Manchester United’s captain and striker Wayne Rooney warns fellow team-mates that Champions League qualification is theirs to lose if they do not play to their potential. Juan Mata’s brace meant Manchester United won 2-1 over Liverpool at Anfield.

The gap between Liverpool and Manchester United is now 5-points ahead of Liverpool with only 8 games left in the season. The Red Devils have been the best team in Premier League over the last month. Despite their good work Manchester United can still face fierce competition from Liverpool, Southampton and Tottenham for a top-four spot.

The match against Aston Villa will be a key test for Manchester United as they are set to face Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal towards the end of the season. Wayne Rooney is well aware how quickly things can change, admitting nothing less than victory will suffice when Aston Villa come to Aston Villa on Saturday.

The 29-year old striker said, “Yes it was (a six-pointer at Liverpool), but that means nothing if we don’t beat Aston Villa on Saturday.Obviously Arsenal play Liverpool as well, so if we can get the win against Villa that will be an even better result than Liverpool was for us.

“I think there are still eight games left. We are in a good position at the minute so it’s in our own hands, so have to make sure we do it.”
