Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes that there is more to come from his side in the coming months, after a low-key start to the new campaign.
The Red Devils have struggled to find top form due to the absence of the likes of Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, but defensive solidity has seen United rise to second in the Premier League on the back of six straight clean sheets.
Scholes told the Manchester Evening News: "Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo are top players for us and they proved that with the number of goals they scored last season.
"But we lost Wayne to a broken foot on the opening day and Cristiano was suspended, so we were bound to miss them.
"We were also playing decent teams at the start, so in a way we expected tight games.
"When you look at the overall start to the season, we probably have not played as well as we would want.
"But the key thing is that we are still up there. We have put together a decent run in the league and things are looking better."
