Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney is undoubtedly in the best form he has been for a long time following his spell of doubt of his future as a Manchester United player.

The England international forward previously seen his form drop over the past season and questions were raised whether Rooney would ever return to his best.

David Moyes foiled Chelsea's attempt to land the England forward, after the 27-year-old was in uncertainty over his striker position at Old Trafford. Along with numerous injuries, Rooney saw out for most of pre-season and the start of the new campaign.

Rooney hit back at critics suggesting the striker was no longer at his best by slotting two goals into the back of the net as Manchester United coasted to victory over German club Bayer Leverkusen.

Robin van Persie and Antonio Valencia were United's other goalscorers in United's 4-2 victory over the Germans, David Moyes' first Champions League game after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson.

Rooney also had an excellent game against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon, Moyes' first victory at Old Trafford, which saw the England striker find the back of the net with a wonderful free kick.

Rooney found his long forgotten form which saw the Merseyside born player reach his landmark 200 goals across all competition for Manchester United, only being the fourth player to ever reach such achievement for the Red Devils.
