Man City vs Everton: Rooney speaks on scoring 200th Premier League goal

Everton striker, Wayne Rooney has said it was a “sweet moment” to score his 200th Premier League goal, in their 1-1 draw at Manchester City on Monday night.

Rooney became just the second player to accomplish the feat after Alan Shearer, who finished his career with 260 goals in the Premier League, which began under its current format in 1992.

The 31-year-old met Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s pass with his left foot and sent it through the legs of City goalkeeper, Ederson to put Everton ahead in the 35th minute, though City struck back late to earn a 1-1 draw.

“It was nice,” Rooney told Sky Sports about his landmark goal after the game.

“To do it today in such an important game for us, with tough games coming up, it was a sweet moment and I am sure the red half of Manchester will have enjoyed it as well.

“To join Alan Shearer, that amount of goals, obviously a lot to do to catch Alan.

“But obviously it’s a great moment and hopefully a lot more to come.”
