Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs believes that Chelsea have been the best team in the Premier League so far this season.
Jose Mourinho’s side are the only unbeaten team in the English top flight, having won six and drawn one of their seven league games.
Chelsea are currently at the top of the league table with 19 points, five points clear of Manchester City, who are second.
Giggs seems to be impressed with the Blues but is confident that United will be able to compete with them as the season progresses.
‘Chelsea have probably been the standout team so far with City just behind them and we want to be up there testing ourselves against those teams’, the former Wales international winger told United’s official website. ‘We feel that we do belong up there but we perhaps haven't shown it consistently this season.
'We've shown glimpses over the last few weeks and hopefully we'll have a lot of players coming back for those games. The form has slowly begun to get better and better and we want to hit form going into those matches’.
United made a rather staggering start to the 2014-15 Premier League campaign, but they appeared to come into form before the two-week international break.
Louis van Gaal’s side won successive games against West Ham United and Everton at Old Trafford to move up to fourth in the standings with 11 points from seven matches.
United return to Premier League action on Monday when they take on West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, and one suspects that they will win that game.
