Wayne Rooney insists there is still a lot more to come from him.

Although he was denied an appearance in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against old club Everton after being left at home to rest ahead of Wednesday night's Premier League showdown with Portsmouth, it could still be a glittering year for the Manchester United striker.

He said: "I would love to score more goals consistently each year. I am still working on that and hopefully I can improve."

But there is no way the United striker will start taking it easy. He knows there is still plenty to do if he is to fulfil his talent, including scoring a few more goals.

"There is still a lot more to come from me," he said.

Rooney has reached 17 for United already this term, plus another seven for England.

"I am only 23 but I suppose I started off at an early age so I have achieved quite a lot," said Rooney.

"I understand people expect things of me now. I just have to keep playing as well as I can. That is what I must try and do.

"If I can help Manchester United or England win trophies it would be great for me."
