In form striker believes Red Devils has what it takes to lift trophy.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has sounded a battle cry claiming that the club are ready to make the Premier League title race a three-way race, the Daily Express reports.
Manchester United have moved to within eight points of league leaders Chelsea following six successive league victories and the momentum built up under manager Louis van Gaal is fuelling belief they can reach the summit.
And now Rooney believes the side are in a position to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City for the top prize.
“We have to believe we can win the title,” said United and England skipper Rooney, who opened the scoring in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Liverpool.
“It is still early days and we are getting better and better. The results are coming and the gap to the top is only eight points with a lot of games to go. I think Christmas is going to be a very important time for us.
“If we can win our games and the others have one bad result then there is nothing there. We have been here before, but we have a lot of new players and this is where the experience of myself, Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher can rub off on the other players.
“We have to keep winning our games and hopefully get back to the top and you never know. We have shown a great resilience. Some of the games haven’t gone the way we would like, but we are winning them and that is a great quality to have.
“We won the league two years ago and we weren’t great in a lot of those games but we got the results. Sometimes you have to do that.
“I have seen Chelsea a couple of times this season where they have not played great but have nicked as well.
“We need to try and get the performances right and if we do that then we are confident we will win the games. If we can keep winning games and keep good momentum in the team then we are looking stronger with each game.” United watched yesterday’s Champions League draw from the outside, but Rooney said a lack of European football was not necessarily an advantage.
