Wayne Rooney thinks Manchester United will win the Premier League

United currently sit top of the table and two points clear of their local rivals Manchester City, but they've played a game more.

Derby manager Rooney, who is United's record goalscorer, feels some shrewd recent business in the transfer market is now starting to pay off.

"The last few years, Manchester United haven't been ready to challenge for the title, but now they've brought in players like Fernandes and Cavani - players with a winning mentality - that has helped massively," he said ahead of Derby's match against QPR this weekend.

"And now the squad is challenging for a Premier League title. I said to the coaches in the office here six weeks ago that I thought Manchester United will win the League. I still feel that today.
