‘It feels like a defeat’ – Wayne Rooney

Captain Wayne Rooney scored an early penalty and Jesse Lingard put the Reds ahead but the Magpies fought back to draw level through strikes from Georginio Wijnaldum and Aleksandar Mitrovic. It’s important to note that Rooney scored a goal that looked to secure three important points for the Red Devils until Newcastles’ Paul Dummett struck a deflected shot off defender, Chris Smalling, and past stopper, David De Gea, with seconds to play.

Rooney bemoaned poor concentration after Man United were forced to share the spoils with Newcastle United.

It’s very painful that Rooney scored a brace and set up another as United twice surrendered a lead in a thrilling 3-3 Premier League draw at St James’ Park on Tuesday night.

“It does feel like a defeat,” Rooney told BBC Sport.

“After scoring three good goals, it was maybe a lack of concentration – not staying with runners for the third – and that is disappointing.

“If you take a two-goal lead, we should be taking all three points and killing the game off. We didn’t take all our chances and we have been punished for it.

“We always want to try and play entertaining attacking football that is what we work on and try and do, and hopefully we can come up with more solutions.”

Well, what can I say?

Up Man U!
