SPOOF: Manchester United release 2013/14 team photo - apt?

Manchester United Old Trafford

A photograph, no doubt shopped by Arsenal, Chelsea or Liverpool fans, has garnered much interest on social media…

The stick used to beat Tottenham Hotspur with by zealous supporters of rival clubs last season - that the White Hart Lane club were a one-man team thanks to the consistent presence of difference-maker Gareth Bale - has been maintained this season, albeit used on an alternative victim, as Manchester United have now incurred the wrath of one-man team abuse.

According to the latest Premier League statistics for the current season, tireless forward Wayne Rooney's return of eight goals and five assists in 1,015 minutes (one every 78 mins) accounts for an astonishing 59% of Manchester United's goals.

The following photograph has therefore been circulated throughout social media and has proven popular with the rival fans of the reigning title holders United.
