Manchester United must show they can dominate big games, says Jermaine Jenas

by Harry Robinson

Jermaine Jenas believes Manchester United will find out more about themselves with the first ‘big’ games of their season in the next month or so.

The BBC pundit claimed that Jose Mourinho‘s side are yet to show they can dominate teams of similar stature, having faced a relatively easy start to the season.

Man United are yet to play Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur or Arsenal. Games against Liverpool and Chelsea are coming up in United’s next few games.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5Live, Jenas said, “I don’t think Manchester United have faced their biggest test yet.”

“I don’t look at Manchester United and think they’ll go to Stamford Bridge or Wembley and dominate the game.”

Mourinho’s men are joint top of the league after seven games, sitting just below Manchester City on goal difference having scored one fewer goal than the Citizens.

Free-scoring, dynamic and ruthless, United have looked a genuine force and certainly a title-contender.

But Jenas is right. This new-look, improved Mourinho side are yet to face the challenge of another top side. City have beaten Liverpool and Chelsea, United must now follow suit if they are to win their first league title since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.
