Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has insisted that his side's campaign to clinch the Premier League title and progress through the Champions League will be strengthened by having back-to-back matches at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils go up against Norwich City in the league on Saturday before facing Real Madrid for the round-of-16 second leg in Europe on Tuesday.
"When we play away, we finish the game and then are either flying back or getting the train or coach," Rooney told the club's official website. "With home matches, we finish the game and I can be back at my house within 40 minutes or something like that. So that's one big help as well. It's always nice to play at home so to have a few games there back-to-back is good."
The North-West outfit are 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
