Wayne Rooney, sporting a 1980s-style headband to protect the gash in his forehead, scored a beauty in Manchester United's 2-0 win against Crystal Palace.

United were ahead through Robin van Persie's penalty when they won a free-kick late on. Rooney then stepped up and produced a moment of pure class. 

To think United might have sold him this summer.
