Eight goals scored, none conceded and six points in the bag.

Despite slumping to a sixth place finish in the league, United still managed to come away with two trophies (three if you include the Community Shield) and secured Champions League qualification for the first time in three seasons. Mourinho would call it confidence.

"Once we get over United we have a couple of weeks and I am hoping we can up (Iborra's) fitness and get him out onto the grass".

Four different goalscorers scored for United in the 4-0 win over Swansea last weekend. Old Trafford was a fortress that teams dreaded visiting, and above all, major silverware was the norm every season. It's nearly as if he was going "I told you so" at anyone who would listen.

Sanchez is a tough tackler and a dogged man-marker, although he also possesses plenty of skill on the ball.

Whether this particular angle of coverage pertaining to Lukaku and a few others is consciously condescending or not is an important discussion to be had more voraciously.

They have won their opening three Premier League fixtures on five previous occasions - but only once did they go on to win the title (in 2006-07).

"Obviously it's far too early to confidently predict a 14th Premier League title - after all they won their first three games last season and we all know what happened then".

One thing United lacked last season was the inability of their key men to deliver consistently last season, but as evidenced against the Hammers and the Swans, the Red Devils have put that issue behind them.
