Manchester United goalscoring king Denis Law believes Robin van Persie's strike partnership with Wayne Rooney will fire his old club to glory this season.

Although Rooney will miss Sunday's clash with Liverpool after picking up a knee injury during Christmas Day training, Law has been impressed at the way he combined with Van Persie following the Dutchman's arrival from Arsenal. Immediately prior to Rooney getting injured, the pair hit a rich vein of form.

And Law is confident if they pick up where they left off, space will have to be found for some sort of silverware in the Old Trafford trophy cabinet in May. He told MUTV: "If the two of them are playing together, that has to be a problem for any defence. When you have two players like that there is a fair chance you will win the league or the Champions League."
