Martial, Rooney and more: Man United stars react on Twitter to Swansea win
Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney take to social media after Manchester United edge to a 2-1 victory over Swansea City
Wayne Rooney became the Premier League’s second-highest goal-scorer of all-time behind Alan Shearer after the Manchester United captain scored in a 2-1 win against Swansea City on Saturday.
Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson cancelled out Anthony Martial’s 47th-minute header at Old Trafford before 30-year-old Rooney netted a sumptuous winner to secure three points for the hosts.
United’s triumph over Swansea was their first Premier League victory since a 2-1 win at Watford on 21 November after defeats by Bournemouth, Norwich City and Stoke City and stalemates with Chelsea, Leicester City and West Ham.
