Wayne Rooney has been dropped to the bench by Sir Alex Ferguson for Manchester United's Premier League encounter with Fulham at Old Trafford.

With new signing Robin van Persie handed a full debut, Rooney was only amongst the substitutes as Shinji Kagawa was also named in Ferguson's starting line-up.

It was a major call by the United boss following Rooney's below-par display in the defeat to former club Everton on Monday.
