‘Man City vs West Ham’ Online Live Stream

The former Derby County boss, who has joined DC United as their new manager, said he was encouraged by Haaland’s performance in last week’s Community Shield despite the player missing a number of high profile chances.

Writing in The Sunday Times, Rooney noted Haaland’s aggressive running against Liverpool and said that the signs were there for the Norwegian to kick on and have a decisive say in the title race.

He wrote: ‘I saw [in the Community Shield] City’s big signing confirm why he is going to get a lot of goals in England and will, in my opinion, prove the difference in the title race.

‘He is a major reason why I see City retaining the title,’ he added. ‘Liverpool are an incredible team and can beat anyone on their day but I just think, across the pitch, City have better players and that they’re a better side.’

Rooney went on to write that he expects Haaland to deliver on the enormous pressure he arrives under, saying that despite a number of high profile signings to the Premier League not having worked in the past he ‘expects’ the Norwegian to be a success.
