Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel believes that David Moyes' current squad are strong enough to retain their Premier League crown.
49-year-old Schmeichel, who spent eight hugely successful years at Old Trafford between 1991-99, was speaking in the wake of the club's comprehensive 4-1 win over Michael Laudrup's Swansea City on Saturday that was delivered courtesy of respective braces from strike partners Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck.
The former goalkeeper, whose son Kasper is currently first-choice between the sticks at Championship outfit Leicester City, told talkSPORT: "That first game I knew was going to set the tone and we went there and won 4-1 in emphatic style and answered a lot of questions that have been asked of Manchester United for the past three months.
“Man United looked really solid. There is a lot of strength in depth and a lot of young players coming through the ranks.
“We are hearing that one or two more players might still be added to the squad, but it is a squad of players that won the championship by 11 points only three months ago, so they have got that experience now and they will be much, much stronger this year.”
Following their highly-impressive opening day victory in South Wales, United's next task is a reunion with the self-proclaimed 'Special One', Jose Mourinho, in a keenly-anticipated clash against title rivals Chelsea at Old Trafford on Monday night.
