West Ham 2 Man Utd 0

West Brom 2 FT Liverpool 1


Stoke 1 FT Chelsea 1


Arsenal 0 FT Blackburn 0


West Ham 2 FT Man Utd 4



WAYNE ROONEY smashed a stunning hat-trick in the second half as Manchester United claimed a famous comeback win at West Ham.

Trailing 2-0 at the break following a brace of Mark Noble penalties, the Premier League table-toppers looked to be handing second-placed Arsenal a lifeline.

But Rooney had other ideas as a curling a free-kick, a tidy right-foot finish and a spot-kick of his own completed a dramatic treble.

Substitute Javier Hernandez wrapped up proceedings with six minutes to go as Alex Ferguson's men moved closer to a record-breaking 19th league title.

Whatever Happened to Lee Sharpe?


Before David Beckham and even before Ryan Giggs, there was another young starlet wowing the crowds at Old Trafford. He was none other than Lee Sharpe. The left winger was one of the first of Fergie’s Fledglings to break into the first team, but all the promise soon faded away as his career nosedived in his mid twenties. But what has Lee Sharpe been up to since those glory days at Old Trafford? Before we find that out we must discover how it went so wrong in the first instance.

Sharpe was playing for Torquay United when he was spotted by the Manchester United scouts. Managing only 16 games for the Gulls before United followed up their interest and signed him for £200,000 in June 1988, a record fee for a youth player at the time.


Following the sale of left-winger Jesper Olsen, and the unsuccessful signing of Ralf Milne, Sharpe was thrust into the limelight, making his first team debut only a few months after being signed. He made his debut for Manchester United on 24th September 1988 as a substitute in a 2-0 win over West Ham United, then going on to make a further 29 appearances for the first team that season.
