Social media reacts to Wayne Rooney netting his 200th PL goal

Social media have this evening reacted in typically brilliant fashion to Everton striker Wayne Rooney notching his 200th goal in the English top-flight.

Situation

Everton travelled to Manchester to take on Pep Guardiola’s City from the Etihad this evening, with both clubs coming into the game on the back of an opening day victory.

The opening half-hour saw the home side dominate in terms of possession and chances created, though the Toffees did maintain a threat on the break.

Opener

And it was via a perfectly-executed break that Ronald Koeman’s outfit took the lead, with Wayne Rooney coming back to haunt his old rivals.

Following some excellent work down Everton’s right-hand side between Mason Holgate and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, the ball was eventually squared to Rooney by the latter, with the English veteran making no mistake with his finish.

Reaction

The goal marked Rooney’s 200th in the Premier League, making him just the second player in the history of the division to achieve such a feat, after Alan Shearer.

And Twitter were standing by to congratulate the Everton and Manchester United legend on his achievement, with some of the highlights below:
