Wayne Rooney has already set his sights on becoming Manchester United's outright top goalscorer after equalling the record in the 4-0 FA Cup victory over Reading.
The 31-year-old striker joined Sir Bobby Charlton on 249 club goals with his seventh-minute opener in the third round tie against the Royals.
Anthony Martial slotted his sixth goal of the season into the bottom right corner to double the lead eight minutes later before Marcus Rashford's second-half brace sealed a comfortable victory.
Rooney told BT Sport: "It's a proud moment to do so at such a massive club like Manchester United.
"I'm hugely honoured to be able to play for this football club but to be up there in terms of goals with Sir Bobby, it's a really proud moment for me and hopefully I'll be out there on my own soon. But I'll enjoy today because it's a real honour."

Wayne Rooney has equalled Sir Bobby Charlton's all-time Manchester United scoring record after notching his 249th goal in the FA Cup tie with Reading at Old Trafford.
The 31-year-old scored in the seventh minute of his 543rd United appearance to move alongside Charlton having played 215 fewer games than the England great.
Rooney, who joined United from Everton in 2004 and scored a Champions League hat-trick on his debut against Fenerbahce, turned home a fortuitous volley from Juan Mata's cross after Anthony Martial had burst into the box.
The United skipper greeted the landmark with a small fist pump while the PA announcer mentioned his landmark strike to the crowd.
Both Charlton and Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager who brought Rooney to Old Trafford 13 years earlier, were seen smiling inside the ground after the strike.

Wayne Rooney is not expected to face any disciplinary action from the Football Association over his late night during last international break.
Rooney was pictured at The Grove, where the team were based between games against Scotland and Spain, mingling with fellow guests in the early hours following a day off.
Newspaper reports suggest the England captain was drunk and made an unscheduled appearance at a wedding reception, with chief executive Martin Glenn promising an investigation into the conduct of all players and staff during their free time.
Press Association Sport understands that the player's representatives have been in contact with the FA and are assured no disciplinary action will be taken against him.
It is further understood that any suggestions of Gareth Southgate, then interim manager and soon-to-be permanent boss, asking the player to go to bed and being ignored are inaccurate.
Rooney denies entering the wedding reception but was happy to pose for pictures with guests in communal areas of the hotel. While new guidelines around down time are sure to follow when England next link-up in March, FA management are not actively reviewing the behaviour of any players at present.
