The former Manchester United striker noted that with the addition of Haaland to their ranks, City now put a lot of balls into the box.

“If United can play Haaland out of the game, they’ll have a big chance,” Rooney told The Times.

“But it’s easier said than done,” the DC United manager said, adding that City still has the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez, who according to him, could be a big factor.

“I think Pep Guardiola will start with him. With United having a left back, Tyrell Malacia, who is left-footed, I can see Pep using Mahrez on the right to try to come inside and expose Malacia on his right foot,” he added.
