At this moment in time, Manchester United are in a very good place.

The Red Devils enjoyed a very successful summer transfer window, bringing in Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof, and they have gone on to win their first three Premier League games.

In fact, not only have they achieved victory, they have done so in style, scoring 10 times and keeping three consecutive clean sheets.

After a season of disappointment in the league in 2016/17, Jose Mourinho's masterful summer spending looks to have United on course to challenge for the title once again - the first time they have done so in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.

After losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to injury last season, the main area of focus was to bring in a quality striker.

The Swede may now have re-signed with the club but he is likely not to feature until January.

Lukaku was the man brought in and so far, the Belgian has excelled, scoring four times in his first four competitive games for the club.

On international duty, he continued his fine form, notching a hattrick against European minnows Gibraltar, before scoring again in the 2-1 victory away in Greece on Sunday night.


His late header sealed passage to the 2018 World Cup, but United fans all agreed on one aspect of his impressive goal.

Paris Saint-Germain full-back Thomas Meunier delivered an inch perfect cross and it was this that led to Red Devils supporters tweeting how desperately Mourinho needed to sign someone in the summer who can do the same.


The current wide players at United are not really natural wingers, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all preferring to operate more centrally.

Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic was Mourinho's number one target and the Croatian is famed for his deadly crossing and hugging the touchline.

As for the likes of Daley Blind and Antonio Valencia in the full-back roles, well, they simply have to take one look at Lukaku's Belgium goals and realise they need to start practicing crossing on the training pitch.

If they can master it, they will only enhance their main goal threat.
