Wayne Rooney says the Manchester United squad have belief the title is possible
Wayne Rooney believes Manchester United can overtake Chelsea and win the Premier League title.
The Red Devils are eight points behind the Premier League leaders after United were 3-0 winners against bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.
We have to keep winning our games and hopefully get back to the top and you never know
And United captain Rooney is adamant that Louis van Gaal’s side are capable of being crowned Premier League champions this season.
“I think we have to believe we can win the title,” Rooney said. “We are eight points behind and coming into a busy period.
“If we can win our games and the others have one bad result then there is nothing there.
“We have to keep winning our games and hopefully get back to the top and you never know.
“We won the league two years ago and we weren’t great in a lot of those games but we got the results.
“We have shown a great resilience this season. Some of the games haven’t gone the way we would like but we are winning them and that is a great quality to have.
“We have been here before but we have a lot of new players and this is where the experience of myself, Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher can rub off on the other players.”
