Rooney youngest to score 150 BPL goals



Wayne Rooney's first-half brace in Manchester United's game at Manchester City on Sunday made him the youngest player to score 150 goals in the Premier League era.

The England international, 27, struck in the 16th and 29th minutes at the Etihad Stadium to put United 2-0 up against their derby rivals at halftime.

Only five players have previously attained the 150-goal milestone since the Premier League was launched in 1992 – Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Robbie Fowler, Andy Cole and Frank Lampard.

Victory for United will give them a six-point lead over defending champions City at the top of the Premier League table.
