Although primarily a striker, Sir Alex Ferguson has been known to deploy Rooney in a deeper role at times, and when United travelled to Stoke he found himself playing in the heart of midfield. 

Rooney excelled in the role and drove his team on to a well-earned 2-0 win. The result left United needing just seven points from their remaining six league games to wrap up a 20th league title.
