Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes that if his side beat Liverpool on Saturday, then that will be the end of the Reds title challenge. United would go ten points clear with a game in hand over Liverpool should that happen.

“We’re in pole position and know if we can beat Liverpool then that’ll more or less end their chances of winning the league,” the striker told MUTV.

“I’m very excited about the game because I grew up as an Everton fan hating Liverpool, that hasn’t changed!” he said.

The word “hating” was removed from the interview soon after being published.

With only twenty-seven points left to play for after this game, United will know a ten point lead would put them within touching distance of an eighteenth league title.

“They know, in coming to Old Trafford, it’s going to be a difficult game for them,” said Rooney.

“They also know they need the three points and I’m sure they’ll be up for it – we certainly will be.”
