Man Utd have lost fear factor, admits Rooney

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has admitted teams no longer fear playing at Old Trafford after Manchester City inflicted the Premier League champions’ sixth home defeat of the season, ESPN has reported.

ESPN adds that it is the first time in 36 years that United have lost six games at home and David Moyes’ side are now 15 points adrift of City, having finished last season 11 points clear under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson.


“It's not good enough,” Rooney said. “We can't lose six homes games in a season and we have to put that right, and make this a place which teams fear again.


“[The home fans were] great again tonight. As a team, we need them to be strong and to understand there has been a big change at the club. We have to step up and start giving the fans something to cheer about with some good performances and wins.”


Rooney added that United deserved little more than the 3-0 defeat inflicted by City, with Edin Dzeko getting a brace - including netting inside a minute - and Yaya Toure adding the third.


“It's a bad night and we didn't deserve to win,” Rooney continued. “We weren't clinical enough and we didn't create enough chances.


“No-one likes to lose a derby game - they're big games and they're great to win, but when you lose it's not a great feeling. It's probably been the story of our season so far that we've got a couple of good results and then one which sets us back a bit.”
