It only took four matches, but Wayne Rooney finally scored his first goal of the Premier League season. With Manchester United ahead of Crystal Palace, 1-0, Rooney served up a beautiful, bending free kick in the 81st minute which got past the outstretched arms of the keeper. Maybe Rooney is back in form. Or maybe it has something to do with the power of the headband he was sporting today after getting involved in a horrible collision with teammate Phil Jones during a training session last Saturday.

Man U went on to defeat Crystal Palace at Old Trafford earlier today, 2-0.
