Wayne Rooney has enjoyed a very good start to 2016.

The Manchester United striker was on target once again on Friday night against Derby County, as the visitors claimed a 3-1 victory at the iPro Stadium in the FA Cup fourth round.

That took the England skipper's goal tally in the current calendar year to six before the end of January. In 2015, he scored a total of 13 goals through 12 months.

Per Daily Mirror, other statistics that note his improvement include a goals-per-minute ratio of one every 90 this year, compared to one every 300 last year, and a shot conversion percentage of 40 this time around compared to 16 last year.

Louis van Gaal will be hoping it continues if he wants to keep his job at Old Trafford.
