Wayne Rooney had admitted that it was the fear of the manager and the reluctance to let his team mates down which drove him on to turn around the result yesterday against Hull.

“Obviously when they got the equaliser it was a mistake by myself and thankfully we got the win, or I don’t think the manager would have been too pleased with me,” said Rooney. “It wasn’t a nice feeling, I didn’t want to let the lads down and at the time it looked like that but it happens and we got the win in the end.”
