Wayne Rooney will be looking forward to Manchester United’s clash with West Ham United on Sunday considering his impressive goalscoring record against the Hammers.
Rooney has scored 18 goals in 20 games against West Ham racking up five assists along the way, a worrying sight for Sam Allardyce's side.
The Red Devils come into the clash in fine form having completed a routine win against Premier League strugglers Leicester City at Old Trafford last week and will be hoping for more of the same.
United are unbeaten in their last 12 top-flight games against the Irons, winning 11. Louis van Gaal will be hoping the impressive run continues to keep his side on the tails of rivals Manchester City.
Rooney posted on his official Facebook page: "Next up is West Ham away on Sunday and we will be looking for another three points."
Much has been made of their season with people claiming the Manchester United manager does not know his strongest team or formation. However, no matter how you look at it, Van Gaal’s side currently sit third in the league, 10 points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
