Jose Mourinho’s debut season at the helm of Manchester United was a fairly underwhelming one as the Portuguese tactician had to settle with the 6th spot in the English Premier League. As a way to avoid suffering another disappointing campaign, Manchested United made a huge splash during the summer transfer window, signing Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof for a total cost of around €164 million, whilst also being linked with a January move for Radja Nainggolan, who has been earning rave reviews from Socagol viewers so far this season.

Romelu Lukaku has kicked off his career at Old Trafford in a very strong manner as the Belgium attacker scored 7 goals in 8 league matches which makes him the top goal-scorer of Jose Mourinho’s squad, and in the Premier League - it's no wonder so many fans are tuning in to watch United games on this season.

Out of these 8 opening matches of the EPL season, Manchester United have gained points and secured victories in a very comfortable way as they claimed 4-0 triumphs over Everton, Crystal Palace, Swansea City and West Ham.

They have managed to remain undefeated along with Manchester City as those 2 clubs are the only ones of the English Premier League that been able to not sustain any losses out of these 8 opening games of the 2017-18 season.

Not only has Manchester United appeared to be almost unstoppable in the English Premier League but they have been going through an impressive run in the UEFA Champions League group stages after convincingly defeating Basel 3-0 and overcoming CSKA Moscow 4-1. These victories have allowed Manchester United to stay at the top of group A and are at a very comfortable position with no losses either in these early stages of the prestigious European competition.

The 2017-18 season of the English Premier League kicked off on August 17 and even though it has only been around 2 months since the top English league started, Manchester United has gone from finishing at the 6th spot to turning into a very realistic squad that can become the new champions of England which is something that they have not been able to do since the season of 2012-13, which was when first started showing their matches across the globe.

It seems like the departure of Wayne Rooney from Old Trafford has indeed sprinkled a positive effect on Manchester United and Romelu Lukaku’s task of becoming the new goal-scoring machine of the English outfit initiated in a very strong way.

Manchester City is the only club that has managed to secure more points than Manchester United from these 8 opening matches as the squad of Pep Guardiola snatched 22 points while their nearest rivals are 2 points behind.

While Manchester United are depending on Romelu Lukaku for the majority of their goals, it’s a very different story for the team of Pep Guardiola as the club from the Etihad Stadium has a total of 3 players who have scored 6 goals from 7 matches. Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling have scored 6 goals in 7 games while Sergio Aguero has also found the back of the net on 6 ocassions but in 6 matches.

Pep Guardiola and supporters of Manchester City are hoping that these players can continue this impressive burst of goals throughout the remainder of the season which has given Manchester City such an impressive start with overwhelming triumphs like their recent 7-2 victory over Stoke.

Chelsea are the reigning champions of England and have the task of defending their EPL title but protecting it will be extremely difficult especially considering just how impressive these Manchester clubs have been doing and are hoping to do for the upcoming months.
