Wayne Rooney will do all he can to ensure Manchester United fans have bragging rights over Manchester City at the weekend.

Premier League champions City have won four successive Manchester derbies, with Sergio Aguero scoring the only goal of the game in November’s encounter.

Rooney, however, is fully confident that he and his team-mates can secure a win against Manuel Pellegrini’s side, who are on a bad run of form.

“We want to give United fans something to smile about when they go to work on Monday morning, we want them to be the ones to be able to give out the banter to Manchester City fans at work,” the 29-year-old told MUTV

“I think it’s a very important game for Manchester United and Manchester City…for the fans and, for me, it’s a massive game of pride.”
