EPL: Wayne Rooney scores twice in Manchester United's 4-1 win over Aston Villa

Rooney headed United level in the 20th minute, and the striker netted his 16th of the season for the struggling champions from the penalty spot before halftime.

Manchester, England: Wayne Rooney scored twice as Manchester United came from behind to beat Aston Villa 4-1 in the Premier League on Saturday as fans came out in support of struggling manager David Moyes at Old Trafford.

It looked like being another miserable day for Moyes when Ashley Westwood put Villa in front from a 13th-minute free kick.

But Rooney headed United level seven minutes later, and the striker netted his 16th of the season for the struggling champions from the penalty spot before halftime.

The lead was extended in the 57th when Juan Mata scored his first United goal since joining from Chelsea in January for 37.1 million pounds (then $61 million), and substitute Javier Hernandez wrapped up the victory in stoppage time.
