United skipper Rooney has not scored for 10 Premier League games, a 864-minute drought stretching back to April 4 last season at Aston Villa.

“He scored against Bruges,” said van Gaal.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s the Premier League or the Champions League.

“I was very happy when we scored more goals, and it doesn’t matter to me who is scoring.

“But we have to score more. When you are so dominant as we are, in all the matches, we have to win these games.

“Wayne has a range of scoring goals, like Juan Mata, Memphis, Anthony Martial and Marouane Fellaini. You can count all the goals he’s made.

“To my memory, Rooney has scored a lot. He’s nearly the record holder in the club, so I hope he will beat that record, but I have to wait and see, like you do.”
