Michael Owen believes that there is still plenty more to come from Manchester United this season following their strong start to the new campaign under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have been the Premier League’s most consistent team so far this term, with Mourinho’s men having taken 10 points from their opening four games to leave them top of the table.

Manchester United have only conceded twice so far this season and they kept a clean sheet once again as they beat Basel 3-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night in their Champions League group opener.

And although former Red Devils striker Owen believes that there will be much sterner tests to come, he feels that there is plenty of promise at Old Trafford at the moment.

Speaking on BT Sport on Tuesday night, Owen said: “They’ve had a good start to the season, albeit they haven’t played any of the big-hitters in the Premier League so far. It will be interesting to see how they size up against them.

“But I do look at the team and thing it’s a much stronger team than last season.

“Nemanja Matic is a fantastic signing and Romelu Lukaku has started scoring goals. There’s still more to come I think.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a crunch clash against Everton at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are looking to win the Premier League title for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement at the end of the 2012-13 campaign.

Manchester United finished sixth last term but won the EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge.
