Gary Neville has admitted that he has been very impressed by the progress Manchester United have made this season.

The Red Devils have made a strong start to the new campaign under Jose Mourinho as the Portuguese coach looks to try and steer Manchester United to the title in his second campaign in charge at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are currently second in the Premier League table after winning six of their opening eight games, leaving them two points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in the 2012-13 campaign.

However, Neville feels that for the first time in a number of years, Manchester United look like genuine contenders for the Premier League title this term.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Neville said: “There’s consistency, definitely.

“There’s strength, there’s power, they’re tough to beat, there are a lot of very good things.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon as they look to get back to winning ways in the top flight following their goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.

Mourinho’s men continued their fine European form on Wednesday with a 1-0 victory over Benfica to take another step closer to the last 16 of the Champions League.
