United captain back in form after a 2015 to forget – but can he do it at Anfield?

Wayne Rooney’s form has dramatically improved since the turn of the year, but as this infographic by leading fantasy football site Football Fanager shows, he faces a tough task on Sunday as his Manchester United side play Liverpool.

The England captain only scored six league goals in the entirety of 2015, but has half of that amount in just two games since January 1. After scoring twice in a man-of-the-match performance against Newcastle on Tuesday, Rooney appears to be recapturing the form that once made him one of the most feared strikers in world football.

However on Sunday Rooney visits one of his least favourite hunting grounds for a feisty north-west derby. With Liverpool’s makeshift defence leaking goals, will he continue his goal scoring run and put the Reds to the sword at Anfield?
