Wayne Rooney is currently the highest scorer in the league, whilst team mate Dimitar Berbatov, who has missed a month of the season through injury, is 13th.

He could have scored a hattrick last night against Wigan, hitting the woodwork twice as well as netting a goal.

Rooney has 15 goals in all competitions this season, so is just 8 goals short of equalling his best goal tally of 23 back in 06-07.

“I would hope to beat my best total,” said Rooney. “If I don’t get another eight goals from now until the end of the season there is something seriously wrong. I hit the post before I scored and the bar afterwards. I am doing well and I feel fit. Hopefully that will continue.”
