Ferguson delighted with "superb" Man Utd in Fulham win

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted with the manner of their 5-0 win at Fulham.

Danny Welbeck, Nani and Ryan Giggs were on target in a first half that was dominated by United, with Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov completing the rout after the interval.

"We played some superb football in the first half," said Ferguson.

"It's not an easy place to come. We have experienced that in the last three years. We have got one point from nine here so that shows you the difficulties. But the players were really on song and just continued their form from a great display against QPR.

"The early goals do help. We started off with really good patience for the first goal. We kept passing the ball and knocking it around and then got the penetration from Nani and Danny took his goal very well.

"It was a great start and allowed us to keep control up to half time. It was a great strike from Wayne and a great goal from Dimitar Berbatov.

"We had to make changes tonight. We ended with Antonio Valencia at right back.

"Great credit to the players for standing up to the problems."
