Wayne Rooney says Manchester United's senior players need to step up.

Rooney admits the senior leadership group needs to do more to support manager David Moyes.

"A win like this can turn things around," he said after victory at Sunderland.

"The last week has helped. It's down to us experienced players to try and make sure we stay calm as a squad. We need to help the younger players and if we do that, there'll be moments where they come in and win us the game, as has happened at Sunderland (with two-goal hero Adnan Januzaj).

"The experienced lads need to help them emerge into a team that will keep us up there.

"It will be a transitional season because it's a new manager with different styles and we have to adapt to them.

"More importantly, we need to do better for him than we have been."
