Wayne Rooney has declared that Manchester United can make a statement by beating Arsenal today.
The reigning Premier League champions face Arsenal, trailing the Gunners by eight points and knowing defeat will put them in a precarious position as they look to keep hold of a crown they won by an impressive 11 points last term.
“We always believe,” he said.
“We believe we can go on and win the league.
“We have been in this position before and gone on to win titles so there is no reason why we cannot do it again. We are hitting form at the right time.
“If we can continue that and get to Christmas within touching distance, or maybe even at the top, we will be in a great position.”
