England Premiership Update: Manchester United
Good news for Manchester United fans – the Red Devils are within striking range of the elite England Premier League top tier going into MatchWeek 5. After Man Utd thrashed Queen’s Park Rangers 4-0 at home, United supporters are getting their hopes up that the titan club finally has their act together under the leadership of new manager, Louis van Gaal and newly appointed captain, Wayne Rooney.
Against Harry Redknapp’s QPR, Man United footballers Angel di Maria opened the scoring at 24 minutes, with more first half goals from Ander Herrera at 36 minutes and Wayne Rooney at 44 minutes followed by a second half goal from Juan Mata at 58 minutes.
Superstar striker, Rooney has now equaled former FC Arsenal forward Thierry Henry’s Premiership all time goals record of 175 goals. Leading his side to their first victory of the 2014-15 campaign, Roo now only needs 13 additional goals to move past Andy Cole and become the Premier League’s second highest goal scorer in history.
England international Wazza is now 85 goals behind former Newcastle United forward Alan Shearer who earned 260 goals in 441 career Premiership appearances. Rooney has 15 assists to his credit in United’s last 20 Premiership clashes. Rooney was named team captain after Nemanja Vidic left the side in Man United’s summer transfer spending spree.
During the Red Devil’s comfortable romp to victory against Queens Park Rangers, Roo moved into the No 10 spot when Falcao came off the bench to replace Mata at 69 minutes with the score already at 4-0.
