Manchester United equalled the record number of English league titles last season, which had been held by Liverpool since 1990.

Currently at the top of the table, Wayne Rooney has claimed that it would be a massive achievement to win the title again this season.

“I’ve always felt the league is the most important one to win, but especially this year,” said Rooney. “If we do that it will be four on the run, which no one has done before. And we would go above Liverpool’s number of titles so to do it this year would be a big, big moment for everyone at the club.”
