Paul Pogba claims Manchester United are their "own rivals" and has urged Jose Mourinho's side not be scared of their Premier League as the Red Devils look to win their first title since 2013.

The 20-time English champions started the 2017/18 season with a disappointing note following a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in the 2017 Uefa Super Cup. However, United bounced with two 4-0 victories in the league over West Ham United and Swansea City.

Pogba scored twice and registered an assist in the two fixtures as the Red Devils clinched six points out of the possible six. This has seen them sit on top of the league table and are one of the three teams to hold a 100 percent record in the Premier League this term.

The France international is pleased with his side's impressive start, but has warned his teammates to "stay focused" as United look to win the league.

"I'm pleased and happy that we have started really well, but it is not finished yet. It is just the start of the season," Pogba told ESPN FC.

"The biggest challengers? We are our own rivals and we think about ourselves first. But we don't have to be scared of anyone in the league because we know we are a strong team as well. We know we can do great this season.

"I hope [we can win the title]. Every team is strong, like when Leicester won it two years ago and nobody expected it, so you don't know what's going to happen.

"We started very well, but we can end up bad and we don't want this. We want to be focused from game to game."
