Rooney record in United rout, Leicester win at Everton
Wayne Rooney left his footprint on FA Cup third-round day with the first goal in holders Manchester United's 4-0 rout of Championship side Reading on Saturday to draw level with Bobby Charlton as the club's record scorer. His seventh-minute effort took his United tally to 249 since joining the 12-times Cup winners in 2004, but Rooney failed to surpass Charlton's long-standing mark as Anthony Martial and two late goals from Marcus Rashford completed United's comfortable victory at Old Trafford. Premier League champions Leicester City claimed a first away win all season as they beat Everton 2-1 with Ahmed Musa scoring both goals after the hosts had taken the lead. Surprises were in short supply on one of the standout days in the English soccer calendar. The most notable came in south London where League One (third tier) Millwall humbled top-flight Bournemouth 3-0. Tony Pulis's West Bromwich Albion - eighth in the Premier League - were beaten by Championship (second tier) Derby County 2-1 at home while his former club Stoke City lost 2-0 at home to Championship Wolverhampton Wanderers. This year's lowest ranked survivors, seventh-tier Stourbridge, suffered a disappointing end to their journey as they lost 2-1 at League Two Wycombe Wanderers. Lincoln City, who now play in the National League, gave former Cup winners Ipswich Town a fright, twice taking the lead before settling for a 2-2 draw at Portman Road where they were roared on by 5,000 visiting fans. Former England manager Sam Allardyce is still waiting for his first win since taking charge of Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace after his side drew 0-0 at Bolton Wanderers where he spent eight years in charge. In a battle between two managers named by relegation-threatened Premier League clubs this week, Marco Silva began his tenure at bottom side Hull City with a 2-0 victory over Swansea City for whom Paul Clement picked the side for the first time. Two former Cup winners, Sunderland and Southampton, require replays after draws on Saturday. Sunderland were held 0-0 by Premier League rivals Burnley while Southampton were frustrated when Norwich City equalised in stoppage time for a 2-2 draw.
