Wayne Rooney did have the best of games for Manchester United against Arsenal today, and this was not lost on the United faithful on Twitter.
Arsenal soon charged into a 3-0 lead in under 20 minutes in the match. A Mesut Ozil goal sandwiched in between two strikes from Alexis Sanchez.
The captain Rooney could not inspire his United team-mates as they were outplayed at the Emirates Stadium.
Rooney soon become one of the top trends on Twitter. But not for reasons he would have liked. In fact, some even hoped he would get a second yellow card. Here are some of the best reactions:

I'm not going to hammer rooney but a few weeks out of the team then he'll either come back rejuvenated or we'll do better without him.Stretford End 85 (@StretfordEnd85) October 4, 2015
Drop Wayne Rooney for the 72,727th time. I don't care about his captain privileges, he is clearly not good enough.Liam (@OffsideLiam) October 4, 2015
