Wayne Rooney: Man United must build on Arsenal point ahead of massive games
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney wants the Red Devils to kick-on after their valiant point at The Emirates
Wayne Rooney has urged Manchester United to build on a good point at Arsenal as the Red Devils look to reignite their top-four bid.
The Red Devils remained in seventh place and fell 11 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool after United held title-chasing Arsenal to a goalless draw at Emirates Stadium.
You have to take confidence from it. We’ve been stop-start for most of the season, but we hope we can build on this
And Rooney, who has scored nine Premier League goals this season, hopes the stalemate can give United confidence ahead of crucial games in the Champions League and English top-flight.
“We’ve got a lot of massive games in the Champions League and the league. We’re all looking forward to them,” Rooney told United’s website.
“I thought we did alright [on Wednesday]. It was a decent point. Arsenal are obviously a good team but we defended really well and maybe could have nicked it with the couple of chances we had.
“Coming to Arsenal any time and getting a point is always a good result. You have to take confidence from it. We’ve been stop-start for most of the season, but we hope we can build on this.
“We have a bit of a break before our next game now and hopefully we can prepare well and kick on for the big matches coming up.”
