Rooney explains why Mkhitaryan will succeed at Arsenal

Everton striker, Wayne Rooney, believes Liverpool's Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino come no where near ex-United trio of himself, Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez.

Rooney played as United were beaten by Guardiola's great Barcelona side in the 2009 and 2011 Champions League finals - scoring in the latter defeat at Wembley - and he grudgingly concedes his old rivals are a pleasure to watch. At Juventus he had (Andrea) Pirlo alongside him and I think with Nemanja Matic and one other it will suit him better in a three.

"He went mad, but I had a go back". He's got aggression, passion, desire and you can see he's a victor - I think that's what United have lacked.

The former Manchester United forward was part of and scored in the only match at the Etihad to have seen City drop points this season, a 1-1 draw between the Blues and Everton back in August.

"And at Arsenal he'll have players round him running off the ball, taking the ball and he'll create goals and score goals".

He said: "For me, Sanchez is the flawless player for Manchester United".

"In terms of catching Manchester City, they certainly won't this season, but, if I am being perfectly honest, it will be hard to catch them next season", Rooney said. I have been involved in football my whole life.

"They are very risky", Rooney told Sky Sports on Monday. That is something I know. "People said we couldn't play together but we hit it off, played well together and I really enjoyed it".

"I remember my first away trip, and I had a huge argument with Roy Keane", he said on Sky Sports.

Rooney also spoke about some of Ferguson's team-talks, a facet of his management Roy Keane complimented.
