Rooney made his United debut in 2004/05, a season which featured a total of 975 goals, or 2.56 a game.

The Englishman knew that such a big decision would draw a lot of questions or criticism, and he revealed that he had taken a lot of advice from the people close to him. "I hope before the match and after - but not during it".

Ronald Koeman will be without Ross Barkley, Funes Mori, Yannick Bolasie and Seamus Coleman for the clash against the Red Devils as they are all out with injuries.

"What I did with him was what I do normally with every player - like Jones".

Wayne Rooney will return to Old Trafford tomorrow with his reputation somewhat diminished, but no less of a Manchester United icon.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes it will be hard for summer signing Romelu Lukaku to match the goalscoring exploits of former striker Wayne Rooney.

Koeman has showered praise on the Belgian, saying that "he is a great finisher", who is fast, strong, and unsafe in the box.

"We have had games where we've played well and a few games where it hasn't gone so well".

Could Rooney become the first player to score at Old Trafford for an opposing team in 2017/18?

Ronald Koeman's men have conceded eight goals in defeats to Chelsea, Tottenham and Atalanta, with that three-match losing streak the tail-end of a five-game winless run.

"Yes, it's different in possession now for us if you have a target man up front".

"We have different types in Dominic and Sandro".

Koeman has spoken highly about new summer signing Sandro Ramirez, saying that the player needs time to adapt to a new league. Yes, he has pace but he's not physically the strongest. It is used too easily, but he deserves that title.

A game that is full of reunions, Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini will welcome their old side to Manchester, while Wayne Rooney joins Keane as the English pair return to Old Trafford, as a Blue, for the first time.

Rooney himself has had a fortnight to forget after his arrest on suspicion of drink driving and the fact he's seen his side ship six goals without reply in the last two games.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan should retain his place in the attacking midfield role while Juan Mata could also start once again on the right after impressing during the early stages of the season. A return in mid-October looks likely for the 24-year-old.
