Wayne Rooney delighted with Liverpool win 

Wayne Rooney was left extremely pleased by Manchester United’s narrow victory over Liverpool on Sunday.

The Red Devils defeated the Reds 1-0 at Anfield with Rooney scoring the winner in the 78th minute.

It was the United captain’s first goal at Anfield since 2005 and helped his club move up to fifth place on the table but league positions aside, Rooney was thrilled to win a game of such magnitude against an age-old rival.

“Everyone knows the importance of this game – regardless of league positions, it is a massive football game and it is a great victory,” Rooney told Sky Sports.

“We needed the three points and to continue the start to this year, so it is a massive win for us.”
