London: Wayne Rooney scored his fourth goal in three games as Manchester United beat Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage to move 10 points clear at the head of the Premier League table on Saturday.

Rooney's 79th-minute strike, his 10th league goal of the season, came after the game had been held up for 10 minutes before half-time because of a floodlight failure and increased the pressure on second-place Manchester City ahead of their clash with Liverpool on Sunday.

For long periods it looked as though Alex Ferguson's side would have to be content with a point, with Fulham surviving first-half pressure before growing stronger after the break.
