Wayne Rooney has further reason to be cheerful after leading Manchester United to victory over Liverpool on Wednesday night, with the England international now having reached 14 million likes on his official Facebook page.

The 27-year-old was handed the captain's armband for the encounter with Liverpool, which Manchester United won courtesy of a solitary goal from Javier Hernandez to confirm their passage into the next round of the Capital One Cup.

Rooney posted on Facebook this morning to reveal his satisfaction at achieving a win against the Anfield club, and was greeted by more positive news when he returned from training.

The Manchester United striker appeared to be overwhelmed by the amount of fans to have liked his official account, and was quick to express his thanks to all those to have shown their support.

He said: "Just got home from training, checked my Facebook and realised I've reached 14 million likes! Thanks to everyone of you, really appreciate your support!"

Rooney's rise to 14 million comes after a fine spell of goalscoring form, having found the net four times in three matches prior to the defeat of Liverpool.

He will have the opportunity to further increase his tally when Manchester United host West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
