Wayne Rooney scored the 200th Premier League goal of his career on Monday, when he struck for Everton in opposition to Manchester City, in their 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.


Rooney met Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s pass with his left foot and sent it via the legs of City goalkeeper Ederson in the 35th minute.


It was his second league goal since he returned to Everton after 13 years at Manchester United, where he netteed 183 times. He scored 15 in his first stint with Everton from 2002-2004.


He has now become just the second player to accomplish the feat after Alan Shearer, who finished his career with 260 goals in the Premier League, which began under its current format in 1992.


Rooney is also the all-time England goal-scorer with 53 for the national team.
