Wayne Rooney expects a much tougher test from Fulham at Craven Cottage than they got off the Londoners in the FA Cup last weekend.
Rooney was amongst the scorers as Manchester United cruised to victory at Old Trafford. Yet, on their own pitch, Rooney knows Fulham are a different proposition, having been part of the United side that has tasted defeat on the banks of the River Thames twice in their last four visits.
"The cup game was quite comfortable," said Rooney. "But at home, Fulham are a different team. They have got players who can take the ball between the lines because the pitch is not as big and then they can create chances. They are down near the bottom so they will be fighting to get one or three points."
