Rooney reaches century of assists at Swansea

7 Nov 2016
Swansea City v Manchester United - Premier League

Man Utd captain only third player to reach century of assists and another legend is in his sights

On a Sunday when Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted the Premier League’s 25,000th goal, the provider of his two goals also made history.

Wayne Rooney's two assists for Ibrahimovic as Manchester United won 3-1 at Swansea City took his total Premier League tally of assists to 100.

He is only the third man in the competition’s history to hit three figures for assists, and now lies just two behind Frank Lampard.

He can edge nearer to Lampard in his next match, against Arsenal on 12 November, an opponent he has assisted against four times already, as well as scoring 11 goals in total.  

Rooney still has some way to catch the player with the most Premier League assists. Former Man Utd team-mate Ryan Giggs set up 162 goals in his 632 appearances.
