Wayne Rooney Becomes Second Highest Premier League Goalscorer With 200 Goals

Former Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney scored the 200th Premier League goal of his career as Everton drew 1-1 away to Manchester City. Rooney slotted home the opening goal of the game for the visitors before Raheem Sterling earned City a point despite being down to 10-men due to Kyle Walker's red card.

The 31-year-old forward, scoring for the second consecutive game following his return to Everton, joins Alan Shearer as the only man to net 200 goals in the competition. He remains 60 goals shy of Shearer's tally but moves further clear of third-placed Andy Cole who scored 187 times. Rooney's form suggests there are more to come.

He said “It is not bad for someone who is not fit any more and cannot get about the pitch, I have always put a shift in for the team.”
