Robbie Fowler, a former Liverpool forward believes Manchester United’s credential for Premier League success is yet to be fully tested after enjoying a straightforward start to the season.
“If you look at the fixtures – I’m not having a go at Manchester United here – but the run that they’ve had, they’ve played teams who, on paper, they should be beating,” Fowler told the Daily Mail.
“Without sounding disrespectful to them, now you’ll see over maybe the next month or so, with the run of fixtures they’ve got, what sort of team that really is. They’ve done well. Football is a confidence thing, and that breeds confidence.”
After a string of results that has seen the Manchester side draw only a game in the English top flight against Stoke City , critics of the club have said the European club is yet to meet a strong side in their 2017/2018 EPL campaign.
Jose Mourinho’s side, face Liverpool on Saturday and are unbeaten in their opening seven games of the season and sit level on points with rivals Manchester City.
