Wayne Rooney, The Red Devils legend scored the opener for Everton against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium as the match sadly ended without a winner.

The Toffees took the lead in the 35th Minute as Rooney wheeled away in celebration. As the ball crossed the line Rooney ran in front of the City fans cupping his hands to his ears.  City’s night turned worse as they soon lost their new £50million signing Kyle Walker after he was shown two yellow cards minutes from half time. Substitute Raheem Sterling equalized for City in the 82nd minute.  Everton were also down to 10 men when Morgan Schneiderlin was shown the red card minutes before full time.

Wayne Rooney’s 50th, 150th, and now 200th Premier League goals have all come against Manchester City.

The 31-year-old said it was a “sweet moment” to score 200 goals in the Premier League. This makes him the second player to accomplish this feat after Alan Shearer who finished his career with 260 Goals.

“It was nice,” Rooney told Sky Sports about his landmark goal after the game. “To do it today in such an important game for us, with tough games coming up, it was a sweet moment and I am sure the red half of Manchester will have enjoyed it as well.”

Rooney’s goal was his second in the league since returning to Everton this summer after 13 years at Manchester United, where he scored 183 goals. He scored 15 in his first stint with Everton from 2002-04.  He has scored 156 with his right foot, 23 with his left and 21 with his head. It took him 462 games to reach the milestone, while Shearer needed just 306.

And the forward said he was happy with his new role under Ronald Koeman after struggling to stay in Jose Mourinho’s plans at United last season.

No matter what club he plays for he continues to perform and should his performance be enough for him to get him a place in the national team?
