Man United have lost one and won one in their start to the Premier League season and Nemanja Matic believes he knows what they have to do to become title challengers.

Nemanja Matic believes Manchester United must embark on a winning run of at least five matches if they are to be considered Premier League title contenders.

United dropped points in their season opener with a chastening 3-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace and were fortunate to secure a 3-2 win at Brighton, where they were awarded a penalty after the game had initially ended.

Tottenham Hotspur visit United on Sunday in the first of three successive home games against 'big six' clubs, with Chelsea and Arsenal due at Old Trafford in October and November.

Matic has the experience of winning the Premier League twice with Chelsea under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte and is looking forward to a reunion with his former manager this weekend.

"I always like to say the team who is fighting for the title needs to have that run always of five/six games before you drop some points," Matic told the United programme. "That’s normal, no team can win every game.

"We've already dropped some points at home in the first game so now we need to make a run of five/six games winning, winning, winning because then we will have a chance to win some trophies. That’s exactly how we finished last season.

"We know what we did well and we have to practice that and try to repeat that again so we have more belief and more confidence to go into the next games.

"We know (Tottenham) play many games, especially in this last week. It’s hard for them but we have also played a difficult game in the week as well. It’s going to be hard, when you play Tottenham it always is. They have a great squad and also a great manager who we know very well. We will do our best to win."

Matic was recalled by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer against Luton last week before starting at Brighton and could keep his place against Spurs. There is intense competition in the United midfield following the arrival of Donny van de Beek and their six midfielders - Van de Beek, Matic, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay, Fred and Bruno Fernandes - have each started two of the first four games.

Van de Beek scored on his debut and Matic has been impressed by the Dutchman's start at United. "Off the pitch I think he’s a great guy," Matic added. "On the pitch I think he brings a lot of quality with the ball, his movements around the box are great.

"I think this season and in the future he will be a very important player. He’s still young and he can still improve and I’m happy that we have him in the team.

"We have a big squad, and especially in midfield we are very strong and it’s always good to have good competition. Healthy competition is always good for the team so we are here to challenge.

"The manager, of course, is going to decide who is going to play because when you play for Man United you have to win your games to win trophies and to fight for the title. We will see if we have enough quality for that. I’m sure that we have."
