Hooligan's Daily: Rooney breaks Manchester United goal record, Balotelli abused again

Yesterday's Scores
Premier League
Liverpool 2-3 Swansea
(Firmino 55', 69')-(Llorente 48', 52', Sigurdsson 74')

AFC Bournemouth 2-2 Watford
(King 48', Afobe 82')-(Kabasele 24', Deeney 64')

Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton

Middlesbrough 1-3 West Ham
(Stuani 27')-(Carroll 9', 43', Calleri 90+4')

Stoke City 1-1 Manchester United
(Mata OG 19')-(Rooney 90+4')

Wayne Rooney's late equalizer not only salvaged a road point for United, but it also was his 250th for the club, which breaks Sir Bobby Charlton's club record. It was a glorious strike. He took a free kick from the left side of goal and blasted it into the top corner from a tough angle. Charlton himself would surely be proud to have his record surpassed on such a majestic free kick.

West Bromwich Albion 2-0 Sunderland
(Fletcher 30', Brunt 36')

Manchester City 2-2 Tottenham
(Sane 49', De Bruyne 64')-(Alli 58', Son 77') 

Tottenham will take this point, mostly because they are truly fortunate to have it. Shortly before the Son equalizer, Raheem Sterling was pushed in the box on a breakaway. It should have been a penalty and red card for Kyle Walker, but Sterling did not go down on the play, causing Andre Marriner to ignore the infraction and wave play on. Sterling did get a shot off, but it was square into Hugo Lloris. Son scored seconds later to equalize and earn a share of the points.

Headlines
Nice's Mario Balotelli has brought up a complaint with Ligue 1 alleging he was racially harassed by Bastia fans during Friday's night's 1-1 draw. The complaint, which will be investigated by the league, claims Balotelli was the subject of monkey imitations by the home supporters. Balotelli has been the subject of racist fans before. Most recently, in 2013 a match between AC Milan and AS Roma was halted due to the racial abuse from Roma supporters aimed at Balotelli. Batista fans are also no stranger to punishments from racism. They were docked two points in the 2007-08 season for racially abusing Boubacar Kebe before a Ligue 2 match.
