United's 2019/20 season began with a convincing 4-0 home victory over rivals Chelsea but have since shown glimpses of a team under construction.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side have had an unconvincing start to their Premier League campaign.

Manchester United have dropped points in 1-1 stalemates at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton, while the Red Devils suffered a surprise 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

United will be back in domestic action after the global break on Saturday when they play host to Leicester.

Leicester City are now third on the league table and apart from Man City and Liverpool, they are the only other side who are yet to taste defeat this season.

"When you see Man United they are one of the examples where there is a potential there", he told beIN SPORTS. "But they have not found a collective way", Wenger, who is reportedly set to join Federation Internationale de Football Association in a technical role, told Qatar-based broadcaster beIN Sports.

It is a tactic that harks back to the days when United's dominance was driven by their youth academy and the "Class of 92", which included players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Gary Neville, who all went on to establish themselves as legends.

"Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man United, altogether". That's the question mark now.

The former United forward's position was made permanent in March and he presided over the recruitment of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire during the close season.

The England global told BBC Sport on the differences between Solskjaer and Mourinho: "He's very different but that's expected because he's played".

Rashford added on Mourinho: "I don't think it was a problem for him because he's obviously a top manager and he has his way of reading people but for me, when a manager has played they have lived the lifestyle and might be a bit more understanding".
