Alan Shearer v Wayne Rooney: Tale of the Tape

Wayne Rooney has joined Alan Shearer as the second player to reach 200 Premier League goals.

Shearer became the first to reach the milestone in 2002, sixth months before Rooney opened his top-flight account.

The former Newcastle striker congratulated Rooney on Twitter, stating "it's been lonely in this Premier League 200 club".

Press Association Sport's Edd Evans compares the iconic strikers' careers.
