Everton secured a point away to Brighton on Sunday thanks to Wayne Rooney's last-minute penalty earning them 1-1.

The 31-year-old has seen his Everton side struggle at the beginning of the season despite over £150 million spent on improving the squad over the summer.

The former long-serving Manchester United man has scored four goals in his first 14 games as he operates in the deeper number 10 role.

Still, his 201st goal of his Premier League career helped ever so slightly ease the pressure on boss Ronald Koeman and made sure that Everton didn't leave the Amex Stadium empty-handed.

Rooney has now scored eight of his last 10 penalties in England's top-flight and the Toffees will hope to lean on his experience to help them through these testing times.

Considering the first goal from Anthony Knockaert didn't appear until the 82nd minute of the game, it's fair to say the first-half of Super Sunday wasn't a memorable thriller.

So much so that plenty of fans on took more joy out of what Rooney was wearing than what he was doing.

England's all-time record goalscorer donned a pair of classic 2008 T90 Laser II for Everton's 90' boots on for the affair with Brighton and they certainly did not let him down from 12 yards.

It has to be said, they look pretty special in all black!

On the pitch

Young Everton midfielder Tom Davies told the Liverpool Echo this week how he plans to emulate Rooney at Goodison Park and the former England skipper's trophy haul is something he desires.

“Yeah he's [Rooney] been great. It was kind of weird when he came back but then it felt quite natural that he was here," Davies said.

“It was quite strange really but having him around every day is so good for the team and for me really.

“Yeah he does [help me], especially when I've come off the pitch a bit unsure about my performance he's always there to chat with me about what's happened in the game.

“Growing up supporting the club, the stuff he's won is something I'd love to do.

"And to do it for Everton would be unbelievable. That's definitely something in my career I'd love to do.”
