Wayne Rooney became the fifth highest goalscorer in Premier League history after netting a brace in Manchester United's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The England international scored his 163rd and 164th goal in England's top-flight, to secure a well-earned point for the reigning champions at White Hart Lane.

Twice Spurs led, courtesy of a Kyle Walker free-kick, and a 25-yard thunderbolt from Brazilian midfielder Sandro, and twice the 28-year-old responded, with a close-range effort and a second-half penalty.

Rooney's first came after a mistake by goalscorer Walker, who nodded Phil Jones's cross into the path of the prolific striker, who has now scored five goals in his last five Premier League games.

His second was even more straightforward, after David Moyes's side were awarded a penalty, when Hugo Lloris was adjudged to have fouled Danny Welbeck, who latched onto a perfectly-weighted through ball from man of the match Rooney.

Drilling his spot-kick down the middle of the goal, Rooney notched his 151st in Manchester United colours, and moved above Robbie Fowler on the all-time list of Premier League top scorers.
