Gerard Houllier claimed an ‘awesome’ Wayne Rooney can propel Manchester United towards the Premier League title after his two goals inspired the leaders to victory against Aston Villa.

Rooney had scored just three goals all season for United prior to Villa’s visit to Old Trafford, but two first-half strikes set Sir Alex Ferguson’s team on course for the win which consolidated their five-point lead at the top of table.

And Aston Villa manager Houllier believes that, with Rooney rediscovering his form in front of goal, unbeaten Manchester United will now go from strength to strength.

“Rooney and Ryan Giggs were absolutely awesome.” Houllier said. “Rooney made a real difference and he was really at the top of his game.

“United have put themselves in their position without Rooney [scoring goals] for a lot of the season, but now they have him scoring as well.

“When you can press the red button on television and follow a player, kids should follow Rooney because, when you see him play like he did tonight, he has everything.”
