Everton star Rooney out to prove himself against Man Utd

Everton star Rooney out to prove himself against Man Utd”

Manchester United defender, Daley Blind believes his new teammate Romelu Lukaku can fire Manchester United to his first league title in five years after joining the Red Devils this summer in a deal worth £75 million from Everton.

"I think Wayne spent probably 10 years of his career in a different Premier League than you have now, a Premier League where it was easier to score goals", the United boss told reporters ahead of a reunion with Rooney on Sunday.

"It is used too easily, but he deserves that title".

"He's a real legend of the club".

"I don't think any further than that".

"I'm sure he'll be looking forward to it and the United fans will be looking forward to seeing how he does as well, hoping he doesn't score and Wayne the opposite, hoping he does score".

United's home date with Everton is the last match to be played in the latest round of Premier League fixtures, but they can still end the weekend in top spot with a convincing victory over Rooney and the visiting Toffees.

Mourinho is aware of the potential that Lukaku's firepower brings, but he also believes that United have shown an all-round improvement on last season when his side failed to challenge at the top of the Premier League and eventually finished sixth. "We made mistakes, the pitch wasn't the best either, but it was the same for them", said the Dutchman.

"What I did with Marouane is what I do normally with every player", he said.

Asked whether Rooney had benefited from his move to Everton, Mourinho shut the conversation down, replying: "I'm going to have to interrupt that question".

"He's playing well, there's a good relation with the way our striker and the way the team plays, and I'm happy with that relation between the striker and the team".

"The way the team plays, they have to".

Mourinho will be without Paul Pogba against Everton after the midfielder was ruled out with a hamstring injury with Marouane Fellaini one of those in line to take his place.

"In England, the Premier League is the thing I am missing, so maybe [we can win], that's what we fight for", he added. "He started the season really well, we've had one match per week we've been going with the same players".

"Herrera, Fellaini, Carrick, they are waiting - they are waiting for a chance to start matches and to play matches from the beginning".

"Squads are (there) to try to cope with these kind of situations and we know that for a few matches - I don't know how many, I really can not tell you how many I expect - but we are going to play without Pogba a few matches".
