7 years ago

Wayne Rooney proved his love for Newcastle yesterday at Old Trafford, twice in fact.

Scoring two first half goals in thirteen minutes, the striker/midfielder finished the game off as a contest and handed Manchester United the three points.

Just to rub it in, Rooney intervened a third time by creating the third, his floated cross saw Van Persie head home with Newcastle’s defenders watching him in admiration.

With Wayne Rooney having so many similar moments vs Newcastle in the past, it may not surprise you to discover that the Man Utd player has now scored more goals against NUFC than any other club.

That is apart from Villa who he appears to have a similar affection for.

12 Newcastle United

12 Aston Villa
