Wayne Rooney scored his 200th Premier League goal, and fittingly, it came against Manchester City.

The former Manchester United star opened the scoring Monday at the Etihad to give Everton a 1-0 first-half advantage.

Less than a minute after David Silva rung the post following a pressure-packed spell of play, Mason Holgate and Dominic Calvert-Lewin combined to find England’s all-time leading scorer streaking into the area.

1 Alan Shearer 260
2 Wayne Rooney 200
3 Andy Cole 187
4 Frank Lampard 177
5 Thierry Henry 175

Rooney, 31, became just the second player in Premier League history with 200 or more goals, joining former Newcastle United star Alan Shearer.
