Manager Louis van Gaal has also come out to praise his team’s attacking abilities after seeing a host of chances being wasted before their captain finally came to the rescue.

“It is a relief because you have seen an attacking Manchester United creating a lot of chances against a very good, organised team,” he said.

“It is always difficult to score goals and then we have to wait a long time.”

Apart from Rooney ending his and his team’s drought in front of goal, he also netted his 237th goal for the club to move up to joint-second with Denis Law on United’s all-time scoring list.

The Red Devils will face PSV Eindhoven in their next Champions League match as a win against the Dutch giants will ensure their qualification into the latter stages of the competition.
