United opened the scoring through winger Antonio Valencia who coolly slotted home after some good work from Wayne Rooney.
Robin van Persie, fit again was introduced in the starting line-up and the Dutchman enjoyed a fine afternoon by putting his name on the score-sheet as well. He becomes leading Dutch Premier League goalscorer with that goal.
And Wayne Rooney scored the third goal with a beauty. The England international has now scored more goals for Man Utd (12) against Fulham than any other club.
