Manchester United legend and Derby County boss Wayne Rooney believes his old club are going to win the premier league title this season.
The Red Devils are two points clear at the top with 19 games played.
Rooney helped United win their last top-flight title in the 2012/13 campaign – and expects his former club to repeat that feat this year.
“The last few years, Manchester United haven’t been ready to challenge for the title, but now they’ve brought in players like [Bruno] Fernandes and [Edinson] Cavani – players with a winning mentality – that has helped massively.
“And now the squad is challenging for a Premier League title. I said to the coaches in the office here six weeks ago that I thought Manchester United will win the League. I still feel that today.
“Paul Pogba will have a massive part to play in that. Those players that have been brought in with winning mentalities will relieve some of the pressure from Paul a bit, and he can now show his quality on the pitch.”
