Jose Mourinho had described Manchester United's impressive start to the season as "nothing" other than "just a start", but admitted that the ruthlessness marks a change from last season.

United are presently positioned second in the division on goal difference.

Mourinho also gave no specific date for the return of Paul Pogba who copped an hamstring injury a fortnight ago in the UEFA Champions League.

Yoshida lined up alongside Holland global Wesley Hoedt on Saturday, with Virgil van Dijk on the bench and Jack Stephens, so impressive this year, not even in the squad.

Southampton's 24 Premier League defeats in this fixture is their worst record against any opponent.

Suffice it to say, Southampton have not exactly impressed this season, making them exactly the kind of team that Manchester United have tended to feast on this season.

Southampton had a last try at the post with an injury time corner awarded to them but that too went waste as United stayed intact. They (United) realised that we were playing well and they defended.

Manchester United finished sixth in Mourinho's first year in charge, but following another summer spending spree, his side is progressing.

Ahead of the clash, Mourinho praised new Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino, who he feels is an experienced replacement for Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman and Claude Puel.

Lukaku is the joint-top goalscorer in the Premier League alongside Alvaro Morata and Sergio Aguero on six strikes.

The Portuguese manager conceded his team have started better than last season but sees next month, when they face Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, as more significant.

United played an unchanged 11 from the win against Everton and maintained their winning run coming into the challenging game.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has already been involved in six Premier League goals this season - one more than throughout the previous campaign.
