Rooney Wants To Avoid Humiliation

Wayne Rooney says seeing Chelsea retain the Premiership at Stamford Bridge would be 'devastation' for Manchester United on Saturday.

Rooney was part of the United line-up ordered to form a guard of honour and applaud Chelsea out at Old Trafford by manager Sir Alex Ferguson last May. And the England star still hasn't got over it.

Rooney: 'Obviously, it is difficult for us now. At this moment, we are just looking to finish second and clinch that second automatic Champions League spot.

'But we want to go to Chelsea and win on Saturday because it would be devastating if they were to win the league against us.

'There has been competition for places over the last few months and that is why we have done better.

'We have defended really well as a team and the likes of Louis Saha have come in and done really well for us. Overall, we have made a lot of progress.'
