LONDON - Wayne Rooney marked his first Manchester United appearance since December 23 with the only goal of the game as the Red Devils beat West Ham 1-0 in a FA Cup third round replay at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

The victory booked a fourth round tie at home to fellow top flight side Fulham.

Rooney scored in the ninth minute after the recalled Anderson produced a superb, defence-splitting pass and Javier Hernandez bore down on goal before unselfishly squaring the ball to the England striker, who was never going to miss from a few yards out.

The forward could have put the result in this all-Premier League clash beyond doubt in the second half but Rooney blasted over the top from the penalty spot.
