Sir Alex Ferguson: Hoping for a more convincing performance against Fulham than

The Premier League leaders overcame the loss of an early goal to secure a 2-1 win on Wednesday but Mauricio Pochettino's side had enough chances to have claimed a share of the points.

United face another bottom-half side in Fulham on Saturday and Ferguson warned against further complacency, despite last weekend's comfortable 4-1 victory over the same opponents at Old Trafford.

"The effort Southampton put in on Wednesday is a reminder to us that you get three points for every game, not just for beating teams at the top of the

league," he said.

"We've had great examples of that over the years. Last year we lost to Blackburn Rovers at home. You could quite easily say that cost us the league.

"I don't expect my players to be complacent, but Wednesday is obviously a great reminder.

"Fulham's home record is very good and has been for a few years.

"Hopefully we get the result we want because we are at the stage in the season where every game becomes important."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
