Everton captain Wayne Rooney today proved that class is permanent, as his penalty earned the Toffee’s a point at Anfield.

Everton were sturggling at 1-0 down before the England record goal-scorer found the net with a cool penalty, making this Rooney’s fifth goal in his last six starts versus Liverpool.

The point means that Everton remain undefeated under new manager Sam Allardyce, and fans were quick to head to twitter to praise the veteran striker.

Here are a few of the best reactions from Everton fans:

Rooney’s antics even caught the eye of another set of fans, who had their own derby to worry about!

Manchester United fans must have been thankful for their club record goal-scorer to find the net against Liverpool, and ultimately cost them two important Premier League points.

Rooney himself also admitted that ‘It’s always nice to score against Liverpool’ in a post-match interview.

Everton are now climbing the table following thei abysmal start to the campaign, and will need Rooney to continue leading by example if they are to make for another push for European football.
