Rooney remains focussed

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has stated that there is still plenty of work to do if the club are to claim a twentieth league title.

Rooney, who opened the scoring in England’s 2-1 win over Brazil on Wednesday evening, told ESPN of his bafflement to why United aren’t killing teams off.

The Red Devils have gone behind in twelve of their twenty-four league games this season, yet sit nine points clear of second place Manchester City.

They will hope to at least maintain that advantage as they take on Everton on Sunday, with memories of the 4-4 draw with the Toffee’s last April surely still fresh in the memory.

Elsewhere, Leicester City’s Jeff Schlupp’s trial at the club has been extended to a third week, with a move for the player looking increasingly likely.

The 20 year old, who can play at left-back or as a forward, has one full international cap for Ghana despite representing Germany at Under 19’s level.

Meanwhile, following reports the long-time Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski looks set to join Bayern Munich, Dortmund have reportedly line up a familiar name to replace the Polish international.

Mame Biram Diouf, currently plying his trade at Hannover 96 in the Bundesliga, has been named by German newspaper Bild as a potential target for the German champions.

Diouf made five appearances between 2009 and 2012 at Old Trafford, scoring one goal.
