Manchester United captain looked devastated not to be on the pitch at Old Trafford.

Manchester United's club captain had to watch on from the director's box as the Red Devils beat his former club.

United defeated Everton 2-1, thanks to goals from summer signings Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao.

Rooney was sent off in the win against West Ham, and was serving the first match in a three-game suspension.

He will miss games against West Brom and Chelsea later in October, with the international break meaning he will not feature for his club until November.

Watching on from the executive boxes at Old Trafford, Rooney looked frustrated not to be out on the field, and predictably on edge during a nail biting game.

He has previously stated he hates watching games, preferring to be out there influencing them, and this is one month you can be sure Rooney hopes will hurry up, despite the upcoming England matches.
