Man Utd 2-goal hero Rooney: Van Persie getting better all the time
Rooney's partnership with Van Persie looks as though it might pay big dividends over the coming months, with both men equally adept at moving wide and creating a chance for others, as the Dutchman did.
"We are getting more of an understanding," said Rooney.
"That is the first game we have started together up front and we have both scored. I am sure it will get better."
