Wayne Rooney has backed his former club Manchester United to win the Premier League this season and hailed Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani for bringing a ‘winning mentality’ to Old Trafford.

The Derby County manager told Sky Sports: ‘In the last few years Manchester United haven’t been ready to challenge for the title. But now they’ve built a strong of players.

‘[Bruno] Fernandes coming in has helped massively. [Edinson] Cavani, with that winning mentality, has helped massively. Now the squad is challenging for a Premier League title.
