Wayne Rooney Scores 200th Club Goal - Man Utd 4-2 Stoke City

Rooney was delighted as he experienced milestones with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The striker's first goal of the season, first career own goal and 200th strike at club level for both United and Everton all were part of an exciting game against Stoke City that United won despite going behind through Rooney's error.

"It was my first own goal but thankfully we came back from that and managed to go in at the break in the lead, that was great for us," said Roo.

"I think it was a good performance from us. Stoke put a lot of high balls into the box and in the main we dealt with it well. There was just that one slip when I’ve scored the own goal. I was marking Ryan Shawcross and he ran me in there, there were bodies in the way and Charlie Adam's free-kick just hit me.

"I think it was important that I moved on from it quickly and didn’t let it affect the rest of my game. I think overall we deserved the three points."

Rooney's first goals for anyone this season came while he was on international duty last week, when he netted a brace in England's 5-0 win over San Marino and then followed up with an away strike in Poland.

"I think as long as I’m playing well it doesn’t really concern me that much if I’m not scoring for United. Obviously as a forward you want to score."

"I’m delighted to get off the mark and to get amongst the goals. Hopefully there’s more to come."
