Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United fans not to get carried away by the Red Devils’ strong start to the new Premier League season.

The Red Devils are currently flying high in second place in the table after having won six of their opening seven Premier League games and conceding just two goals.

Mourinho’s men are level on points with leaders Manchester City as they bid to try and win the title this season.

Manchester United notched up another impressive 4-0 victory as they thrashed Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in front of their home fans on Saturday.

However, despite their strong start to the new campaign, Mourinho has warned Red Devils fans that it is too early to draw conclusions from their fine start.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Saturday, Mourinho said: “It’s too early. Seven matches… It’s too early.”

Manchester United’s biggest test of the season so far comes directly after the international break, on Saturday 14 October, when Mourinho will take his Red Devils team to Anfield to take on Liverpool.

The Red Devils are aiming to win the Premier League title this season for the first time since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in the 2012-13 campaign.

Manchester United finished sixth but won the Europa League and League Cup last season.
