Wayne Rooney Scores Incredible Free-Kick For DC United

United have posted back-to-back shutouts for the first time this season and has three in the past four games.

This is not the first time he stole the limelight for DC United.

José Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge today, as Manchester United take on Chelsea in what feels like yet another final test for the manager.

The other match on the night saw the Seattle Sounders ride two early goals to a 2-1 playoff-clinching win over Orlando City.

So, how would be best for Mourinho psyche up his players before the big clash?

Manchester United return to Premier League action against Chelsea on Saturday in arguably their toughest game of the season so far.

Nonetheless, Mourinho has been no stranger to criticising his own team and again appeared to damn his players with faint praise when asked why they have been unable to replicate the second-half performance against Newcastle over 90 minutes.

Today, meanwhile, is 16 years since Rooney scored his first of 208 Premier League goals when he netted a 90th minute worldie victor past David Seaman at Goodison Park.

'We are talking about a coach who has won everything and won everywhere, ' said the Chelsea manager. "The key is for the players to be able to do it".

But I think, also, that you all have to respect him.

"The likes of Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, myself - players who had Man United in them and wanted the best for that club - would never allow anyone to mess that up".

"And this season, it's still in the beginning of course, but if he is the best player in the Premier League until now, which I think he is, Chelsea is top of the league now because he is the kind of player that can make a huge difference". "Chelsea is led by intelligent and experienced people and they would never sell Eden to Man United", he said.
