Michael Owen says Manchester United don’t have any chinks in the armour ahead of their trip to Liverpool in their next Premier League fixture.

The Red Devils have made a brilliant start to the Premier League season following a return of 19 points from their opening seven top-flight games.

Manchester United were 4-0 winners against the Premier League’s basement club Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday evening to extend their winning run.

Jose Mourinho’s side have now scored 21 times and have kept six clean sheets to challenge derby rivals Manchester City for the title.

Manchester United haven’t faced one of their traditional rivals in the Premier League so far this season but will take on Liverpool at Anfield after the international break.

Liverpool have only managed to win of their last seven games in all competitions as Jurgen Klopp’s side struggle to find some momentum.

Former Manchester United striker Owen believes the Red Devils are in good shape ahead of their trip to Anfield on Saturday 14 October.

“The league games,” Owen told BT Sport. “You’d expect them to win against Palace then they’ve got Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea in three of the next five league games are really tricky.

“Their style of play is really suited to playing good teams. I don’t think there is a chink in the armour at the minute.

“Even if they up the level of the opponent, they’re still looking pretty smart.”

Liverpool played out a goalless draw with Manchester United at Anfield in the Premier League last season despite a dominant performance.

The Red Devils came from behind to rescue a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford in the return fixture in January.
