Jose Mourinho has warned his Manchester United team that they must not read too much into their strong start to the new Premier League season.

The Red Devils have been in good form so far this term and only dropped their first Premier League points of the season when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Stoke last weekend.

Manchester United have taken 10 points from their opening four games of the new campaign to leave them as one of the pace-setters in the Premier League table.

However, Mourinho pointed to the fact that Chelsea are only one point behind the Red Devils heading into this weekend’s round of games, and that a host of other teams are also looking strong.

Mourinho told Sky Sports: “We have 10 points. Man City have 10 points. Chelsea have nine points, Tottenham maybe seven, Liverpool seven, so what’s the difference?

“One point, two points, three points, one weekend, two weekends.

“They also have managers with title histories. Not all in the Premier League but in other countries. Everybody has a history of success.”

The Portuguese coach is currently preparing his side for their crunch clash against Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Wayne Rooney could be set to come up against his old club for the first time since he signed for Everton from the Red Devils in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United kicked off their Champions League campaign with a comfortable 3-0 win over Basel at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
