- Beat Liverpool 3-0
Manchester United comprehensively beat Liverpool to pick up their sixth successive Premier League victory.
Liverpool, and in particular Raheem Sterling, missed a host of good chances with David De Gea in fine form.
After the first such miss, Rooney swept home Antonio Valencia’s cross before Juan Mata doubled the lead with a header which appeared to be offside.
Robin van Persie completed victory to keep United in third, eight points behind leaders Chelsea, reports the BBC.
