Moyes saw headers in each half from Jones and Rooney put the visitors in control before substitute Welbeck added gloss with a clinical late strike. United striker Robin van Persie was fortunate to avoid a second yellow card after a reckless challenge in the second half, but overall it was a rare satisfying afternoon for Moyes, whose side climbed to sixth place in the EPl table.
