Arsene Wenger admits he is "not convinced" that Manchester United's youngsters can return the club to the top of the Premier League.

United have registered a string of poor results since their encouraging 4-0 win over Chelsea in their season opener played at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side have had an unconvincing start to their Premier League campaign.

Draws to Wolves and Southampton and a home defeat to Crystal Palace have followed, but Rashford has backed the 1999 treble victor to be successful in charge at Old Trafford.

Wrong. United have already suffered one embarrassing defeat this season - the 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at home - and dropped points against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton.

Leicester City are now third on the league table and apart from Man City and Liverpool, they are the only other side who are yet to taste defeat this season.

"Will they emulate what Giggs, Scholes, Beckham did over a number of years? But they have not found a collective way", Wenger, who is reportedly set to join Federation Internationale de Football Association in a technical role, told Qatar-based broadcaster beIN Sports.

"Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man United, altogether".

'That's the big question mark now.

In the absence of players like Wan-Bissaka and Martial, the manager might have to field players like Ashley Young and Mason Greenwood which surely will raise a lot of doubts regarding the Man United starting line-up.

"You feel there is something coming out but it's not ready", Wenger added. When you watch them play, they are not a candidate to fight for the championship.

"I believe we're still a few years away", Cole, who won five league titles and the 1999 Champions League during six years at Old Trafford, told Sky Sports.

Maguire became the world's most expensive defender following his £80m switch to Manchester United from Leicester City.
