Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney is desperate for victory today against Liverpool.

The Reds, who are currently two points behind leaders City, host Kenny Dalglish's men at Old Trafford today and Rooney says only a victory will do.

"United versus Liverpool has always been a massive game - it's a game between the two biggest clubs in England," he told the matchday programme, United Review.

"I used to watch the matches all the time when I was growing up and I always supported United in them!

"To be part of them now is fantastic but it's a game you never want to lose."
