He had high praise for the deadly duo.
"He's a menace to any defender," Ferguson told MUTV of Chicharito. "If you look at his first goal, his movement and speed to get across in front of the defender was absolutely first class. Over the years you've always said that [players can struggle] if they have a good first year and they're young, but I expected what I saw today."
On Rooney's growing influence, Sir Alex claimed: "It's down to maturity. He's in his mid-20s and I always think when players get to this age they get more authority in their game, their timing is better and their control of games is better. His presence is getting bigger in every game. He's looking fantastic."
