Rooney however feels that United are ready to finish off the season strongly and that they are now starting to show their true quality.

"I think we had some poor results at the start of the season but we are starting to show some real quality,” Rooney told Sky Sports after the Boxind Day result.

"In the last few weeks we are having a go. We are working hard, we are fighting for each other and we are ready for the challenge.”

"Hopefully, we can surprise a few people."

"The ball's bounced nicely for me and I've had a go.”

"It was a good goal for us at a good time of the game," the striker concluded.
