After scoring our winning goal against Wigan last night with less than a minute played, Wayne Rooney was forced off through injury. A damaged hamstring will see him out for 3-4 weeks. Whilst we have Carlos Tevez to fill in, there is no substitute for Rooney’s passion and dedication. He will certainly miss our league games against Bolton, West Brom and Everton, as well as our FA Cup game against Spurs and possibly our first leg Champions League game against Inter Milan.

How much will we miss him?
