Steven Gerrard predicts that Manchester United will be competing at the top of the Premier League again this season.

The Red Devils have strengthened in the summer with the additions of Victor Lindelof from Benfica, Romelu Lukaku from Everton and Nemanja Matic from Chelsea

And the Liverpool legend is backing Jose Mourinho’s side to start moving in the right direction under the Portuguese coach.

“Romelu Lukaku is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League and Matic, for me, is an excellent signing,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

“It was only going to be a matter of time before Jose went out and got those pieces of the jigsaw that would make United stronger and able to compete at the top of the league again.

“It certainly looks like they’re moving in that direction now.”

When asked if United would be in the mix for the title, Gerrard replied: “Yes, for sure.”
