Arsenal are still in the title race - Rooney

Manchester: Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney does not believe Chelsea and Arsenal should be ruled out the title race just yet. The England striker, 26, believes the Gunners – who the Red Devils will face at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday – have vastly improved over the course of this campaign.

Rooney credits manager Arsene Wenger for their rejuvenation and he believes results like the 8-2 thrashing at Old Trafford are a thing of the past for the London club.

"It wasn't just that one result. It was the way they started the season," he told the club's official website.

"They didn't get the results they needed and a lot of stuff was said about them. But since then, they have gone on a great run and won a lot of games, as any team under Arsene Wenger is capable of doing."

"I certainly wouldn't write them off. They are capable of going on a big run and whilst I still think us, City and Tottenham are the three favourites, Chelsea and Arsenal could still have a big say in it."

Tottenham are two points behind second-placed United while the reigning champions sit three points adrift of league leaders Manchester City. Rooney, who has won four Premier League titles at Old Trafford, said: "Tottenham and City are both new to the challenge of the league.

"In previous years it has been Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all the time. It is great for the league that so many teams can win the league now."
