SWANSEA -- Two goals each from Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck saw Manchester United beat Swansea 4-1 Saturday in David Moyes first Premier League game as manager of the defending champion. Wayne Rooney, who has reportedly told the club he wants to leave Old Trafford, came off the bench for the last 30 minutes of the match as Uniteds Premier League title defence got off to an impressive start. "Our job is to win the game and the players did it well," Moyes said. "We could have played better at times but I am more than happy with the result." Swansea began the game as the brighter side, with Michu forcing a good reaction save from United goalkeeper David De Gea midway through the first half, before heading the resulting corner wide. But van Persie opened the scoring with an acrobatic strike in the 34th minute. He controlled a deflected, looping pass from Ryan Giggs before volleying past Michel Vorm in the Swansea goal. Welbeck scored his first of the game two minutes later, tapping in Antonio Valencias drilled cross from close range. Swansea manager Michael Laudrup made two changes at halftime as he looked for a response from his team, bringing on striker Wilfried Bony for his Premier League debut and Pablo Hernandez for Leon Brittain and Wayne Routledge. But it was the first substitution that Moyes made, after 61 minutes, which grabbed more attention as Rooney replaced Ryan Giggs in the midst of English media reports that he wants to leave United for rival Chelsea. United began to push on for a third and Patrice Evra saw his header from a corner cleared off the line by Swansea debutant Jose Canas. Van Persie eventually got the third, his second of the game on 74 minutes, cutting inside on his favoured left foot and curling a powerful shot beyond Vorm and into the top corner from outside the penalty box. Bony managed to get a goal 10 minutes from the end with a neat first-time strike on the edge of the area before Welbeck completed the scoring, receiving a through ball from Rooney and lifting the ball over Vorm and into the far corner of the net with a sublime chip. And Welbeck drew praise from teammate van Persie for his skilful finish after the game. "The fourth goal from Welbeck was unbelievable," van Persie said. "Were very happy, you dont want to lose the first game of the season and they are very hard to play against." Speaking of his well-taken first goal, van Persie said his first touch led him to finish it in the style he did. "The first 15, 20 minutes, they were better than us but the goal changed the game. It was a great pass from Giggs and I had a touch but I felt it was a little heavy so I had to take it as high as possible." As for Rooney, manager Moyes was pleased with his contribution after coming on. "I felt he could do a job coming on, hes not ready to start yet," said Moyes. "He made a great run for the third (goal) and then set up Welbeck." Cheap NHL Jerseys . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams.

Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. Colorado cyclist Carmen Small will request arbitration to challenge her omission from the U.S. Olympic team in the time trial event, she and her lawyer confirmed Tuesday.Small, 36, of Durango, won her second national time trial championship in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, last month with a gap of 1 minute, 8.56 seconds over two-time defending Olympic gold medalist Kristin Armstrong and 1:53.02 over Evelyn Stevens, the other rider selected for the Rio 2016 time trial.The hearing procedure is defined by Section 9 of the U.S. Olympic Committees bylaws. A ruling must be made by July 18, the USOCs roster deadline for the Rio Summer Games, which start Aug. 5.Smalls lawyer, Howard Jacobs, said he did not want to go into detail about the arguments he plans to make on her behalf. He said Small is not seeking to replace a specific rider, but rather will contend that the selection criteria were not properly interpreted.USA Cycling spokesman Kevin Loughery said the federation would not comment until a formal request for arbitration was filed. Armstrong also declined comment and Stevens could not be reached.In an email to, Small said she was in shock and disbelief after the team selections were announced last week. She said her commitment to racing in Europe this season and her decisive win in head-to-head competition with Armstrong and Stevens at nationals should have earned her a slot on the team.This showing of my ability in my mind was not just worthy of my Olympic selection, but also the potential to be a gold medal favorite, Small wrote. This time around, I feel that I am the best athlete for the selection.Small won a world championships bronze medal in the individual time trial in 2013 and was one of six riders who won back-to-back world gold medals in 2013 and 2014 with the Specialized-lululemon team. (The team time trial is contested by professional, not national, teams.)The United States has one of the stroongest womens cycling contingents in the world and will send four riders to the road race in Rio.dddddddddddd. International federation rules mandate that the time trial entrants come from that quartet.This year, three of the slots, including both time trial entries, were discretionary choices, with parameters defined in a dense 23-page document posted on the USA Cycling website. Factors considered include results in Womens World Tour races, past Olympic Games and world championships.Megan Guarnier was the only rider who met automatic selection criteria when she won a bronze medal in the 2015 world championships in Richmond.There have been several arbitrations by U.S. women contesting major event selections over the last 12 years, most recently before the 2015 world championships in Richmond, Virginia, when Lauren Komanski filed a successful appeal that forced a last-minute roster change.Guarnier lost her appeal to replace Shelly Olds on the London 2012 road race team.Some riders and coaches have criticized the discretionary criteria over the years for being overly subjective and reaching too far back in time. USA Cycling officials have consistently defended their rules and said they are written to try to withstand arbitration challenges.Small wrote that she appreciates the difficulty faced by the selection committee, but added that a convoluted process leaves riders like herself guessing at how to put themselves in the best position for selection.I think if an athlete understands why they are not selected and has been through fair process, where everyone is held to the same standard, then we are happy to just work harder, she wrote.Smalls coach, Corey Hart, said he supports her decision to contest the selection and said there has been a troubling absence of transparency in the process.
