Robbie Savage is convinced that Manchester United will win the Premier League title this season under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have made a strong start to the new campaign under Jose Mourinho, with Manchester United having won four of their opening five games to leave them joint top of the table along with Manchester City.

Manchester United have won three of their opening five games by a 4-0 scoreline and have looked particularly impressive at the back this term, conceding only twice in the Premier League.

And former midfielder Savage seems certain that Manchester United will be crowned champions in May after their impressive start to the new campaign.

Explaining why he thinks the Red Devils will win the league, Savage told BBC Radio 5 live: “Manchester United have the best defence in the league.

“David De Gea is probably the best goalkeeper in the league. Paul Pogba is set to come back.”

Manchester United booked their place in the fourth round of the League Cup on Wednesday night with a 4-1 win over Burton Albion at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are now preparing for their trip to St Mary’s to take on Southampton in the Premier League, as they bid to keep their place at the top of the table.

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge at the club back in 2012-13.
