UEFA Champions League: Double-ton Wayne Rooney gives Moyes winning start


Emir Spahic could only head the ball into Rooney’s path and the England striker shortened his stride before whipping the ball past Leno at his near post to bring up a double-century of United goals.

Rooney completed his night’s work by teeing up Valencia to drill home United’s fourth in the 79th minute.

A calamitous finale saw Toprak pull a goal back with two minutes to play after De Gea flapped at a corner before Van Persie somehow missed an open goal from 2m out, but it was not enough to spoil Moyes’ night.
