Sir Alex Ferguson expects Wayne Rooney to be back among the goals in the coming weeks.

The Manchester United boss saw his young striker end a six-match drought by grabbing a brace in the Red Devils' comfortable 4-0 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

The boost has come at an ideal time for both the manager and the player, with crucial domestic and European games approaching in the coming weeks.

Ferguson joked that he thought the England man would never find the target again, before going on to praise the positive attitude of his young star.

"I thought Wayne was never going to score, to be honest," he said.

"But he is the kind of striker who could go on a run now and get goals in his next six or seven matches."

Full marks

Cristiano Ronaldo once again showed flashes of outrageous brilliance in the Old Trafford encounter, but his manager admits that he did not appreciate the mercurial magic involved in the winger's opening goal until he had seen it again on television.

"It was only when I saw the replay I realised what Ronaldo had done," he revealed.

"The execution was absolutely brilliant, so full marks to him.

"We displayed some great attacking movements, and you have to admire the players' enthusiasm in difficult conditions.

"It has to be one of our best performances of the season and just what was needed after Arsenal's victory.

"We have six games to go, four of them away, and it will be nip and tuck. But we are playing well and have improved our goal difference."

That is what I so hope! Rooney on full form is world class. He is so capable of getting a goal a game. Remember November? 8 games 8 goals or something like that. If he can hit that form for this end of the season run in just for 2 months (April and May) and with Ronaldo on fire - we should win thropies :D
