No Buts. It's Got to Be Buttner; WATCH OUT EVRA.. DEBUT HERO ALEX WANTS YOUR PLACE IN THE FIRST TEAM!


Byline: SIMON MULLOCK

MAN UTD 4 Scholes 51, Hernandez 63, Buttner 66, Powell 82 WIGAN 0 MANCHESTER UNITED blew Wigan away thanks to a flying Dutchman - and it wasn't Robin van Persie.

New boy Alexander Buttner, a pounds 4million signing from Vitesse Arnhem, announced himself with the kind of barnstorming performance that suggests he will become a real fans' favourite at Old Trafford.

Buttner, given his debut in place of the injured Patrice Evra, scored one and set up another in a devastating display of power and pace.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez said: "The penalty was as bad a decision as you will see. I don't know how you can explain it. He dived. He dived for the penalty."

Martinez was raging again when Welbeck was booked for an injury-time tackle on Franco Di Santo that left the Wigan striker in agony.

He added: "It was a bad foul.

It was completely reckless and under the new regulations you can't do that.
