Wayne Rooney has warned Manchester United that Norwich City will look to get in their faces at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The 28-year-old striker masterminded his side’s comeback in a 3-2 victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium on Boxing Day.

I’m sure they’ll come out running and trying to get in our faces

And Rooney, who has scored nine goals and made nine assists this season, is relishing a different test against the Canaries.

“Hull play a different system here (at the KC Stadium) but we managed to get a hold of the game,” Rooney told MUTV. “Saturday’s match will be different to what we faced today and Norwich will be different as well.

“It’s always a good atmosphere at Carrow Road and I’m sure they’ll come out running and trying to get in our faces, but we have to show our quality and hopefully that will win us the game.”

Rooney talked up the perks of having a winter break despite their entertaining win against the Tigers.

“Two days after a game we are normally in the pool and in the gym, recovering from the last game,” Rooney added.

“Obviously it’s a bit different at this time of year.

“I still think that in England there should be a winter break, I think that would benefit everyone but we have to get on with it, we’re professionals and we’re looking forward to it – another big game.”
