Jermaine Jenas sends warning to Man United about title race
The Spurs legend warns Jose Mourinho that his Manchester United side will face tougher tests in the Premier League title race
Jermaine Jenas has warned Jose Mourinho that Manchester United will face tougher tests in the Premier League.
The Red Devils have barely put a foot wrong in the Premier League in the 2017-18 season so far following a run of five victories and one stalemate.
Manchester United are level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City following a return of 16 points from their opening six games.
The Red Devils only dropped points at the bet365 Stadium after Manchester United were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw with Stoke City.
The 20-time English champions have scored four goals in emphatic victories over Swansea City, West Ham and Everton, while easing to a 2-0 win against Everton before Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal of the game at Southampton last weekend.
Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jenas warned Mourinho that Manchester United haven’t really been tested in the Premier League so far this season ahead of their trip to Crystal Palace last weekend.
“I don’t think Manchester United have faced their biggest test yet,” Jenas told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I don’t look at Manchester United and think they’ll go to Stamford Bridge or Wembley and dominate the game.
“In terms of how dangerous they are, they’ve got a better chance of winning those games.”
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season.
The Red Devils signed Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Benfica defender Victor Lindelof.
