Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, believes his side have moved up a level this season in quality, as they beat Leicester City 2-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Having played and won their three matches since the beginning of the campaign, the Red Devils have maintained a 100% start to the Premier League season like they did last season.
Goals from substitutes Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini helped them to victory against the Foxes.
“There is a difference in the quality of our football,” said Mourinho.
“The team is playing very well – they are very confident and are playing great football. I like my team very much. Three matches and nine points is nothing new for us, because last season it was three matches and nine points.”
He added, “We played very well. The result was open at 0-0 and it was obviously very difficult. The blue wall was very well organised and I always give credit to that, but we kept calm and kept control.”
United are currently top of the table, having a two-point lead over Huddersfield and Manchester City going as the international break comes up next week.
The League returns on September 9th, when United will be away to Stoke City on matchday 4.
