Ferguson hails defensive duo
Wayne Rooney to stay at the club but is under no illusions as to the importance of a solid back four. He said: "It doesn't matter when you come here, it is always a difficult time. It is one of the hardest places to come in the league. They are such an enthusiastic and motivated team they make you play all the time. "Both our central defenders will have sore heads. Rio and Nemanja were fantastic, really fantastic. You have to defend well because they get so many set-pieces and throw-ins. They got a lot of free-kicks and you have to defend them well. We did defend well and if we can defend like that for the rest of the season we will be back to a real solid determination to deal with all these things which will make some difference to us."
