Rooney: “Nothing beats scoring at Anfield”

Liverpool-v-Manchester-United (5)Wayne Rooney has described the feeling of scoring the winner at Anfield as one of the best emotions he’s ever experienced.

With United under the cosh, Rooney scored his first goal at Anfield in a decade to give his side a fourth consecutive win against Liverpool and the second against their bitter rivals away from home in as many games.

“To score the winning goal at Anfield, it’s been a long time since that happened for me, since my first years here, so I’ll be selfish today and enjoy that one the most.

“To be honest, I didn’t know about that record. Obviously it is great to have records but I don’t think it will beat the feeling I have now.

“I think everyone knows the importance of this game regardless of positions; we could be top or second from bottom. It’s a massive game for both football clubs and the fans.

“It was a great victory and three points, which we needed to keep up the good start to the year.”
