​Shakespeare: Rooney impressing at Everton

Everton first team coach Craig Shakespeare says Wayne Rooney has hit a good patch of form as the Toffees continue their recent resurgence.

"I'm very impressed with Wayne," Shakespeare said of the 31-year-old, who scored the winner in Everton's 1-0 victory over Newcastle on Wednesday to take his tally to nine Premier League goals this season.

"We know what his pedigree is about but his goalscoring record of late is very, very good.

"To score the winner, being in the right place at the right time last night, obviously he is in a purple patch but the team as well is performing well."
