At the weekend, we will play Arsenal for the third time in as many weeks and will hope for a repeat result. After beating them 1-0 at home, then 3-1 away, United certainly have to go in the game the more confident of the two. Just one point would see us crowned Champions though, for the third season in a row, and it certainly would be nice to achieve that in front of our former title rivals.
Wayne Rooney feels exactly the same way!
“One point will win the title for us. Hopefully that can come on Saturday,” said Rooney. “It would be brilliant to do it in front of our own fans and brilliant to win it against Arsenal, who are a great footballing team. When they come to Old Trafford you always hear them singing about winning the title at Old Trafford, so it would be nice to win against them. That would be special. We want to win it in front of our own fans, I think the manager’s said we’ve only done that once in 17 years. And to win it three years on the run would be amazing.”
