Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says the players accept being scrutinised over their poor season.

Rooney admits his partnership with Robin van Persie will be key to improving results.

"We can do better and if we are not at the top of the league then that will get looked at and we understand that," Rooney said.

"We can score more goals and we know we can. We are working hard to do that, we have to keep going and hopefully that will come."
