WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) -- Manchester United eased the pressure on manager David Moyes following a comfortable 3-0 win over relegation-threatened West Brom on Saturday.

Phil Jones opened the scoring for the visitors in the 34th minute, heading past Ben Foster following Robin Van Persie's free kick.

United doubled its lead after the interval following a fluid move. A neat exchange between Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata saw the latter roll the ball wide for Rafael, and his cross was met by a completely unmarked Rooney in the 65th.

Substitute Danny Welbeck added a third in the 82nd minute to move United into sixth place, level on 48 points with Moyes' former club Everton.

Defeat leaves West Brom in 17th place, a point clear of the relegation zone.
