PICTURE: Man Utd player named in Team of the Week for performance vs Sunderland

Manchester United came a game closer to securing Champions League football for next season, with another unconvincing performance from Van Gaal’s side, but it was one that secured three points nonetheless.

The star performer was Wayne Rooney, who returned to a more familiar role as an out-and-out striker for the game, and that confidence shown in him by Louis van Gaal was rewarded with a brace.

The United captain scored from the spot midway through the second half, and backed that up with a header after Sunderland were down to 10 men. He scored an 8.13 rating on WhoScored.com’s rating system, and moe than justifies his spot in their Premier League Team of the Week.
