Wayne Rooney is no stranger to breaking records.
The Everton star is both Manchester United and England’s all-time top scorer, with 253 goals for the Red Devils and 53 for the national team.
However, after the Blues’ 3-1 win over Swansea last night, the 32-year-old is closing on another milestone – although it’s not one he’ll want.
Rooney’s first half penalty was pushed onto the post by Swans ‘keeper Lukasz Fabianski before Dominic Calvert-Lewin slotted in the rebound.
It was his 10th failure from the spot in 32 attempts in the top flight, reports the Liverpool Echo .
Only Alan Shearer, with 11 of his 67 efforts, has missed more time from 12 yards in the Premier League.
But on a more positive note, Rooney’s second half penalty last night – which he scored emphatically – was his 10th goal in 16 Premier League games this season, beating his tallies for both the previous two campaigns at Manchester United.
And his assist earlier in the game took him on to 103 in the Premier League – surpassing the total accrued by former Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard.
Rooney stands third in the all-time list with Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas next in his sights on 110.
However, he will have to go some to catch the leading creator in the Premier League era, former Manchester United team-mate Ryan Giggs leading the way on 162.
