Wayne Rooney says it was a “special moment” to score the winning goal on his top-flight return to Everton after 13 years and one he has been looking forward to for a long time.

The 31-year-old, who left the club for Manchester United in 2004, headed in his 199th Premier League goal as the Toffees beat Stoke 1-0 at Goodison Park.

Rooney said a lot of “relief and emotion” came out as he celebrated what proved to be the decider before half-time.
