and move up to second in the EPL standings.
