Rooney explains why Mkhitaryan will succeed at Arsenal

Rooney explains why Mkhitaryan will succeed at Arsenal

After making headlines by taking a dig at Liverpool and former England defender Jamie Carragher on his Sky Sports' Monday Night Football programme debut, Everton striker Wayne Rooney had nothing but praise for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The first in 2010 was over a contract extension, and it nearly saw the player leave Old Trafford, with rivals Manchester City heavily linked with a move for him at the time.

"I really think he is the flawless player for Manchester United", the Everton striker told Sky Sports.

"We needed to show the character of the team and to react in front of our fans in order to go back to the winning path".

Tevez won the Premier League with Manchester United on two occasions, as well as the Champions League, during his two seasons at United.

"He's got aggression, he's got passion, desire". And you can see he is a victor.

'I saw it in training with him - he's a very talented player. Sanchez will do that, they're the players you want because they lift other players and give them an extra five per cent.

But when asked if Liverpool's front three could ever match United's, Rooney aimed a dig at the Anfield trio: 'I think it would be hard. I have been involved in football my whole life. He was incredible. He knew how to get a reaction out of me.

New United teammate Alexis Sanchez scored his first goal for the Red Devils in the second half after missing a spot-kick following Romelu Lukaku's opener.

"There was a lot talk when he signed that we wouldn't be able to play together". It must have been awful for defenders to have faced us, because we were just in their faces.
