Larsson salutes fellow striker:
Henrik Larsson saluted the vision of Wayne Rooney after the striker set up the Swede to score his first Premiership goal for the Reds.
Rooney slipped a superb pass into the path of second half substitute Larsson who fired United into a 3-0 lead, before Rooney himself added a fourth.
"As long as you move well when you have a player like Wayne around you're always likely to get chances," Larsson told MUTV.
"I thought Wayne was going to go for goal initially, but at the last second he slipped a great ball through to me. I got a good touch on it and was delighted to see it go in past the keeper.
"It's easy to play with great players and Wayne is definitely a great player. He has superb vision and can score goals.
"I enjoy playing with the likes of Wayne and Cristiano [Ronaldo] immensely. At 35-years-old I didn't expect to get this kind of chance again. So to be here now playing alongside them is fantastic," he added.
The 4-0 victory was the perfect response to the late gasp defeat at Arsenal ten days ago as the Reds kept up their six point lead over Chelsea.
"We didn't enjoy losing the Arsenal game but none of us were worried about the response," insisted Larsson. "As professional footballers you have to pick yourselves up and get on with it.
"The manager has a lot of experience of these situations and he instils a lot of confidence into the players which is very important. There are some good characters in the dressing room and there is a great team spirit."
