However, Rooney still has some work to do to catch former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard and his United assistant manager Ryan Giggs.
The former Everton striker has scored seven times and has made four assists in 21 Premier League appearances so far this season.
United are in fifth place in the Premier League table and 12 points behind leaders Leicester City.
