Wayne Rooney thinks Manchester United will win the Premier League

Wayne Rooney thinks Manchester United will win the Premier League”

He was particularly vocal after the goalless draw against Liverpool this month, taking responsibility for squandering a late chance that would have given United a precious win at Anfield.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his Manchester United players that they are going to have to do it the hard way like the 1999 treble winners if they want to win the FA Cup this season.

The focus is now on the FA Cup.

Arsenal, Chelsea twice and Wolves twice are among United's previous FA Cup opponents since Solskjaer took charge while his side failed to get out of a tough Champions League group this season comprising Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir and, in 2018/19, faced PSG and Barcelona in the knockout stages. Yes, [Virgil] van Dijk is not there but everyone's got an injury or two here or there.

"I never get an easy cup run!"

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

'It's the first time in a few years where you can see Manchester United feel they can win this league and I believe they can, ' said Rooney. We went forward too quickly.

"They're eager [to get in behind the defence], of course, but it's also a way we want to attack quickly", he explained. We didn't go out there to drop deep and try to soak up the pressure. "I used to play in a decent team and the gaffer had at least four centre-forwards to choose from".

"These plans have been made with the cooperation of our broadcast partners, working with us to deliver these additional matches while stadiums are missing the supporters who are such an integral part of the game". There has been much talk of the resurgence of Luke Shaw at left back recently but his fellow full back is playing just as well at the moment.

Their form has turned for the better and while no one really expects them to win the league, they've found themselves involved in a title race nonetheless. We kept giving it away. You know he's got the quality.
