Paul Ince has backed Manchester United to continue their prolific start to the season at Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils have already scored 16 times in their opening five Premier League games to leave Jose Mourinho’s side level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

Manchester United have already beaten West Ham United, Swansea City and most recently Everton by a 4-0 scoreline in the Premier League this season.

Jose Mourinho’s side are in potent form up front but Manchester United have also impressed at the back after conceding a mere two goals and keeping four clean sheets so far.

Manchester United were 3-2 winners against Southampton in the EFL Cup final last season as Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a late winner to secure the first trophy of Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford.

Former Red Devils midfielder Ince is backing Manchester United to ease to a 3-1 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s in Saturday’s fixture at St Mary’s.

“Hopefully this one will be more like the League Cup final and less like the 0-0 of last season,” Ince told the Daily Express.

“The fact is though, Saints are struggling for goals, and Man United are scoring them for fun. I think it should be a good game.”

Summer signing Romelu Lukaku has already scored five goals in five games in the Premier League since his £75m summer move to Old Trafford from Premier League rivals Everton.

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013.
