Wayne Rooney and Manchester United won 3-2 at Fulham, but they lost the war as United’s star striker looks to be out for four weeks following a nasty flesh wound. Rooney was going after a shot by Hugo Rodallega, a Fulham player, whose cleats had a direct hit on Rooney’s leg. You can see pics of the nasty gash below, it was not pretty.

“It was a very bad one. He has gone to hospital. It looks like he will be out for four weeks,” United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said.
