Rooney voted star man

Fans voted Wayne Rooney Man of the Match in Wednesday night's 1-0 Capital One Cup victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The striker continued his fine form with another all-action, high-quality display and it was his corner that led to Javier Hernandez's decisive goal seconds after the restart.

Users on ManUtd.com and followers of our official Twitter page @ManUtd voted in their thousands, with Rooney, who was captain for the night, claiming 59 per cent of the votes.

Centre-backs Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans impressed, the latter on his first league start of the season, and helped keep a clean sheet by repelling Liverpool's dangerous frontmen, Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.

Smalling came second in our poll with 23 per cent and Evans third with 18 per cent.
