Rooney romps MOTM poll

Wayne Rooney was the resounding winner of our Man of the Match poll after an inspired display in the Champions League win over Bayer Leverkusen.

The striker made it to 200 goals for the club after netting United's first and third goals in the 4-2 victory on Tuesday night. He also made the fourth and was impressive throughout.

Users on ManUtd.com and followers on @ManUtd voted in their thousands, with Rooney claiming 75 per cent of the votes.

Team-mate Michael Carrick praised the forward after the game, telling MUTV: "It was as good as I’ve seen him for a while. He looked sharp and hungry; his movement and touch was all there and he showed exactly what a player he is. It’s great to have him in that kind of form."

Antonio Valencia, scorer of the Reds' fourth goal, was second with 16 per cent of the votes, while Robin van Persie, who volleyed home the second, collected nine per cent.
