Wayne Rooney has scored more goals against Villa (12) than any other Premier League club.
Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has made midfielder Michael Carrick his new vice-captain Darren Fletcher was given the role as deputy at the start of the season, but the Scot has been restricted to just 49 minutes since the end of August. Carrick, 33, has returned from an ankle injury to start all six games in United's current winning run. "I have three captains," said Van Gaal. "You have a sequence: Wayne Rooney is one, Carrick is two, Fletcher three." Ahead of Saturday's Premier League trip to Aston Villa, Van Gaal highlighted the sense of calm Carrick has brought to the United camp. "He brings a lot of experience but also a lot of composure," said the Dutchman. "He can transfer my philosophy on to the pitch." Carrick operated in the middle of a three-man central defence in the 3-0 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford last weekend. It is a role he is suited to, although Van Gaal does not view Carrick's switch from his preferred central midfield role as permanent. "Now we don't have Daley Blind, w ...

Man Utd 3 (Rooney 12′ Mata 40′ Van Persie 71′) beats Liverpool 0 United captain Wayne Rooney gave them an early lead and Liverpool had every right to feel aggrieved when Mata headed in from a clearly offside position to take the game away from them just before half-time. Even before United took the lead, De Gea made an important save from Raheem Sterling, denying the England youngster on four occasions as well as producing three vital contributions to stop Liverpool substitute Mario Balotelli getting his first Premier League goal for the club. Robin Van Persie's third for United at the end of a lightning counter-attack only added to Liverpool's pain and gave the scoreline a lopsided look given the amount of work done by De Gea.

Man United v Liverpool rivalry in quotes Manchester United host Liverpool on Sunday as one of world football's bitterest rivalries is renewed at Old Trafford. Unlike last season's corresponding fixture, United are ahead of Liverpool again in the Premier League table and victory will extend their advantage up to 10 points. Here's a quick look back at some of the telling remarks that have helped add fuel to the rivalry's fire over the years: Former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson on Liverpool: 'My greatest challenge is not what's happening at the moment, my greatest challenge was knocking Liverpool right off their f*g perch. And you can print that.' Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard on the magnitude of the rivalry: “Maybe Barca and Madrid is up there, but, for me, ­Liverpool versus Man U is the biggest game because the Premier League is the biggest league in the world and these are the two most successful clubs." Reds captain Wayne Rooney: "I grew up an Everton fan, my whole family are Everton fans and I ...
STAT: Wayne Rooney has scored five goals in five Premier League starts against Southampton
Southampton 1-2 Manchester United 8 hours ago Saints were better team - Van Gaal By Mike Henson BBC Sport • Man Utd up to third for first time since August 2013 • United make two early substitutions • Visitors score two of their three shots • Southampton lose third successive game Manchester United climb to third in the Premier League after Robin Van Persie's brace gave them victory over an often-superior Southampton at St Mary's. United took an early lead as Van Persie pounced on Jose Fonte's slack backpass, but Graziano Pelle swept in a deserved equaliser as the Saints fought back. Southampton had plenty of chances, but Van Persie guided in Wayne Rooney's deep free-kick for the decisive goal. David De Gea turned away a low Pelle shot as Southampton ran out of steam. United's fifth successive Premier League win came despite registering three shots at goal to Southampton's 15, while the visitors' occasionally shambolic defensive performance cast further doubt over their solidity at the other end. ...

Southampton will be hoping Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal does not pair Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie together in attack for Monday night's Premier League fixture at St Mary's.
Manchester United recorded a fourth win in a row for the first time since December 2013 with a 2-1 triumph over Stoke City at a chilly Old Trafford on Tuesday night. Marouane Fellaini’s first-half header and Juan Mata’s free-kick - from which Marcos Rojo tried to claim a decisive touch - ensured the Reds collected another three points, although, not for the first time this season, an inspired moment from David De Gea was needed to safeguard the victory. Steven Nzonzi equalised for the Potters before the break and Mame Biram Diouf almost did the same, twice, in the dying seconds of the game but was thwarted by the Reds' no.1 and then an Ashley Young goal-line clearance. The absence of the injured Wayne Rooney and Angel Di Maria from United's team-sheet may have given the visitors a lift, but Asmir Begovic threatened to ruin a fairly trouble-free opening for Stoke with a careless pass to Robin Van Persie. The Stoke goalkeeper's blushes were spared when Ander Herrera scooped over from the Dutchman’s pa ...

Manchester United made it four straight Premier League wins with a 2-1 victory over Stoke City. United were missing the injured Wayne Rooney, who was hurt in a collision with an advertising hoarding against Hull on Saturday. But they took the lead on 21 when Ander Herrera’s cross was met by Marouane Fellaini’s header. Stoke levelled on 39 - Bojan Krkic’s run into the box was halted, the ball rolled back to Steven N’Zonzi who powered in a shot from the edge of the box. United took the lead on 59 – Juan Mata whipped in a free-kick, no-one got a touch and the ball flew straight past Asmir Begovic. In a dramatic finale, David De Gea made a stunning save to deny Mame Biram Diouf and then Ashley Young came to United's rescue with a sensational goal-line clearance in the fourth minute of stoppage time. After all the questions about Steven Gerrard’s future, Liverpool’s skipper played a pivotal role in their 3-1 win at 10-man Leicester. The hosts took the lead through Simon Mignolet’s unfortunate o ...

The star trio will hope to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in this year's team, having been shortlisted for a place in the illustrious side The shortlist for the forwards in Fifa's FIFPro World XI has been announced, with Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney and Diego Costa all nominated from the Premier League. The Manchester City striker leads the way, having helped his side win the Premier League in 2013-14, though injury curtailed his World Cup. Aguero has also hit the ground running this term, scoring 17 goals in 19 appearances. Rooney, meanwhile, was a rare bright spot under David Moyes, and has impressed under Louis Van Gaal, having scored his first ever World Cup goal for England at the World Cup. Costa will also fancy his chances of inclusion, with his goals last season propelling Atletico Madrid to the Champions League final, and his start under Jose Mourinho cementing his position as one of the finest strikers in world football. The Brazil-born Spain international has hit ...
Chelsea held; Arsenal, United, Reds win Chelsea dropped points for only the third time this season as the Premier League leaders were held to a 0-0 draw at Sunderland on Saturday. Jose Mourinho's side had swept to the top of the table with 10 wins from their 12 matches and only Manchester City and Manchester United had avoided defeat against the Blues in domestic action. But Chelsea were unable to break down dogged Sunderland, who held the Blues without a goal for the first time in 20 matches in all competitions this season. The west Londoners are now seven points clear of second-placed Southampton, who host champions City on Sunday. Chelsea winger Willian almost opened the scoring with a fiercely struck low shot that rebounded off a post. Yet Sunderland were making it tough for Mourinho's men and Santiago Vergini fired against the crossbar from 10 yards. A tetchy encounter got even more heated when Chelsea striker Diego Costa escaped with a booking rather than a red card for an elbow on Sunderland defend ...
Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney were both on the scoresheet as Manchester United cruised to a 3-0 home win over Hull City in the Premier League this afternoon. Chris Smalling bundled in during a goalmouth scramble before each of United's strikers scored either side of the break to confirm a third successive victory. Referee Anthony Taylor needed the technology to confirm that the defender's 16th-minute effort had crossed the line, and Smalling nearly had a second when he turned Juan Mata's cross into the side-netting. Former Red Devils captain Steve Bruce was returning to Manchester for his 700th managerial game, but saw his Hull side fashion only one chance as Michael Dawson volleyed weakly at David De Gea. There were question marks over Van Persie's place in the United team prior to kickoff, with Radamel Falcao having returned to fitness, and the Dutchman's tame shot at Allan Mcgregor suggested a lack of form. Rooney, meanwhile, is on a hot streak and he scored his fifth goal in four matches, and seve ...

Arsenal fell to back-to-back Premier League defeats for the first time since January 2013 this evening as Manchester United ran out 2-1 winners at the Emirates Stadium. A Kieran Gibbs own goal and a Wayne Rooney strike handed the visitors a two-goal cushion going into stoppage time, and Arsenal could not find a way back despite Olivier Giroud 's 95th-minute thunderbolt. Here, Sports Mole looks at who impressed during the latest installment of the storied rivalry. ARSENAL Goal Wojciech Szczesny: Had nothing to do until he came for a cross and collided with Gibbs, which led to the opening goal of the game. Had to go off with an injury as a result of the clash. (5/10) Defence Calum Chambers: Was rarely tested defensively and got forward whenever possible down the right flank to support the Arsenal attackers. Got a lot of joy in the opening half-an-hour or so, but did allow Young to cross the ball for the opening goal. (6/10) Per Mertesacker: Kept Van Persie very quiet throughout and could do nothing about ei ...
Manchester United moved above Arsenal in the Premier League table courtesy of a 2-1 victory over their old rivals at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon. Kieran Gibbs turned the ball into his own net to open the scoring 10 minutes after the restart, while Wayne Rooney added a second for the visitors with five minutes left of normal time. Olivier Giroud pulled a goal back in the fifth of eight minutes added time, but the Gunners could not find an equaliser in the closing stages as they slumped to a second consecutive defeat. Here, Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at an entertaining clash in North London. Match statistics Arsenal Shots: 23 On target: 9 Possession: 61% Corners: 11 Fouls: 12 Man Utd Shots: 12 On target: 2 Possession: 39% Corners: 5 Fouls: 8 Was the result fair? Arsenal only really have themselves to blame for not winning this match, but even so defeat is very harsh on the Gunners.

Man Utd VS ARSENAL HEAD TO HEAD!!! Manchester United have lost just one of their last 14 matches against Arsenal in all competitions (W10, D3, L1). That sole Arsenal win came courtesy of Aaron Ramsey's goal at the Emirates in May 2011. The clubs have met 219 times in all competitions. Manchester United lead by 92 wins to Arsenal's 79 and there have been 48 draws. Arsenal have lost to Manchester United 20 times in the Premier League, more than they have against any other team. Arsenal have dropped a league-high nine points from winning positions this season, as many as they did in the whole of 2013-14. Their two lowest points totals after 11 games under Arsene Wenger have come in the past three seasons (16 in 2012-13, 17 this season). Arsenal's four Premier League wins this season have come against teams currently in the bottom seven of the table. They last recorded fewer wins at this stage of a season in 1981-82. Alexis Sanchez has scored 12 goals in his last 14 matches for Arsenal in all competitions, in ...

Arsenal vs Man United: 10 stats that may determine the game's outcome Despite their investment during this summer, Arsenal and Manchester United have not managed to give their fans something to make them proud. Sure, The Gunners hired Alexis Sanchez and the Red Devils went on a shopping spree, but that's about it for two of the most important teams in the Premier League. Here's a statistical analysis about why this teams have not been able to perform correctly. 1. Arsenal's "Alexis-dependence" The Gunners' super transfer of the summer has really paid off, but the rest of the team has not backed the Chilean so far. Sanchez is at the top of the scoring table with eight goals, surpassed only by Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero, but the closest player to Sanchez in Arsenal's squad is Aaron Ramsey...with TWO goals. If Wenger's men want to improve their current sixth place in the table, they should pitch in more often to help the South American player. 2. Manchester's lack of leading scorer Perhaps variety is good ...
Former Man Utd teammates Welbeck, Rooney prepares for “weird” match as Arsenal hosts Red Devils Wayne Rooney, Danny WelbeckAP Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney have spent a lot of time on the pitch together at Manchester United and with the English national team, so it’s going to be a little weird when the two face off on Saturday at 12:30 pm ET on NBC. Perhaps complicating the situation more is that the pair just completed a rollicking pair of wins as England stars on the international break, and Welbeck, of course, is at Arsenal. The 6-foot, 23-year-old striker has two goals and two assists in 8 Premier League matches for Arsenal this season, plus a trio of goals in the UEFA Champions League. His fine form after being sold by his hometown club has, quite obviously, not escaped the eyes of his manager Arsene Wenger. [ PL PREVIEW: Arsenal vs. Manchester United ] “You can take every challenge in a positive way and that’s what he did,” Wenger said. “Rooney and Van Persie have an exceptional goals ...

England's Ross Barkley: I don't like Wayne Rooney comparisons Euro 2016 qualifier: England v Slovenia Venue: Wembley Date: Saturday, 15 November Kick-off: 17:00 GMT Coverage: Commentary on BBC Radio 5 live; live text commentary via the BBC Sport website, app and mobile devices Ross Barkley has dismissed "natural" comparisons with Wayne Rooney and says he should be judged on his own merits. The Everton midfielder has been named in the England squad for Saturday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia and Tuesday's friendly with Scotland after recovering from a knee injury. He could line up alongside captain Rooney, who is set to win his 100th cap against Slovenia at Wembley. Ross Barkley factfile Barkley made 34 Premier League appearances for Everton last season, with the Toffees winning 18 of those games. He made his debut for the club in the 2011-12 season, going on to make six appearances. He made his World Cup debut this summer when he came on as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat by Italy.

Nine Great Players Who Look Past Their Best 9) Steven Gerrard (Liverpool) At 34 years of age, there's no denying that Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard's influence on games is waning, even if he is still a key player and inspirational leader for the Reds. 8) Iker Casillas (Real Madrid) Once the best goalkeeper in the world, Iker Casillas has had a rough couple of years and is likely to be offloaded by Real Madrid in the near future. 7) Xavi (Barcelona) One of the finest playmakers of his generation, Xavi is now at the stage where he is not a regular for Barcelona and not the creative force he was at his peak. 6) Nemanja Vidic (Inter Milan) A legendary centre-back in Premier League football, Nemanja Vidic was poor in his final season for Manchester United last year and has not looked great at Inter Milan either. 5) Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) Still a great player on his day, but Wayne Rooney has looked a little jaded and past his peak for Manchester United and England in the last year or so. 4) Dani ...
IS ROONEY THE MIDFIELD MAESTRO UNITED IS CRAVING FOR? Wayne Rooney proved once again he can play anywhere. Rooney looked good, kept things neat and tidy and on the whole did well. He put in a good performance in midfield, which could be where his future lies, for the bigger games maybe. Considering Rooney hadn't played a club game for a month, he produced a tireless captain's performance that saw him cover every blade of grass - defensive blocks, midfield creativity and even a late foray forward that almost earned an unlikely equaliser. Little wonder he went down with cramp late in the game. Rooney is clearly able to deputise as a central midfield player and compete with the very best and Marouane Fellaini once again showed that he is finding his feet at Manchester United, at long last! Above and beyond that though, for 35 minutes or more against the Premier League champions, United dominated possession away from home and showed they are not easy pickings like they did twelve months ago. United fighting s ...
England Under-21s striker Harry Kane continued his impressive goalscoring form for Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday with a free-kick winner against Aston Villa. The 21-year-old has been amongst the goals for both club and country so far this season and his appearance from the bench in the second half at Villa Park helped Spurs come back from behind to collect all three points, courtesy of Kane's first Premier League strike this campaign. Elsewhere, Three Lions goalkeeper Joe Hart kept a clean sheet for Manchester City as they secured a 1-0 derby win over Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium. Hart kept out, amongst others, the returning Wayne Rooney after the England captain made his return from suspension to the starting line-up for United. Read the full round-up here:
Manchester United must improve defensively if they are to be a force again in the Premier League. A lot of United players are attack-minded - want to score goals. They boast some of the world's best attacking talent, with Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Radamel Falcao, Angel Di Maria and Juan Mata at Louis Van Gaal's disposal. But they have struggled defensively - conceding 13 goals in nine league fixtures this season - highlighted by a stunning 5-3 capitulation at Leicester City last month. The centre-back pairing of Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo fared a little better against league leaders Chelsea as United salvaged a last-gasp 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. With a mouth-watering Manchester derby set for Sunday, Cole - a five-time Premier League winner at Old Trafford - believes United can return to the top if they fix their defensive issues.
Manchester United vs Chelsea: Preview:Chelsea head to Old Trafford on Sunday looking to maintain their excellent start to the 2014-15 season that has seen them win seven of their opening eight Premier League games. Whilst the Blues were in UEFA Champions League action midweek, they only played 24 hours after Manchester United, who drew 2-2 at West Bromwich Albion on Monday night football. Louis Van Gaal’s side have been up and down, and whilst they have only lost one of their last seven in the league, they haven’t faced too many top half candidates, and have looked woeful defensively in just about every game. Team News Manchester United Jonny Evans and Paddy McNair missed Monday’s draw at West Brom but may be fit for this game. Both certainly won’t play as right-footed centre- backs – Louis Van Gaal has Marcos Rojo as the left-footed left centre-back, and Tyler Blackett can back him up. Midfielders Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard are still sidelined whilst Wayne Rooney serves the final of his ...

The Blues are back in action on Saturday against Crystal Palace but how long will Jose Mourinho get to spend with his players? Some Chelsea players will receive twice as much rest time as their teammates before the next Premier League fixtures following the international break. African stars such as Mohamed Salah and John Obi Mikel and will get just three days rest before Saturday's Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace compared with the six days Gary Cahill and Diego Costa will receive. With many European games being played as late as Tuesday night, players from countries such as Scotland and Ireland will get just four days rest before Saturday, compared to the six days those who played on Sunday, like England, receive. Manchester United and West Brom are the big winners since their league game is being played on Monday. With many of United's stars such as David De Gea and Wayne Rooney playing their last games on Sunday, as a squad they have, on average, 6.6 days rest. By contrast, sides such as ...

Jose Mourinho's magic formula has Chelsea leading from the front again To follow on from the thrills of last season's Premier League Title race -- eventually decided on the final day -- 2014-15 already looks a cakewalk for Jose Mourinho's Chelsea team. His formula for success looks likely to drive the same desired results: take the lead and stay there, leave the rest floundering, catch them cold. It is the recipe with which Mourinho has won each of his seven titles in four different countries. Only Chelsea can stop themselves. But they know that, too. We are already at that point in the season where the club's grandees are playing things down. "Clearly it's not over -- other teams have been in that position," John Terry told reporters on Sunday after captaining a rather routine 2-0 victory over Arsenal. "It's nice to have the lead, but when you're at the top everyone wants to shoot you down from top to bottom." That no team currently looks capable of shooting them down is ominous. Chelsea are in a positio ...
Juan Mata did not score on Sunday. In itself, that should almost count as breaking news. The Spaniard had delivered eight goals in his previous 10 Premier League starts. It was a return most strikers would be delighted to call their own. It would have made this particular attacking midfielder the first name on the teamsheet at many a club. At Manchester United, it rendered his the first name written among the substitutes. Or it did when Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao were all available together. Rooney’s red card against West Ham allowed him a reprieve and a return against Everton. Mata marked it with an assist for Angel Di Maria’s opener. That is Mata; most things he touches turns to goal. And yet, somehow, it does not seem to be enough. In the last 14 months, he has been dropped by Jose Mourinho and Louis Van Gaal. David Moyes lacked the boldness of the superstar managers. Instead, he shunted Mata out to the flanks and placed him in his tactical straitjacket whenever Rooney and Va ...
Wayne Rooney has scored 176 Premier League goals. He is now the outright 3rd top scorer in Premier League history.
Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has suggested Juan Mata and Paddy McNair will start Sunday's Barclays Premier League fixture against Everton. Spanish schemer Mata is favourite to replace suspended skipper Wayne Rooney in the no.10 role while McNair is set to retain his place after an impressive debut against West Ham last weekend, with Phil Jones not yet fit. The boss is hoping the injury situation clears up over the international break but is looking forward to seeing how his side performs against the Merseysiders at Old Trafford. "Juan Mata has played very well in his [Rooney's] position," stated Van Gaal at the pre-match press conference. "I have to choose. I will miss Wayne because he is the captain of the team but Mata can also play very well. "We still have three central defenders injured so he [McNair] shall play. He is the only player who can play in the right-sided defensive position. I chose him last week and he was very good. It's difficult for a player like him to maintain that level ...
LONDON, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal may have watched on somewhat uncomfortably as Danny Welbeck grabbed a superb Champions League hat-trick for Arsenal on Wednesday. Deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford after the arrival of Colombian Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco, Welbeck has hit the ground running in North London after Van Gaal off-loaded him for 16 million pounds ($25.8 million). Falcao, Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney have made little impact in United's worst start to a Premier League season since its inception in 1992. ...

This weekend was not an exciting one in the Premier League, as last Sunday saw shocks, with Leicester City’s comeback against Manchester United, and then Crystal Palace won at Everton against the odds. Week six of the Barclays Premier League saw Manchester United go back to winning ways, but they had to win the game the hard way after Wayne Rooney’s sending off. Chelsea continued their title winning form by beating Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge. Manchester City were part of a six goal thriller against Hull City and lost a two goal lead, but they bounced back in the second half to take all three points at the KC Stadium. There were two derby games on Saturday which both ended in draws, as Phil Jagielka scored a stunner to earn a point for Everton at Liverpool. Then Tottenham Hotspur had to work hard to earn a draw at Arsenal. Man Utd were two-nil up after twenty minutes, and strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie scored. Rooney went from hero to zero in the second half, with the score at 2-1 to Ma ...

It took the hosts just five minutes to open the scoring in what started off as a bright day for the captain, lofting a Rafael cross from the right over Adrian as the Red Devils began their day with a skip in their step.
Wayne Rooney was shown his first red card since taking the Manchester United captaincy after he was sent-off for a reckless kick at West Ham’s Stewart Downing during their Premier League match.
Only Alan Shearer (260) and Andy Cole (189) have scored more Premier League goals then Wayne Rooney (174).
Premier League, King Power Stadium - Leicester City 5 (Ulloa 17', pen. 83', Nugent pen. 62', Cambiasso 64', Vardy 79') Manchester United 3 (Van Persie, Di Maria, Ander 57'; Tyler Blackett sent off) Leicester City enjoyed a thrilling 5-3 victory over a woefully brittle Manchester United at the King Power Stadium. United surged into a two-goal lead when Radamel Falcao crossed for Robin Van Persie to head in at the back post, before Angel Di Maria scooped a wonderful shot over Kasper Schmeichel. Leicester pulled one back 14 seconds later, Leonardo Ulloa left unmarked by Rafael to head in at the near post. Wayne Rooney had been dropped back into the number 10 role after Van Persie and Falcao started. Before the match, Louis Van Gaal had described Rooney’s performances up front this season as, ‘not spectacular.’ He was little better in this role, playing at half the pace of those around him. In the second half, United extended their lead through Ander Herrera’s flick, but Leicester pulled one back afte ...

Wayne Rooney quietly climbed the list of the Premier League's all-time scorers Sunday while the new boys at Manchester United stole the show during the team's convincing victory over Queens Park Rangers.
Wayne Rooney has now scored 175 goals putting him in joint-third place in the all-time leading scorers list with Thierry Henry Juan Mata has now scored eight goals in his last 10 Premier League appearances for Manchester United As a visiting manager, Redknapp has now lost 15 times in 15 trips to Old Trafford in the Premier League (Opta and Infostrada)
THEATRE RENOVATION It was Old Trafford that did for Manchester United last season. The Red Devils lost seven times on home soil, as many times as relegated Norwich City, and after another reversal on the opening day of the season, to Swansea, Sunday’s match against QPR was must-win for Louis Van Gaal. And in a reasonably poetic twist, United scored three times before half-time at home in the league for the first time since that spring night in April 2013 when Robin Van Persie scored a first-half hat-trick and Sir Alex Ferguson won his 13th and final League Title wit the club. 17 months on and the new era finally looks like it has arrived, with new signings Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria scoring and Wayne Rooney reaching 175 Premier League goals, a total only Alan Shearer and Andrew Cole can better. The last time United failed to win any of their opening three league games, in 2007-08, they won the fourth match and went onto claim the title.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has matched Thierry Henry's all-time Premier League goals record with his strike against QPR on Sunday. The England captain picked up the ball from Ander Herrera before cutting inside from the left and beating Rob Green at his near post to give Louis Van Gaal's side a 3-0 lead before half-time. Rooney has now scored 175 times in the English top flight, the same as Former Arsenal hero Henry. The former Everton forward reached the landmark in 377 appearances, whereas Henry took just 258. Rooney is now joint third in the all-time scoring charts, and needs just 13 more goals to leapfrog Andy Cole into second. But he is still 85 behind former Southampton, Blackburn and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer, who notched 260 times in 441 appearances.

Wayne Rooney's bicycle kick against Man City - one of the greatest goals ever scored in the Premier League!
Manchester United will give debuts to a posse of new players, including Radamel Falcao, when they attempt to kickstart their flatlining Premier League season against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday (10. Falcao was the headline acquisition of United’s £150 million close-season splurge and is expected to get his first run-out at Old Trafford following his loan move from Monaco. Fellow new signings Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Luke Shaw are also in line to make their debuts, the latter having overcome a hamstring problem, while record-signing Angel Di Maria will make his first home appearance. United’s need for reinforcements was emphasised by a disappointing start to the season in which they failed to record a win in their first three league games and were bundled out of the League Cup by third-tier Milton Keynes Dons. With players such as Robin Van Persie, Juan Mata and captain Wayne Rooney also at his disposal, manager Louis Van Gaal now faces a challenge to accommodate all of his star names in his pre ...

Manchester United have made a breakthrough in their pursuit of Angel Di Maria with the Real Madrid star having decided he wants to join Louis Van Gaal's side, Goal understands. United are ready to pay in excess of £45 million to get their man and Goal understands the club will offer him a pay packet that eclipses Wayne Rooney's £300k-a-week deal, including signing on fee and additional bonuses. Goal revealed back in July that an agreement between the Premier League club and Real Madrid was close and now Di Maria's desire to link up with Van Gaal should push the deal over the line. The former Benfica star's Madrid career is all but over, with boss Carlo Ancelotti revealing on Thursday that Di Maria had asked to leave the club having rejected a new deal to prolong his stay at the Bernabeu. The summer arrivals of James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos have nudged Di Maria down the Los Blancos pecking order, with the Argentine being left of the squad for the Supercopa de Espana defeat to Atletico Madrid on Friday.

Premier League: Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney keen to move on - TEAMtalk
Manchester United are confident Danny Welbeck will still be at the club after the summer transfer window closes. The 23-year-old has been linked with a move to other sides in the Premier League, including Hull City who have been rumored to be plotting a £14million. But the Mirror reports United want to keep at the club as he fits in new boss Louis Van Gaal’s plans to play in the 3-5-2 system. The England international may find it difficult to receive opportunities upfront due to the presence of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van and Javier Hernandez, but could be used as wide player due to his work ethic. That will disappoint Hull who made Welbeck their main target to replace Shane Long who has made a move to Southampton for £12million. The FA Cup runners-up have been keeping an eye on several fringe players from major Premier League sides as they look to emulate their success from last season.

Millions of Reds all over the world are united today in condemnation of a dire opening day performance from Louis Van Gaal’s side. The 2-1 defeat at the hands of Swansea City in front of a packed Old Trafford shattered hopes that a return to the glory days are just around the corner following last season’s sorry showing. Hopes were high going into the new season following the arrival of Van Gaal. But the display against a solid, but hardly sensational, Swansea was a total let down. Certain players – Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Javier Hernandez, Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini and, of course, Nani – should hang their heads in shame. You wonder just how bad the Reds would be without the newly-appointed skipper Wayne Rooney. Sadly, only the England striker out of this sorry bunch of a squad would be an automatic choice for City or Chelsea, who are sure to be contesting the Premier League Title. And arguably hardly any other of the United starting XI would make the Arsenal or even Liverpool teams in c ...
Manchester United 1-2 Swansea City: Sigurdsson condemns Van Gaal to opening day defeat The Iceland international struck late on to give Garry Monk's men a famous victory, despite Wayne Rooney cancelling out Ki Sung-Yueng's first-half opener with an acrobatic strike Gylfi Sigurdsson's smart finish saw Swansea Cityclaim a surprise 2-1 win at Manchester United as the Louis Van Gaal era started in defeat. Sigurdsson bagged the winner 18 minutes from time on Saturday as Van Gaal - tasked with improving the fortunes at Old Trafford after David Moyes' disastrous spell in charge last term - endured a day he will want to forget in his opening Premier League fixture. The Dutchman's 3-4-1-2 system did not appear to suit United despite being used in pre-season and they found themselves behind when Ki Sung-Yueng scored from 20 yards just before the half-hour mark.

Van Gaal rues United performance Louis Van Gaal was disappointed with his Manchester United side's disjointed display after Swansea won 2-1 to gatecrash his first Premier League match at Old Trafford. Ki Sung-yueng stunned the expectant United fans by handing the visitors a first-half lead, before newly appointed captain Wayne Rooney scooped an overhead kick home from close range to level the scores after the break. But just when United were expected to go on and secure the victory Gylfi Sigurdsson bundled the past David De Gea, who should have done better, to get Van Gaal's reign off to a losing start. "We didn't reach the level we have shown in the past matches and that is disappointing because this is the most important match," Van Gaal told BT Sport 1. "We were disappointing in defence and we are disappointed with ourselves and that's why we lost today."

Manchester United reach “verbal agreement” on $80 million Arturo Vidal deal Arturo Vidalis edging closer to the exit door at Juventus after Manchester United are said to have reached a “verbal agreement” with the reigning Italian champions. Vidal, 27, is set to become the most expensive player in United’s history as an $80 million deal has been agreed according to Tuttosport in Italyand reports from Vidal’s homeland Chile. [RELATED: Transfer Rumor Roundup] In those reports it states that Vidal will be paid $470,000 per week, which would make him the second-highest player at the club just behind Wayne Rooney. Vidal is a great box-to-box midfielder who has shone for Juve over the past few seasons, but is he that good? Although the numbers seem a little off and slightly extortionate, even for a player of Vidal’s quality, you have to say that United need to splash the cash in order to elevate themselves back to the upper echelons of the Premier League. That’s stating the obvious, but so far n ...

United's game against Swansea City on 16 August will be the second time the Reds have played in the opening Premier League fixture of the campaign. In 2005, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney scored in a 2-0 win at Everton.
Uruguay forward Luis Suarez did something which he did not manage to do in the Premier League this season – score past Joe Hart – as he netted twice in the South Americans’ 2-1 win over England in their Group D clash in Sao Paulo. While Roy Hodgson named the same 11 as the one which started against Italy in Manaus, he gave Wayne Rooney the role behind Daniel Sturridge up front. Following their 3-1 defeat by Costa Rica, Oscar Tabarez named no fewer than five changes to his starting-line-up, with the talismanic Suarez fit again after a knee injury. Indeed, it was Suarez who created the game’s first real chance. His whipped, low corner to the near post looked to be swinging-in, catching Hart off-guard, but the ‘keeper recovered and parried the ball behind for another corner. England’s best early chance also came from a set piece. A goal-bound effort from Sturridge hit the arm of Diego Godin and referee Carlos Velasco awarded a free-kick in a central position. Rooney stepped up to take it and curl ...
Four Most Disappointing Football Stars Of 2014 World Cup So Far The Brazil World Cup has been a timely reminder of how some of the game’s biggest stars have fallen since we last saw them on the international stage. While some players are setting the competition alight with incredible goals and wonderful performances, others are leaving the competition with their tails between their legs. Below are some of the stars who have so far failed to live up to their billing: Steven Gerrard: The Liverpool captain took up where he left off against Chelsea few days to the end of the past English Premiership season; a calamity that all but ended the Merseysiders’ quest for a first League Title in the Premier League era. This World Cup was supposed to be some sort of redemption for the Englishman as he led a brand-new, promising young England squad to Brazil. He, along with fellow veteran Frank Lampard and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, were the only survivors from a talented, but failed Golden Generation. ...

Suarez: Uruguay must respect England's young guns The Liverpool striker praised Leighton Baines and Wayne Rooney, though he believes Roy Hodgson's side still have weaknesses in defence that he can take advantage of Luis Suarez believes that Uruguay must be careful when they take on England at the World Cup despite the Three Lions' inexperienced squad. Suarez, who is recovering from a knee operation and is hopeful of playing a full part in Brazil, could come face-to-face with a number of his Premier League counterparts when Uruguay face Roy Hodgson's side in Sao Paulo on June 19. And he feels that the youthful nature of Hodgson's squad will give them an extra edge during the tournament, though he still feels they have issues in defence.

"Now there are players coming through with hunger to succeed. We have to be very careful. "But, they do have weaknesse ...

WAYNE ROONEY : CAN HE LIGHT UP BRAZIL? More than a decade after he made his England debut as a fearless and prodigiously-talented teenaged tear-away, it is still hard to find a consensus on Wayne Rooney's value to his country. Is he the world-class talisman upon whom several England managers - as well as thousands of travelling fans - have invested their hopes of overdue success? Is he merely a good player whose intermittent brilliance exposes the mediocrity of many of his international teammates? Or is he the English enigma - perhaps even underachiever - who has caused so much frustration at major tournaments? What is clear is, that at the age of 28 and with 90 caps and 38 goals behind him, Rooney owes England a big World Cup in Brazil. The Liverpool-born striker might have won Premier League and Champions League titles since joining Manchester United from Everton in 2004, but his England career has no obvious mark of distinction. He is even waiting for his first goal at a World Cup. In Germany in 2006, ...

y Hodgson has named England's 23-man squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. While there is an experienced core to the squad — Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Glen Johnson have over 300 caps between them — the overriding theme is one of of youthful vigour and promise. Or inexperience, if you're feeling ungenerous. As expected, this season's Premier League success stories are well represented. Five of the stars of Liverpool's oh-so-close title campaign are selected, including forward Daniel Sturridge and midfielder Jordan Henderson, while Southampton and Everton have contributed three players each, the hugely exciting Ross Barkley among them. However, indifferent seasons with Manchester United mean that Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick only make the reserve list, as does West Ham's Andy Carroll.

Football - Premier League United hit four to give Giggs winning start Premier League, Old Trafford - Manchester United 4 (Rooney 40’ pen 48’ Mata 64’ 73’) Norwich City 0 Ryan Giggs enjoyed his first win as Manchester United manager with a 4-0 victory over Norwich City. Giggs watched in a suit from the sidelines, having left himself out of the match day squad. He was joined in the dugout by Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Phil Neville. United initially played much as they had for the whole season, struggling to find momentum or break the opposition down. Most of the play came down the right wing, with Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia sending in a number of poor crosses. Just before half time, Steven Whittaker brought down Danny Welbeck as he prepared to latch onto a loose ball Norwich failed to clear, and Wayne Rooney scored with a confident penalty. In the second half, Rooney took three minutes to extend the lead, curling in a fine shot from 25 yards. United regained some of their old confidence, and ...

Wayne Rooney starts for Manchester United as they attempt to book a last four spot at the expense of holders Bayern Munich.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is suspended following his first leg sending-off, Javier Martinez also misses out through suspension, while a third key midfielder, Thiago Alcantara, is out injured.

(continued) Salahmade the breakthrough with 31 minutes gone, firing home an excellent first-time effort after good work down the left from Nemanja Matic. An offside flag denied Ivanovic Chelsea's second when he headed in Lampard's cross just before the break. TOP OPTA STAT Salah has scored as many goals for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge (2) as he has against them at the stadium (both for Basel). The visitors made a determined start to the second half and, with Chelsea struggling to assert themselves, Mourinho introduced Hazard from the bench. The Belgian immediately had an impact, playing a neat backheel into Salah inside the box, where the Egyptian was brought down by half-time substitute Andy Wilkinson for a Chelsea penalty. Lampard'seffort was initially saved by Begovic down to the goalkeeper's right, but the England midfielder responded first to tap the loose ball into an empty net.

Manchester United's senior hierarchy is “evaluating all possibilities” as it attempts to arrest the club's steep descent under David Moyes. Contrary to public statements that Sir Alex Ferguson's successor will definitely be granted at least a second season as manager, Moyes' dismissal is prominent among those possibilities. Though Tuesday's humiliating 3-0 home loss to Manchester City ensured that United's first post-Ferguson season is statistically the club's worst in the Premier League era, the review of potential candidates to replace Moyes should not be regarded as a knee-jerk reaction. Key decision-makers within the Old Trafford board have been assessing potential replacements as manager for several weeks and further talks are planned. Having already sanctioned a spend of over £60 million on two headline transfers, handed Wayne Rooney a club-record contract renewal, and approved an unprecedented recruitment spend for this summer, the Glazer family is said to be concerned that the Scot will con . ...

'Pedestrian. Predictable. Man Utd were a mess' 26 March 2014 Updated 07:01 GMT By Phil Mcnulty - Chief football writer, BBC Sport The sight of a line of Old Trafford stewards guarding "The Chosen One" banner draped over the Stretford End since the appointment of David Moyes as Manchester United manager suggested the mood has started to sour. And the sound of loud and mutinous voices - not too many but enough to be noticed - raised against Moyes and even in the direction of Sir Alex Ferguson, the man who did the choosing, in the directors' box as Manchester City inflicted the latest embarrassment on the fallen Premier League champions carried even greater significance. Liverpool winning 3-0 at Old Trafford less than a fortnight ago was arguably a greater shock to the system than City winning by the same margin on Tuesday as the Merseysiders have barely appeared in United's rear view mirror in title terms in recent years. But there was a difference. United's supporters stayed in place in a noisy show of def ...

KEY BATTLES: Wayne Rooney can check Manchester City's title charge The Red Devils will be gunning for revenge after their 4-1 defeat to the Citizens at the Etihad back in September. Manchester United go into Tuesday’s derby against Manchester City a whopping 18 points off top. With their title hopes gone, some Man United fans are left praying for Liverpool not to win their first Premier League Title. Some would even go as far as wishing victory for Manchester City tomorrow night. 1:WAYNE ROONEY v Vincent Kompany Rooney goes into the match in a rich vein of form. The striker has flourished for the Red Devils ever since he signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract last month. He moved up to third in the club's all-time top scorers list with a brace on Saturday, the first of which came from almost 50 yards. Kompany will need to use all his strength and pace to keep the England striker quiet. 2:Marouane Fellaini v Yaya Toure Toure warmed up for the derby with a well-taken hat-trick in City's 5-0 win over F ...

Football - Moyes: Rooney strike is derby boost Manchester United Manager David Moyes claims his players will carry "vital belief" into Tuesday night's derby after Wayne Rooney's wonder strike set up victory at West Ham. PA Sport Report – 21 minutes ago Rooney's 58-yard goal spurred United to a 2-0 Premier League victory at Upton Park, and title-chasing Manchester City are next up for Moyes and his men at Old Trafford. The 28-year-old's eighth-minute opener evoked memories of Beckham's famous halfway-line lob against Wimbledon. Former England captain Beckham was a conspicuous face in the crowd as Rooney mimicked his long-range effort from that 3-0 Wimbledon victory back on August 17, 1996. Beckham's wry smile spoke volumes of Rooney's immediate contender for goal of the season, and United manager Moyes suggested the strike can breathe confidence through his revitalised Red Devils. "It was a great goal by a top, top player: technical ability, and awareness to know exact where the goalkeeper was," said Moy ...
Wayne Rooney on the half line takes control of the ball and smashes the ball from his shoelaces as he finds the goalkeeper off his post and what do you know, it's Wazza's day as the ball calmly bounces into the net and Manchester United are ahead! It was Wayne's day as not only did he score the goal which probably is Premier League's goal of the season but he also etched his mark in United's history as the third highest goal scorer displacing the legendary Jack Rowley :) It was also wonderful to see Juan Mata play in his preferred position and Shinji Kagawa making a start. Rooney doubled the lead and sealed 3 points for David Moyes! All in all 'Wazza day it was!' GGMU :) PS: Get well soon, Robin Van Persie.
Diego Maradona thrust his "Hand Of God" into the air and smiled in approval. If there was a moment that confirmed Liverpool's right to be taken seriously as Premier League Title contenders, this was it. The legendary Argentina World Cup winner, sharp suited and sporting deafeningly loud ear-rings, was in attendance in Old Trafford's directors' box on a day of huge and contrasting significance for Manchester United and Liverpool. And Maradona, looking like a well-dressed pirate, will have savoured the quality in Liverpool's display on a day when the secret was well and truly out. Manager Brendan Rodgers, in the shadow of Chelsea and Manchester City, has shaped a side that can win their first title since 1990. Maradona will have appreciated the movement and menace of his fellow South American Luis Suarez, whose partnership with Daniel Sturridge shone a harsh light on the seemingly dysfunctional footballing relationship between Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie. The Argentine will have noted the relentless w ...
United slipping into mediocrity 17 March By Zoran Milosavljevic Conceding three penalties to Liverpool at Old Trafford would have usually triggered a furore among Manchester United fans, players and management under any other circumstances but for the humiliating manner in which they lost Sunday's derby. Not even the fiery Wayne Rooney questioned referee Mark Clattenburg's decisions on an afternoon the England striker described as one of the worst days he ever had in football, after a crushing 3-0 defeat left United with only a forlorn hope of finishing in the top four in the Premier League. Rooney's post-match comments underlined a gulf in class between the two teams this season, with the balance of power swinging back towards a Liverpool side transformed by Brendan Rodgers from mid-table underachievers into title contenders. United, shockingly for their fans, seem to be heading in the opposite direction - at least in the short term. The mauling United suffered at the hands of their bitter rivals actuall ...

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has revealed that Manager David Moyes was influential in his decision to stay at the club. The 28-year-old signed a new contract with the Premier League champions last month that will see him remain at Old Trafford until June 2019. "David Moyes's influence on me signing the new contract was absolutely massive," he told The Mirror. "Certain issues did arise last season that I wasn't happy about. But out of respect to Sir Alex Ferguson, I won't talk about what went on because as far as I'm concerned it's all in the past. "When David Moyes took over, he made it clear to me straight away that he wanted to draw a line under last season. And the key thing was when he assured me that he had total belief in me. Just as important, he also told me things that I probably didn't want to hear. "He told me I had lost something from my game and that I needed to get back to basics. The boss reminded me about the player I was. He wanted to know what had happened to all my aggression. ...

Manchester United face Liverpool this weekend in one of global football’s most enduring rivalries and, as ever, there is far more than pride at stake for each team. Three points for Liverpool at Old Trafford can reinforce their position as genuine contenders for the Premier League Title, with the Reds having ascended into second position, ahead of Arsenal by virtue of goal difference. Manchester United may have already relinquished the trophy they won last season, and their focus has now moved to secure a place in the coveted top four positions. Victory against Liverpool would go some way to achieving that for David Moyes’ side. There is, of course, also the added incentive for Manchester United to quash any title ambitions Liverpool may have and, in doing so, remain on top of the English Football perch to which they have climbed, with 20 league championships to the 18 won by their greatest of rivals. This rivalry is one that means more to Wayne Rooney than most, with the born and bred Evertonian havi ...

Premier League shared the following link and had this to say about it: FULL-TIME West Brom 0-3 Man Utd Goals from Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck hand Manchester United all three points at The Hawthorns
Manchester United kept their slim hopes of a top-four Premier League finish alive with victory at lowly West Brom. A Rafael header was tipped onto the crossbar before United took the lead when Phil Jones powered in a header. The Baggies exerted some pressure in search of an equaliser and striker Victor Anichebe angled a shot wide. However, United secured the win when Wayne Rooney headed in from close range and Danny Welbeck provided a cool finish after a well-worked move.
£15.6m - Wayne Rooney's annual wage eclipses the reported salary of Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo (£14.25m) and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, whose reported wage is £12.08m a year, according to the 2013 Forbes rich list. £160,000 - The figure he will have to spend once tax and national insurance contributions have been taken off his £300,000-a-week wage. £30,000 - The average weekly wage of a Premier League footballer in 2011-12, according to statistics compiled by Deloitte's sports business group. £517 - The national average weekly wage of a person working in the United Kingdom. The amount the prime minister earns pales in comparison to what Rooney will pocket, with David Cameron collecting around £2,740 each week. 65 - The amount of weeks it would take Barack Obama, the president of the United States, to make what Rooney earns in just seven days, based on his £240,000-a-year wage.

David Moyes and Manchester United remain bullish for Olympiakos tie • Manager believes United can win Champions League • Wayne Rooney says strikeforce is working hard in training From David Moyes and his Manchester United players the message is clear: no one is giving up on the Champions League. Wayne Rooney, Darren Fletcher and Nemanja Vidic all echo the manager's bullishness that a fourth European Cup is not beyond United despite the side standing sixth in the Premier League, 11 points from qualifying for next season's contest. To tout themselves as able to win a tournament that includes the holders, Bayern Munich, who are more formidable this year, and the gilded Barcelona team of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Neymar, sounds fantastical. Yet this is a cup competition and Moyes spoke at the weekend of "doing a Liverpool", who triumphed nine years ago as underdogs, while Chelsea in 2012 also somehow pulled off the trick of lifting the trophy when deeply unfancied. United's quest continues in the last 16 at ...

By their own standards, Manchester United are officially in a mess It's been said before, but we might as well say it again: What has happened to last year's Premier League champions? The fact that Charlie Adam banged in two goals in a 2-1 win that made Stoke City the eighth side to down United tells you what kind of a state David Moyes' side are in. Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie all started, but United might as well have fielded the reserves for all the difference it made. The title went up in smoke weeks ago, but things have gone way beyond that point now - the way things are going, they'll be lucky to earn a Europa League spot. Unless there is a marked response at Old Trafford to end these continuing relapses, United's run of 17 consecutive seasons enjoying Champions League football - a greater number than any other club in Europe, including Real Madrid - is about to come to an end.

There is a new sense of optimism in the Manchester United camp ahead of Saturday's match at Stoke City. Tuesday evening's 2-0 win against Cardiff City at Old Trafford not only earned the Red Devils a welcome victory - only their second in seven league and cup outings - the match also featured an impressive debut by club record signing Juan Mata, plus the return of star strikers Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney from lingering injuries. Spain midfielder Mata, who moved to United from Premier League rivals Chelsea last weekend for a club-record fee of 37.1 million pounds ($61.2 million), was applauded off the pitch on Tuesday after being substituted after 85 minutes. Netherlands striker Van Persie, who missed 11 matches due to a thigh problem, started against Cardiff and headed United in front after only six minutes. England forward Rooney came on as a 63rd-minute replacement for Van Persie after a five-match absence with groin trouble. Ashley Young scored a second for United just after the hour mark. Unite ...
Talksport Exclusive Louis Saha has told talkSPORT Manchester United will not make the top four despite signing Juan Mata from Chelsea and Wayne Rooney penning a new contract. Spanish winger Mata's club-record £37million arrival has got Red Devils fans excited but their former French striker warned the club not to rely only on the midfielder to help the ailing side. Asked if the Premier League holders, who are seventh in the table, could yet make a Champions League place, Saha told Drivetime: "I doubt it. Obviously there will be changes. Mata will bring them something new but it will take them a big, big run to catch the fourth spot." But the ex-France international added that Mata's arrival and Rooney's extension indicates things are improving at Old Trafford. "The style of play is not right and a player like Mata is going to have the same sort of impact as [Mesut] Ozil did for Arsenal. I really hope straight away it's a good thing for the team because they desperately need some creativity in there. "Roo ...
