Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson got the same championship feel from Wayne Rooney's winner at Fulham that he experienced when Cristiano Ronaldo scored on the same ground six years ago.
On that occasion, United went on to claim the first of three successive Premier League titles. And with the Red Devils now 10 points ahead of Manchester City, who entertain Liverpool on Sunday, and a massive 16 clear of third-placed Chelsea, it is hard to see the outcome being any different this season.
"It was similar to when we played here a few years ago when Cristiano scored near the end and we went on to have an undefeated run after that," Ferguson said. "It was around the same time too. It was well taken and Rooney was unlucky before that, hitting the post and having a couple of shots saved by the goalkeeper."
