Wayne Rooney: I hate Liverpool

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, who grew up in the city of Liverpool as an Everton supporter, claims there is nothing would give him greater pleasure than killing off Liverpool's lingering title hopes with victory at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The clash is always a massive fixture but more so with the destiny of the Premier League crown still just in the balance.

With only 11 matches left in the league, the champions are seven points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea, with a game in hand over both.

Victory for the Red Devils would put them ten points clear of the Kop and finally extinguish any lingering hopes of a league title.

That is why Rooney admits he would like nothing better than to put them to the sword and take United another step towards an incredible haul of five trophies in a season.

He told MUTV: "I’m very excited about the match.

"I grew up an Everton fan, my whole family are Everton fans and I grew up hating Liverpool. And that hasn’t changed.

"Liverpool have been brilliant and put up a good challenge, but it will be great if on Saturday we can finally finish that challenge off.

"For me, it is our biggest game of the season. If we can beat Liverpool it will almost certainly put them out of the title race.

"For everyone at United, especially myself, that would be a great feeling."
