Everybody is Convinced Wayne Rooney is Going to Score Against Liverpool

Everybody is Convinced Wayne Rooney is Going to Score Against Liverpool

Wayne Rooney failed to break Manchester United‘s all-time goal-scoring record against Hull City last night – leaving just about every football fan in the country under the impression the stage is set for this weekend against Liverpool.

The 31-year-old currently has 249 competitive goals for United throughout his time at the club, tying him with the legendary Sir Bobby Charlton.

Despite having several decent opportunities to surpass the English World Cup winner in the EFL Cup semi-final last night, Rooney couldn’t find the illusive strike that would put him out in-front on his own.

And United’s next opponents? Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

Is Wayne Rooney – a die-hard Everton fan as a boy and now Manchester United legend – about to break the record against Liverpool?

It seems a lot of people are convinced:

Rooney hasn’t been an automatic starter for United of late, but does the occasion have a sense of inevitability about it?

What do you think?
