Wayne Rooney has broken Thierry Henry’s record of having scored the most Premier League goals for a single club – and it only took him 100 games more.

The United front man found the back of the net for United against Liverpool in Sunday’s early game which United won 0-1. It was a goal from a corner that broke the deadlock despite United looking impotent in front of goal for most of the match with Rooney latching on to the rebound after Marouane Fellaini had hit the bar with a header.

It was his first goal at Anfield since January 2005.

Speaking after the game, Rooney wasn’t even aware of the record but when it was pointed out he saidĀ “Obviously it’s great to have record but I don’t think that’s the feeling I have now.

“To score the winning goal at Anfield, I’ll be a bit selfish today and enjoy it more than most.”

The goal took Rooney’s tally for United to 176, one more more than Henry managed for Arsenal during his time with the club.

Of course, Rooney has played significantly more gamesĀ for United than the Arsenal legend (358 v 258) as Henry was with Arsenal for eight years while Rooney has played for the Mancs for almost 12.

Just saying (and we aren’t even mentioning penalties).
