Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes that their rivalry with Liverpool is still bigger than with their noisy neighbours - Manchester City.
United lock horns with the Citizens on Sunday in a eagerly-anticipated encounter and although Rooney admits that the game has become bigger after City's recent success, the forward still thinks their battles with the Reds attract more attention.
"They're all big games. Obviously United and Liverpool has been a massive game over the years," Rooney told The Mirror.
"City have had their success recently, but I would probably say that United and Liverpool is still the biggest game.
"The English players are more aware of what it (the City game) means after the last four or five years.
"It's a big game and we'll be going there hopefully to win. I've scored a few goals against City and I'm looking forward to the match.
"It's a massive game between two title contenders. It's not going to define the season, but it's a big game, a local derby."
