Rooney scored a 94th-minute equaliser last night, January 21, against Stoke City and thus surpassed legendary Sir Bobby Charlton's tally of 249 goals. Manchester United, in the process, picked up a point from the game.

The game week started with Swansea's fascinating win over giants Liverpool. The relegation-threatened side who have already changed two managers took a 2-0 lead initially but Liverpool's Roberto Firmino responded fast to equalise.

At the end, Swansea scored a late goal to salvage 3 vital points and some much-needed oxygen.

The headlining game featured Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. After back to back failures, Pep Guardiola was under a lot of pressure which was eased out initially as City scored 2 goals.

But Mauricio Pochettino's men equalised soon and piled up the pressure on the Spaniard even more.

On Sunday, January 22, Chelsea and Arsenal both picked up wins. A last-gasp goal from Alexis Sanchez sealed the Gunners' win and pushed them up to second position in the league table.
