Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney became the first player in Premier League history to reach double figures for both goals and assists in five different seasons, after setting up Danny Welbeck in Saturday's 3-0 win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.

The 28-year-old turned in a man-of-the-match performance after scoring one and creating another, to make it 11 goals and 10 assists for the mercurial Red Devils marksman in England's top-flight in 2013/14.

Less than a month after signing a lucrative new five-and-a-half-year contract at Old Trafford, Rooney has once again emphasised his importance to David Moyes's side, and his influence within the first-team squad seems to grow year on year.

After joining Manchester United from Everton as an 18-year-old in 2004, a decade on and the England international has successfully established himself as a club legend.

With 210 goals already to his name, Rooney is just 27 away from surpassing Dennis Law as Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer, and is just 16 appearances shy of leapfrogging team-mate Rio Ferdinand's return of 448 games for the club.

Click through the tabs - above or below - to check out the other legends that Rooney has overtaken to become the leading double figure goals and assists provider in the Premier League.
