Manchester United fans joke Jose Mourinho is at the Etihad to scout Wayne Rooney against Manchester City

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho was spotted in attendance at the Etihad as Manchester City drew 1-1 with Everton on Monday night.

The Special One, Mourinho was seen in the moments leading up to kick-off and watched on as United’s bitter rivals looked for a second victory in their opening two matches of the Premier League campaign.


But it was Wayne Rooney who opened the scoring in the 35th minute, just weeks after completing a move away from Old Trafford following 13 years with the Red Devils.

United have flown out of the blocks in the league this season, with consecutive 4-0 wins over West Ham and Swansea, and Rooney’s emotional farewell had almost been forgotten by supporters.

Rooney has impressed since rejoining Everton on a free transfer back in July and and scored the only goal of the game on his second league debut for the Toffees in a 1-0 defeat of Stoke last weekend.

A number of fans thought it strange that Mourinho would chose to watch Everton’s trip to the Etihad – especially when Luke Shaw and Ashley Young were making their long-awaited returns for the United’s Under-23 side down the road.

However, many joked the Portuguese was at the stadium to keep an eye on goalscorer Rooney.

Rooney looked to be the match-winner until Raheem Sterling popped up with an equaliser in the 82nd minute and the points were shared.
