Graeme Souness has listed four reasons that suggest Manchester United will be a force in the Premier League title race this season.

The Red Devils are looking to win the Premier League crown for the first time since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson secured his 13th and final top-flight title of a decorated career at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have already racked up four victories and one stalemate in five games in the title race so far to leave the Red Devils level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

Jose Mourinho’s side have scored 16 goals in five games so far, while Spain international David De Gea has kept four clean sheets with the only blemish a 2-2 draw at Stoke City.

Former Liverpool captain Souness admits he has been impressed with Manchester United’s performances under Mourinho so far this season following last weekend’s 4-0 win against Everton.

“What Man United are at the moment is extremely proficient,” Souness told Sky Sports.

“They defend very well. They have a fantastic goalkeeper. They have power and pace. That mixture makes them a dangerous package.

“You won’t roll them over. You can out-football them.”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but won the EFL Cup and the Europa League to satisfy their fans’ thirst for silverware.

The Red Devils were 3-0 winners against Swiss champions Basel in the Champions League at Old Trafford last week.
