VIDEO: Rooney goal, Manchester United vs Crystal Palace, 22 Feb 2014

by Sam Peoples

As soon as Manchester United went 1-0 up against Crystal Palace, the players started to play with a new-found sense of confidence and it didn’t take long for Wayne Rooney to make it 2-0 with an outstanding goal.

He sweetly struck a half volley that floated into the top corner and gave Speroni absolutely no chance.

In a week where Rooney’s name has been all over the back pages due to his new long-term contract at United, it was the perfect way to show just why Moyes was keen to keep him at Old Trafford for as long as possible.

It’s amazing how much difference a goal can make because United started to look dangerous in every attack.
