Wayne Rooney believes that November and December will be key months for Manchester United as they look to climb the table.

The Red Devils moved up to fifth place in the Premier League table thanks to a 1-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday as they closed the gap on the leaders to five points.

United have made a stuttering start to their title defence following David Moyes’ arrival at the club after Sir Alex Ferguson’s decision to retire.

But Rooney insists that it was always going to take time for Moyes to implement his ideas at Old Trafford and is now backing United to work their way up the table.

“We’ve played better in the last few games than we have all season and it was always going to be the case with a new manager coming in, that we’re taking his ideas onto the pitch,” Rooney told United’s website.

“We’re finally finding our feet now and putting into the games exactly what the manager wants us to.

“I’m really pleased with that and we’re on a good run at the minute and I think November and December are two really big months for us.

“We’ve got a lot of games coming up and we want to get through these two months with some good results.”
