Moyes: Man Utd lifted by strikers' return
- From the section Football
David Moyes says the return of strikers Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney is a "big lift" for Manchester United as they beat Cardiff 2-0 at Old Trafford.
Van Persie, who had been sidelined for 11 games with a thigh strain, scored after six minutes and Ashley Young doubled United's lead in the second half before Rooney replaced Van Persie for his first appearance since 1 January following a groin injury.
Moyes also praises United's new record signing Juan Mata, saying the midfielder brings "more craft" to them side.
