Wayne Rooney scored his 249th goal for Manchester United in our 4-0 win over, making him the joint all-time top scorer along with Sir Bobby Charlton.
After the game, it looked as though Rooney had asked Reading player George Evans whether he wanted to swap shirts, and the played had turned him down.
Evans spent 13 years at Manchester City, having joined them as a six-year-old, before signing for Reading a year ago. City fans on Twitter got very excited about the prospect of Evans showing his loyalty to the blues.

Evans took to Twitter to clear it up, much to the disappointment of the desperate City fans.
