Rooney and Van Persie target record points total
London: Manchester United strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie have set a target to win the Premier League with a record-breaking points tally.
The Red Devils need just seven points from their last six matches to be crowned English champions and could eclipse Chelsea`s 2004-05 high watermark of 95 points if they will all their remaining games.
"We are in a great position," Rooney told The Guardian. "We have to make sure we move on and push ourselves over that line.
"The manager [told us before beating Stoke City] that the season started today and we`ve now got six to go – we have to go for all of them. If we win them all, we get a record in our pockets, so it`s a good aim, a nice target for all of us to achieve."
Van Persie added: "We don`t just want to try and win the league by getting the points we need, we want to get maximum points now from the games remaining.
"It`s important that you keep a run of wins going and that`s what we want to do."
