The Old Trafford crowd erupted after Rooney scored a late winner today, but it was not from captain Wayne.

During the lap of honour after United's final home game of the season, Rooney, who was not playing in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal because of a dead leg, let his young son Klay, who turns two on Thursday, strike small ball into the goal, much to the delight of the Stretford End (watch below).

Injured Rooney had watched the match with his Klay, plus his other son Kai, from a box in Old Trafford.

In the match, United and Arsenal battled to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday to leave the Londoners ahead in the race to qualify directly for next season's Champions League group stage without having to face a playoff.

Ander Herrera volleyed United ahead after 30 minutes with Arsenal equalising in the 82nd minute when Theo Walcott's shot deflected off Tyler Blackett and flew past Victor Valdes for an own goal.

Valdes was only seven minutes into his first United appearance after replacing the injured David De Gea.

The result lifted Arsenal on to 71 points with two matches to play with United on 69 with one game to go.


Arsenal can still catch Manchester City and finish second, while United can still catch Arsenal and finish third with the top three places securing a group stage place in the Champions League next season.
