Wayne Rooney believes the trip Anfield to face Liverpool is the most difficult test Manchester United will face in the Premier League.

The England striker, whose will side travel to Merseyside to take on their arch rivals after the international break, says Kenny Dalglish’s men look to be on their way to securing a top-four finish this season.

And the 25-year-old is wary of the threat posed by The Reds ahead of the crunch Premier League clash later this month.

“I think they’ve made some good signings,” Rooney told Sky Sports. “Obviously with not qualifying for the Champions League last season I think they’ll be desperate to get back into that.”

He added: “Liverpool is always the toughest place to go and win a game.

“They’ll be pushing to get into the top four and with the signings they’ve got they’re capable of doing that. We’ll have to be aware of them and try and beat them.”

Rooney, who made his Premier League debut for Everton aged 16 in 2002, admits clashes against Liverpool always have an added edge for him due to his connections with Goodison Park.

“Of course, all my family are massive Everton fans and to beat Liverpool is always a great feeling and a great day,” he added. “It’s a big game for United with the rivalry but for myself it’s a massive game.”
