Wayne Rooney scored his 200th Premier League goal on Monday night when he netted for Everton in their 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

The 31-year-old became only the second player to reach the milestone after Alan Shearer, who is the competition's top scorer, with 260 goals.

Rooney's landmark came at the start of his second spell at boyhood club Everton, for whom he made his debut at the age of 16. He was 16 years and 360 days old when he netted his first Premier League goal in October 2002 to help Everton beat Arsenal, making him the youngest Premier League goal scorer at the time.

The forward left Goodison Park for Manchester United in 2004 for £25 million, the highest fee paid for a teenager at the time. During his 13 years at Old Trafford, he won five Premier League titles, three League Cups, one FA Cup, one Champions League, one Europa League and one FIFA Club World Cup before returning to Everton.

Here are the key numbers, facts and stats around Rooney's 200 Premier League goals.
