Striker Wayne Rooney feels it would be especially satisfying if Manchester United can clinch the Barclays Premier League title this season with Manchester City having been their closest challengers.

United, who are hunting a 13th Premier League crown, knocked City off top spot for the first time since October last weekend when they defeated West Brom 2-0 while Roberto Mancini's men were beaten 1-0 at Swansea.

"If we can win this league then I'm sure it will be very satisfying for all the players, fans and everyone connected to the club because there was one stage when we weren't expected to win the league, which is mad when you are talking about Man United," Rooney told BBC's Football Focus.
