Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is now a premier league legend after breaking the record for the highest number of goals scored by a player in the English Premier League with his superb effort against Liverpool this evening. More after the cut….
This comes just days after his brace helped the Red Devils stumble to a 3-3 draw against Premier League side Newcastle United.
