Rooney hopes to clinch Premier League title with Etihad win

   Apr 4, 5:11 pm

London, Apr 4(ANI): Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney hopes to clinch 20th League title with a win at Etihad Stadium in front of rival Manchester City's fans.

Rooney believes his team is more than good enough to beat City at their home, as they did in their FA Cup clash when they knocked the defending champions out of the FA Cup with a 3-2 win.

United now have a five-point lead over their old foes City with seven games to go, and if both the teams secure same points in their next four league games, United would have a golden chance to retain their title during the much anticipated Manchester derby at Etihad on April30.

"We're certainly good enough to beat them there. We showed that when we beat them 3-2 in the FA Cup in January. They have a great home record in the league but we managed to get the result there in the Cup," The Sun quoted Rooney, as saying.

"That shows we can go there and win. We just have to be ourselves and play our normal football. We'll take full confidence into that game and hopefully we can get the three points," he added.

"We'll approach it as we do any normal game. There are three points up for grabs and we'll be trying to get them. We won't be doing anything different," he said.

However, the Premier League has made it clear there is no chance of United being presented with the trophy at the home of their neighbors, but that will certainly not stop United from trying to inflict a major blow over City by sealing it in front of a packed Etihad. (ANI)
