Wayne Rooney says that Manchester United deservedly earned maximum points against Stoke City on Saturday.

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has said that he is pleased with his side's performance against Stoke City at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The 26-year-old scored twice and also netted an own goal as the Red Devils came from a goal down to win the Premier League clash 4-2.

"It was my first own goal but thankfully we came back from that and managed to go in at the break in the lead, that was great for us," he told MUTV. "I think it was a good performance from us. Stoke put a lot of high balls into the box and in the main we dealt with it well.

"There was just that one slip when I've scored the own goal. I was marking Ryan Shawcross and he ran me in there, there were bodies in the way and it (Charlie Adam's free kick) just hit me.

"I think it was important that I moved on from it quickly and didn't let it affect the rest of my game. I think overall we deserved the three points."

United are currently second in the Premier League table with 18 points from eight matches, four points behind leaders Chelsea.
