Man Utd are in a real good position, says former Reds skipper.



Manchester United are looking strong and powerful and Jose Mourinho has made the spine of the team even better, according to Gary Neville. The United legend said Mourinho has moved away from the Louis van Gaal philosophy as he expects his former side to score more goals and kill teams off this season - depending on how Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku are played. "Manchester United are looking strong, powerful and more like a Jose Mourinho team," Neville told Sky Sports. "I think last season there was a movement away from how the team played under Louis van Gaal's side and I think it will become more of a Mourinho side. "You can see more of what he has normally done before with Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku coming in, making sure that the spine of the team is really powerful and strong and has that physicality to deal with the Premier League season. "So I think they're in a real good position, the squad looks strong and I think how Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Lukaku play will determine what happens. "In the last two or three seasons they've been defensively okay but not scoring enough goals have hurt United and I think there are goals in the side now. They have to deliver and kill teams off. "There were so many games at Old Trafford that were 0-0 or 1-1 where they had chances but weren't clinical enough and I think that's ultimately the biggest thing that has to change for Manchester United in the league."
