Wayne Rooney goes in search of his 100th United goal against Burnley tonight, something he thinks he should have achieved against Birmingham at the weekend.

He is also hoping United can make it four in a row this season with him playing in his favourite position.

“It could have been 100 against Birmingham,” said Rooney. “I had some great chances which I missed, but their keeper also made some good saves. I’m enjoying my football right now and thankfully the manager has come out and said he’ll play me up front all season. So I’m really looking forward to that. We want to prove to everyone that we’re worthy champions and that we can win the Premier League again this season.”
