Wayne Rooney has heaped praise on his team-mates for his impressive form this season after the forward bagged a brace in Manchester United’s 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur yesterday.

Spurs twice took the lead through Kyle Walker and Sandro respectively at White Hart Lane, but Rooney was on hand to score the equaliser on both occasions, the first of which was a predatory finish and the second was from the spot.


And Rooney, who has scored 10 goals and provided 15 assists in 18 games in all competitions in the current campaign, credited his team-mates for his impressive display with special mention of Antonio Valencia.

"Obviously, I’m confident and playing well but that’s down to my team-mates", he was quoted as saying my Manchester United’s official site.


"[That includes] the likes of Antonio Valencia, who has been fantastic for the last couple of games, he’s a real threat.

“I’m just trying to do my job and help the team to be successful.”

The England international further admitted that Manchester United did not start the match in a good manner but feels that a 2-2 was a fair result.

"We didn’t start the game too well”, he added.

“We gave away a sloppy goal and made it difficult for ourselves.

“Thankfully, we got back into the game before half time. We played some decent stuff, and started well in the second half.

“Obviously, they hit us with the goal, and it was a great strike from Sandro.

“We had to regroup and we got the goal quite early on, so 2-2 at the end was probably a fair result."
