Although he did not score in the last Premier League match against Sunderland over the weekend he help his captain score a goal.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney scored his side’s second goal against Sunderland at Old Trafford.
Rooney also revealed that he was untroubled by his lack of Premier League goals this season after bringing his 1,000 minute drought to an end at the expense of the Black Cats.
“Our victory, together with City’s defeat, took us to the top spot in the table, which something new for me since I came to Manchester United”. Rooney further said that it feels quite nice to be at the top, adding that his team needs to keep progressing and improving if they want to sustain their place in the ongoing League.

“Manchester United are a very good side and we were really well organised in the first half“, Advocaat told SAFSEE afterwards.
