Former Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune believes the Old Trafford outfit will retain the Barclays Premier League title this season due to their fearsome form going forward.

United currently sit top of the table with 19 points from seven games and a mammoth goal difference of positive 19.

The Red Devils have netted an impressive 24 times in the league thus far, with Wayne Rooney starting the campaign in clinical fashion - notching 10 league goals.

And, although Fortune has his concerns over United's recently fragile defence, the South African has been mightily impressed by the attacking potency of Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"I think we'll win the league but I'm a bit worried about the defensive side," he told

"I'm sure everyone wants to sort it out.


"Going forward, we're unbelievably scary. I've been going to most of the games and teams don't know how to cope with us.

"On the other side, we're letting too many easy goals in. I'm sure when we get a settled back-four again, with Vidic back, we'll be fine as we've been having to chop and change."
