Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes that the club can still win the Premier League title this season.

Wayne Rooney has insisted that Manchester United can still win the Premier League title this season.

The defending champions sit eighth in the table ahead of this afternoon's matches in the top flight, eight points behind league leaders Arsenal, whom they play tomorrow.

The England striker told Sky Sports News: "We always believe. 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.

"We are starting to adjust to the training and the new ideas from the manager. We are playing a bit better and have been getting good results. Overall, we are in a good place. I am sure if we can win on Sunday it will make us even stronger and give us that belief that we can go on."

United have not lost in their last four Premier League matches.
