Wayne Rooney has admitted Manchester United need to start turning draws into victories after a 2-2 stalemate with Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The 28-year-old drew the Red Devils level on two occasions in north London on Sunday after Kyle Walker and Paulinho had put the hosts ahead either side of half-time.

However, Arsenal’s 3-0 win at Cardiff, who drew 2-2 with United last weekend, means the reigning champions are nine points behind the leaders.

And Rooney recognised the Red Devils could ill-afford to fall any further behind their title rivals if United want to retain their top-flight crown.

“We’re on a good run in the minute but we need to turn some of those drawns into wins,” Rooney said.

“Today it was a difficult game, Tottenham away. A point is probably a good result, a good point.

“But it’s the other games where we need to turn those one points into three and it would make a massive difference for us.”
