Manchester United slipped to defeat against West Ham last night, with Anthony Martial's brace going unrewarded.
Martial has established himself as United's biggest goal threat this season, and Marcus Rashford's emergence has even shunted Wayne Rooney down to third.
The England international has found himself moved into midfield to accommodate the duo, and the team have not suffered for the experiment, until the fateful match at the Boleyn.
United needed a win to climb above rivals Manchester City into fourth spot, but blew their chance by conceding two late goals to slip to a 3-2 loss.
Rooney was not even a factor in front of goal, failing to register a shot on target, and even more frustratingly, did not create a single chance either.
He battled hard, winning nine personal duels, but United fans want to see him utilise his quality on the ball, rather than see him wasted.

Here is a look at how fans reacted to Rooney's display...
Sorry but Rooney can go with Van Gaal. On the decline & not a captain #MUFC— Fakhar. (@SyedFakhaar) May 10, 2016
As long Rooney play in midfield expect more pain than joy #MUFC— nkululeko ndlovu (@nkulule19694782) May 10, 2016
Rooney gets some unfair criticism at times, but the fact that he is being paid £300,000 a week is an embarrassment. #MUFC— Daniel Scuffil (@DanielScuffil) May 10, 2016
That team has absolutely zero leaders. Rooney as captain simply wasn't good enough #MUFC— Jordan Gallagher (@jordangall11) May 10, 2016
Martial's brilliance almost bailed us out. Rooney did ok. But the rest were just pathetic. #mufc— Pangeran (@pangeransiahaan) May 10, 2016
