Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed his team for securing victory in a Premier League match played against Fulham on Yesterday at the Craven Cottage Stadium. Manchester United defeated Fulham by 1-0 in that match. Wayne Rooney was the one who scored the only goal of the match in the 79th minute.
With the help of this victory, United has now had 62 points in 25 matches which is 10 more than Manchester City. However, City has played only 24 matches so far and it will take on Liverpool today.
Talking to the reporters in the post match press conference, Ferguson said, “I am really satisfied with the way boys played today. Fulham is not an easy team to beat on its home ground. They have a fantastic record at this venue and most of the opposing teams have struggled here. Today also, they gave us a tough fight. But, we battled hard and came out victorious at the end.”
“Now, we have got a 10-point lead which is great. I am very happy about it.”
“Our defense has been under the scanner in this season, but, today, the defenders were the real heroes. They performed really well today.
When asked about the performance of Jonny Evans who made a comeback after recovering from injury, Ferguson said, “He looked untroubled on the pitch which means that he has got rid of the hamstring problem completely. He contributed today by setting up a goal which would have boosted his confidence.”
“Overall, I am very happy with how things went today. But, again, I want to say that there is no room for complacency at this stage. We need to continue playing like this in all the upcoming matches.”
Manchester United’s next match will be a Premier League encounter against Everton at Old Trafford on 10th of February.
