Goal of the month - Valencia v Wolves
March’s pick was our second at Molineux, a classic breakaway goal. From a Wolves corner, Rooney set Valencia free, and he flew down the right wing before smashing the ball past Wayne Hennessey.
Player of the month - Wayne Rooney
Wazza simply switched on the afterburners. He scored four times in four league games, passing 20 league goals for the season by mid-March – and in the game he didn’t find the net, he pulled all the strings as United routed Wolves 5-0.
