HYS: Should Wayne Rooney start vs Liverpool?

Wayne Rooney is the owner of an abundance of Premier League records and as Manchester United’s all-time record goalscorer, he’s the man many clubs have conceded to the most times throughout the last 25 years of top flight football.

Liverpool, however, aren’t one such club. Despite only plying his trade with their two most fierce rivals in Everton, Manchester United and then Everton again, Rooney has only ever scored six goals against the Reds from a whopping 27 attempts. That’s just shy of one every five games.

The 32-year-old attacker, who Transfermarkt value at £13.5million, clearly struggles to produce his best form in such an emotional occasion for him personally, having grown up on Merseyside.

So although he’s currently enjoying a bit of a purple patch with a hat-trick and an assist in his last two Premier League appearances, would you leave Rooney on the bench for the Merseyside derby this weekend?
