Wayne Rooney says Manchester United want to break the Premier League points record.

With six games left they are on course to beat Chelsea’s Premier League record total of 95, set in 2005.

Rooney reckons it is important Sir Alex Ferguson’s men finish the campaign strongly as they close in on a record 20th top-flight crown.

United travel to West Ham tomorrow and Rooney said: “The manager told us before the game at Stoke that the season started here and we’ve now got six to go – we have to go for all of them.

“If we win them all then we get another record in our pockets, so it’s a good aim and a nice target for all of us to achieve.”
