It has been revealed that David Moyes was delighted with Wayne Rooney’s performance in Manchester United 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
It was the England international’s first start of the season and Moyes praised the crowd for their response to him.
Moyes said: “I was very pleased with his performance and I was very pleased with the reaction from the crowd.
“I have got to say, I didn’t think it was unexpected. I don’t know how many times I have to say it, he has been great in training.
“I think anyone who looked at him might have seen a slightly leaner-looking Wayne.
“I said to him he might only play 60 minutes but I thought he worked back, he tackled, he chased when we needed it.
“I think Wayne has a positive mind at the moment. I don’t think he needs to change.
“I think his performance tonight said enough. I think his actions tonight showed what he thought.”
