However, Holt added that both United and City look impressive this season, and predicts the blue side of Manchester will pip the red side to the Premier League title.

The Manchester clubs are joint top of the table with exactly the same record - 13 points from five games and a plus-14 goal difference.

"They've got the best player in the league - and that's David Silva".

"City have spent the biggest amount in the Premier League so they are the principle contenders for the title. But you know when you play for Man United, winning is an expectation and an obligation but I like that obligation to be honest".

The Mail on Sunday's Ollie Holt referenced City's start to the campaign last season, where Pep Guardiola's side won their first six league games, as a warning that it may be too early to make title predictions.

"When the manager says to me: "Sergio, you're in the side for this game", whether it's the league or the cups, or whatever, I'm prepared to show that that he can still have faith in me because I'm in good form". "There's hope there for City". We won three last season so they have more obligation than us. We have quality as well and we will fight for every title.

United may struggle to maintain their explosive start to the Premier League season if injured midfielder Paul Pogba is out for long, the club's playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has said.
