Wayne Rooney sunk a spirited Fulham with a first half goal, keeping United on course for a 20th League title at Old Trafford.

Rooney’s 21st top-flight goal of the season, which arrived towards the end of the first half, proved enough to see off spirited mid-table opposition.

The result sent Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, who have won their last six league games, three points clear of neighbours Manchester City at the top of the table with eight games remaining.
