“I’m coming for you, maybe not in this life or the next, but I’m coming for you…”
Wayne Rooney’s 29th goal of the season saw Manchester United win their game in hand over Man City and eke out a three-point lead at the top of the Premier League – though Fulham were jilted out of a late penalty after a verdict of ‘no dice’ was returned despite Michael Carrick clumsily bundling Danny Murphy over as he waded through on goal in the 87th-minute.
Post game, even Sir Alex half-admitted his side were ‘lucky’ not to concede the spot-kick – a confession somewhere akin to milking a couple of millilitres of A/B+ from a stone.
In summary: another stale, laboured shift for United…and another victory.
