Wayne Rooney has been one of the key players keeping Manchester United's tough season on track, but his latest achievement, making The Sun's team of the week, might be his finest yet.

Rooney was included, presumably for his performance against Newcastle United—which, given he was out with a toe injury sustained in midweek and therefore didn't feature, let alone play. 

Never mind Rooney being in the Sun's team of the week despite not playing - what the hell sort of formation is that? pic.twitter.com/JU4z2DBRNC

United won 4-0, thanks to a masterclass from Juan Mata, who scored a brace of goals and orchestrated the Red Devils' play.
