Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is looking forward to Wednesday night's Premier League clash against his former club Everton, following Sunday's hard-fought 2-2 draw against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

The Red Devils showed tremendous character to come from behind not once but twice during the Premier League encounter, with the in-form Rooney scoring both of the visitors' equalising goals.

The 28-year-old, who has netted 10 goals for United in all competitions so far this season, believes Sunday's result was a fair reflection of how the game panned out - but admitted it could have gone either way during the closing stages of the second half.

"After the game went to 2-2 yesterday, anyone could have won it, so i'd say overall the draw was a fair result," Rooney commented.

Next up for Manchester United are Everton, who are also the former employers of manager David Moyes, at Old Trafford in mid-week.

Victory for the reigning Premier League champions could lift them up to fourth place in the table if results go their way - and Rooney is relishing the prospect of competing against his boyhood club.

He added: "Looking forward now to Wednesday when we play Everton at Old Trafford."
