Manchester United fans delighted with Wayne Rooney following performance against Derby

by Ben Topliss

Wayne Rooney continued his good form this year with an encouraging display in Manchester United’s 3-1 FA Cup victory over Derby on Friday.

Rooney opened the scoring for Man United with a superb curling effort after 16 minutes played at Pride Park.

The United captain had a year to forget in 2015 but he has been excellent since the start of 2016. Supporters were quick to praise Rooney for his performance:



Louis van Gaal dropped Rooney to the substitute’s bench for the game against Stoke on Boxing Day earlier this term and the move seems to have galvanised the 30-year-old.

Rooney is back among the goals and he is making a meaningful impact on games.

Of course, Rooney still has to do a lot more, as do United, but it is a step in the right direction as far as he is concerned. He will be hoping to get on the scoresheet again against Stoke City on Tuesday.
