Sam Allardyce has backed Jose Mourinho to lead Manchester United to Premier League title glory this season.

The Red Devils have made a flying start to the new campaign and have won their opening three Premier League games to leave them top of the table.

Mourinho’s men have secured victories over West Ham United, Swansea and Leicester City, scoring 10 goals without reply in the process.

And former England manager Allardyce believes that Mourinho’s previous experience of winning the Premier League will play a significant role this season.

Speaking in an interview with talkSPORT, Allardyce said: “Jose has done it before and he has done it many different countries. He knows how to do it.

“He knows when and where to change his tactics, to change how the team plays. You have seem it many times.

“He started the process of being a Jose team last year when they were a whisker away from being a lot better than they finished.

“There were too many draws and not enough wins and it looks like he has cured their problem – they didn’t score enough goals and their goal record and attack is far better now.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils are aiming to win the Premier League for the first time this season since they last lifted the trophy in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge back in 2012-13.

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