Rooney requires another eight goals to equal his best ever haul of 34, scored in his injury-blighted 2009-2010 campaign.
That will be a target too, although the 26-year-old is not letting personal aims get in the way of collective achievements.
"I know how many goals I need to achieve it but I am not really focussed on that at the minute," he said.
"We have 10 games left and I just want to help us get those points we need to be successful. The most important thing is to win trophies."
