Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney feels their preseason form is now coming together after victory over Hannover.

Rooney believes Sir Alex Ferguson's team are edging their way back to their best after a difficult summer.

The England international said: "It's been a bit stop-start with the international players coming back a bit later but we've had to make sure we look after ourselves during the summer.

"I think tonight you can see that the players are looking better every game - fresher and fitter - and hopefully come next Monday against Everton we'll be ready because it'll be a difficult game."
