Manchester United take on Newcastle United in the Premier League this evening and none of the magpies fans will be looking forward to seeing Wayne Rooney. The United front man has scored more Premier League goals against Newcastle than he has against any other team (equal with Aston Villa).


Rooney has managed to score some spectacular goals vs Newcastle and the chart below shows each of the 11 he has scored for Manchester United, in addition to the opening goal he scored against the Magpies for Everton back in 2003.

Rooney vs NewcastleWhen United last came up against Newcastle over the Christmas period, once again he terrorized them scoring the opening goal, then adding a second and finally assisting Robin van Persie's goal to make it three. Also who could forget his stunning volley from back in 2005 entirely fueled by frustration and rage from the referee's decision 10 seconds earlier.

This has now been a decade in which Magpies fans will have groaned every time they've seen his name on a team sheet and I can't imagine tonight will be any different.

Wayne Rooney himself had this to say on his Instagram account about taking on Newcastle.

"Looking forward to our game tomorrow against Newcastle and building on Saturdays win."

When you've seen his record vs Newcastle it's no wonder he's looking forward to it.
