Steven Gerrard has reluctantly admitted that Manchester United are entertaining to watch so far this season.

The Red Devils continued their excellent form with a 3-0 win against Swiss side Basel in their first Champions League game of the new season before a 4-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.

Manchester United have already scored 15 goals in five games in all competitions in the 2017-18 campaign so far to flex their attacking prowess.

The 20-time English champions were heavily criticised for their lack of goals last season after Manchester United ended up scoring less times than Bournemouth.

Manchester United signed Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in the summer in a £75m deal to help with their attacking problems.

Former Liverpool captain Gerrard has begrudgingly admitted that Manchester United are fun to watch going forward under Mourinho this season.

“Careful Gary!” Gerrard told BT Sport presenter Gary Lineker last week. “No, of course they’re exciting to watch going forward.”

Manchester United also signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have won three of their opening four Premier League games to secure top spot in the table.
