Manchester United dominated and eventually dispatched Huddersfield Town on a poignant night when a minute's silence was impeccably observed for the victims of the Munich tragedy of '58.
Here then are the five main talking points from Old Trafford:
#5 Romelu Lukaku needed that goal
Barring that Tottenham game - where almost every single man in red was below par - Romelu Lukaku has had a good run of performances, and although the goals refused to come as freely as they did in the beginning of the season he's put in some great shifts, running the channels, holding play up well and bringing everyone into the game.
Against the Terriers, it was all reversed. His overall play barely rose above decent - but he scored the kind of goal that can rejuvenate any striker... running onto a superb Juan Mata pass and tucking in a neat volley from close range.
Lukaku needed that goal - and if he can marry the overall performances he is capable of to this efficiency in front of goal - United will end up laughing at the critics that have already decried the signing of the Belgian.
P.S. He has 19 goals in all competitions - it's not like he's not scoring at all. But this one, an opener to break a tight defence, was important.
