Gary Neville sends warning to Man United about title race
The Manchester United legend warns Jose Mourinho's men that there are tougher tests around the corner
Gary Neville has warned Manchester United that there are toughest tests to come in the title race despite their impressive start to the season.
The Red Devils have collected 13 points from their opening five Premier League games to hoist themselves level on points with derby rivals Manchester City at the top of the table.
Manchester United have already beaten West Ham, Swansea, Leicester City and Everton, while Stoke City are the only team to secure a point in a 2-2 draw with the Red Devils.
Jose Mourinho is looking to guide Manchester United to their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson secured his 13th and final top-flight crown at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils won’t face a traditional title rival until Mourinho’s side make the short trip to Anfield to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side on 14 October.
Former Manchester United defender Neville warned Mourinho’s men that there will be much tougher games to come after a relatively simple start to the 2017-18 Premier League campaign.
“I did say at the start of the season that the title would end up in Manchester and the evidence so far supports that, but it’s far too early for either club to get carried away,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“You would have said, from the fixtures, United should have been at the top at this stage, but I think the table will start to even out once we see them against tougher sides.”
Manchester United will make the trip to Southampton in their next Premier League game on Saturday before hosting Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace side at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils signed three players in the summer transfer window.
