Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney admits it's tough seeing Manchester City and Liverpool outshining them this season.
Rooney admits that it is difficult to see City in contention, while Liverpool's presence near the top makes things even worse.
"To see City doing well, and particularly Liverpool, is really difficult," the England striker told Inside United.
"It's not nice when we know we are capable of being up there challenging and we haven't been doing that this season.
"However, it means we have to step up and get back up there because the feeling we've had this season is not a nice feeling at all to have.
"We have to keep working, keep progressing and finish the season stronger."
