Fergie Hails Deserved Win

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes his side were good value for their narrow win over Fulham on Saturday.

The Red Devils were left frustrated for most of the match until Wayne Rooney’s 79th minute strike game them a 1-0 win.

Ferguson felt that on the balance of play his side were clearly more deserving on victory that their hosts.

"We had so many chances," he told ESPN. "In the first half we hit the woodwork three times but we deserved to win.

"It was a terrific football match and it was an excellent result. I'm very pleased for us."

Manchester United are now 10 points ahead of title rivals Manchester City and the veteran coach admitted he was delighted with their league position.

"It's a good position," the Scot said. "We are pleased. Tonight you can look at the performance of the players.

“They put their bodies on the line, blocking shots, great headers out of defence, really determined effort by the players."
