Watch Wayne Rooney tie Manchester United's goal scoring record

Watch Wayne Rooney tie Manchester United's goal scoring record

Scholes also congratulated former England and United team-mate Rooney, who equalled Sir Bobby Charlton's record of 249 goals for the club with the opener against Reading.

Goals by Darren Bent and Tom Ince gave Derby County, from England's second tier Championship league, a 2-1 win over Tony Pulis' West Bromwich Albion.

"It's wonderful because everybody knows who Sir Bobby [Charlton] is and what he means for the history of the club and English football and, for Wayne to score the same number of goals for Manchester United, is fantastic".

"And for Wayne to score the same number of goals for Manchester United is fantastic".

Rashford nearly made it 3-0 when he rounded Al-Habsi but could only find the side netting before the Omanian stopper repelled Michael Carrick's stinging low drive after the break.




Jose Mourinho has revealed that he reached an agreement with Anthony Martial to manage the forward's playing time for Manchester United during the festive schedule. "To be up there with Sir Bobby in terms of goals is a huge honour".

That's because, as he proved with a photo uploaded to his own Twitter account, the Reading player did actually exchange shirts with the United forward once the two teams had left the pitch and made it down the Old Trafford tunnel. "Then you can see where you can improve as a player and how the team can be better going into the second half of the season". The last time Rooney failed to tally fewer than 14 goals in all competitions was in the 2003-2004 season, when he was 18.

Bournemouth, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Swansea City were the five Premier League sides to be eliminated from the FA Cup at the third round stage.

Steve Morison, Shaun Cummings and Shane Ferguson scored as London side Millwall won 3-0 at home to Bournemouth, whose manager Eddie Howe made 11 changes.

It was 2-0 by the quarter-hour mark as a neat one-two between Rooney and Martial enabled the latter to burst into the box and curl an effort into the bottom right-hand corner. Despite his recent failures, Jose Mourinho and numerous club's important players have insisted that Rooney remains an important part of the squad due to his experience and his position as club captain.
