Wayne Rooney tweets his delight as Manchester United earn a dramatic 2-1 win over Watford in the Premier League
Wayne Rooney has taken to social media to reveal his delight at seeing his Manchester United team-mates secure a thrilling 2-1 win over Watford on Saturday lunchtime in his absence.
The England international is currently sidelined due to illness and missed Saturday’s clash at Vicarage Road as Louis van Gaal’s men claimed victory to move to the top of the Premier League table.
And the 30-year-old United captain could not contain his delight at seeing the Red Devils score a last-minute goal to earn victory against the Hornets.
Well done today lads big 3 points. @BSchweinsteiger congrats on your 1st goal

Memphis Depay – starting a Premier League match for the first time since October – netted the opener in the 11th minute when he volleyed home Ander Herrera’s cross.
However, the home side battled back and drew level when Troy Deeney smashed home an 89th-minute penalty after Marcos Rojo brought down Odion Ighalo in the box.
Schweinsteiger helped United secure the three points moments later, however, when the German’s ball across goal was bundled in by Deeney for an own-goal.
