Man United legend Gary Neville has conceded that rivals Man City are the early front runners after making such an impressive start to the season.
Neville shared his belief that City look energised and have started the season brilliantly after collecting two 3-0 wins over West Brom and Chelsea respectively, according to Sky Sports.
While City have claimed maximum points, reigning champions Chelsea have just one point after two games while Arsenal bounced back on Sunday to get on the board with a win over Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, United are also joint top after winning both their opening matches, but Louis Van Gaal’s side haven’t looked entirely convincing in their 1-0 victories.
As a result, Neville believes that City have laid down the marker for their rivals, and will now look to kick on and continue to make their advantage count in the early part of the season.
Many expect United to drop off the pace at some stage, and so it remains to be seen how long it takes Jose Mourinho to fix the issues at Stamford Bridge to ensure that the reigning champions don’t fall too far behind.
