It's unbelievable to think that it's over 10 years ago that a 16-year-old called Wayne Rooney announced himself to the Premier League with a wonder goal against Arsenal, while still playing for Everton. Now firmly established as a world-class player, the England international has won almost everything in a Manchester United shirt. Arsène Wenger's defence will have to be alert to deal with the frontman on Saturday lunchtime.
