Wayne Rooney's sarcastic tweet making fun of the Manchester City supporters was going viral on social media late on Monday night.

The Manchester United record goalscorer re-joined his boyhood club over the summer and has begun the 2017/18 season in superb form.

Rooney bagged the winner on the opening weekend of the season, as Ronald Koeman's side secured a 1-0 win over Stoke City.

The Blues faced a much tougher task in gameweek two, visiting Pep Guardiola's big spending Manchester City at the Etihad.

Everton took the lead through an instinctive left-footed Rooney finish before Manchester City's Raheem Sterling came off the bench to secure a point for the home side.

The former Manchester United captain has a knack of scoring goals at the Etihad and couldn't resist posting a tweet following Monday night's 1-1 draw.

It was his 200th Premier League goal - a feat previously only achieved by Alan Shearer.

To Gary Neville's delight, Rooney made a cheeky joke at Manchester City's expense in his post-match interview on Sky Sports.

The 31-year-old Everton forward has delivered some cracking tweets on the social media platform during his illustrious career and his latest one is certainly up there with his best.

Let's celebrate some of his finer tweets over the years.

It's fair to say he's developed his skills on Twitter - and his tweet trolling Manchester City fans is superb in a different way to the tweets above.

Man City fans may not have enjoyed it but Rooney's already got more retweets on it than any of his previous 2200 tweets.

Rooney's excellent start to the season is expected to put him right back in Gareth Southgate's plans for the England national team.

The veteran frontman is England's record goalscorer with 53 goals but was dropped from the national team earlier in 2017 due to a lack of playing time under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

Southgate was in attendance at the Etihad and is due to announce his squad for the upcoming fixtures against Malta and Slovakia on Thursday.

Rooney hinted at an England recall, suggesting a phone call with the 46-year-old manager will happen this week.

“I am focusing on Everton," said Rooney. "But I am sure I will speak to England manager Gareth Southgate over the next few days and we will see what happens.”
