Rooney Sees United Past Fulham

Manchester United took a provisional 10-point lead at the top of the English Premier League table after a nail-biting 1-0 win away to Fulham on Saturday night.

Ashkan Dejagah went close just four minutes in when Hugo Rodallega had beaten the offside trap before teeing him up but David de Gea made the save.

Patrice Evra then hit the bar four minutes later when it seemed easier to score after Mark Schwarzer had pulled off a great save to stop an own goal.

John Arne Riise lashed a ferocious drive at goal in the 11th minute which worked De Gea while Bryan Ruiz hit the post with a shot from distance four minutes later.

The woodwork was then disturbed at the other end when Brede Hangeland looped a header onto the crossbar a minute later.

The open game continued with Wayne Rooney lashing a low shot just wide while the England forward curled another strike against the post after a sublime passing move from the visitors.

The game suffered a bit of a delay just before the break as the floodlight failed but things were soon back underway.

Robin van Persie managed to cut the ball back to Nani in the 64th minute but the Portugal winger saw his strike blocked while Sascha Riether worked De Gea and Ruiz failed to tuck away the rebound.

Rafael had to clear off the line in the 77th minute as United failed to deal with a corner and Rooney would hit back for the visitors when Senderos missed his header and the forward was waiting to slide his finish home.

The Cottagers were refusing to give in and Van Persie had to clear off the line in the second minute of stoppage time while Javier Hernandez charged up the other end but couldn't beat the goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation.
