VIDEO: Rooney scores brace against Southampton

Wayne Rooney scored two in the first-half as Manchester United extended their lead on top of the Premier League to seven points with a 2-1 win over Southampton at Old Trafford.

Lots will be said about the opening goal scored by Jay Rodriguez. David de Gea has been in the public eye more than any other goalkeeper in England since arriving while others have been wrapped up in cotton wool. He’s bound to get a bit of stick for jumping out of the way tonight, but he shouldn’t have been put in such a position. Michael Carrick is rarely at fault but that back pass was woeful. Thankfully it didn’t cost us three points.
