Steven Gerrard believes that Manchester United have already shown that they will be contenders for the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils continued their strong start to the new season by sealing an impressive 4-0 victory over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

That result followed their victory by the same scoreline against West Ham United last weekend.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping to steer his team to Premier League victory this season after the Red Devils finished in a disappointing sixth place in the table last term.

Indeed, the Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired back in 2013.

And former Liverpool captain Gerrard admitted that if Manchester United can continue their form, they will definitely be one of the main contenders for the title this season.

Speaking on Premier League Tonight on BT Sport, Gerrard said: “What I would say is that they [West Ham and Swansea] are the teams that, in the last three years or so, have struggled against.

“You know Mourinho is going to have a game-plan for the big games, he’s a serial winner and produces teams and sets them up to win big games.

“If Manchester United keep turning out results like that, there’s no doubt about it – come the end of the season they will be involved.”

Manchester United are now preparing for a home clash against Leicester City at Old Trafford next Saturday.

The Red Devils are also gearing up for a return to the Champions League next month after winning the Europa League in Mourinho’s first season in charge last term.
