'Ruud and Rooney - Fantastic'

'Ruud and Rooney - Fantastic'

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hailed Rooney and Van Nistelrooy's partnership in attack.

Alex Ferguson: 'It's promising, there doing fantastically and they are great players. Some of our attacking was good. In general I was pleased with our performance.

'We're nine points behind Chelsea, it's a long way but what we can do is to make sure we win our games. If we do, then if Chelsea slip up we'll be the nearest team to them.

'It's the only thing you can do at our club, you can either wither and die or you can get off your backsides, get on the pitch and do something about it. In fairness to the lads they have worked their socks off in the last few weeks.

'Confidence is a factor, on Wednesday (against Wigan) the second goal was important because in our home games this season we haven't been taking our second chances and letting teams off the hook time and time again.

'The second goal on Wednesday was like walking into a new room for them, their game took on a different expansion, they had confidence in their play and that carried on today.'
