Wayne Rooney insists Manchester City have to do a lot more to earn the tag of the Premier League’s best ever team.

City have trashed every opposition they have faced in the League bar Everton and they are widely regarded as the best team in the land and the favorite to win the Champions League.

Speaking on talkSPORT this weekend, former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney said this City side still have a way to go to match up to Sir Alex Ferguson's 2007/08 team that lifted a Premier League and Champions League double.

Rooney said: "I'm not sure they are quite there. They would have to keep going and do a lot more. I would go with the United team from 2008.

"There are so many great teams throughout the years in the Premier League.

"This City team need to win trophies and do it for a longer period to be in that bracket."
