Under fire in some quarters having scored just four goals entering the monster Manchester Derby, England World Cup striker WAYNE ROONEY could not have picked a more meaningful occasion and circumstance to continue his return to goal-scoring form, nor in such spectacular fashion, as well.

Indeed, a sensational overhead bicycle kick by a resurgent Rooney left England international goalkeeper JOE HART absolutely helpless and lifted Manchester United to an important 2-1 Premier League triumph in the always entertaining intra-city derby with cross-town rivals Manchester City.

The Manchester Derby match-winner was Rooney’s fifth goal in the English top flight this season. Four of the embattled England international attacker’s five tallies have arrived after the New Year. A season ago, of course, the Manchester United striker finished second in all the Premier League with a total of 26 goals in 32 games.
