Manchester United regained their crown with four games to spare and had an 11-point advantage over their City rivals at the finishing line, much to the United midfielder's satisfaction.

"We did really well last year," he said. "We didn't just win it, we won it in style after the previous year, which really hurt us.

"We want to retain the title now. The victory parade was incredible and makes us want to win more and more, especially those of us for who it was the first time.

"We want to be there again and again, going through Manchester on that bus.

"The desire from the senior players is what you want. They have all won a number of titles and they're still so hungry to win more.

"We follow on from that - that feeling passes down to us. We want to be here in 10 years saying we've got six, seven or eight medals. You're brought up like that at this club."

Speaking after the 5-1 win over an A-League All Stars outfit in Sydney, the 23-year-old insisted he was happy with how United's pre-season was taking shape.

"We've definitely hit that extra gear," he added. "You can definitely see in training that the intensity has stepped up and the players are getting to know each other better.

"All the boys are really enjoying the new manager's training. We are moving forward and we want to keep it like that."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
