Arsene Wenger has questioned whether Manchester United’s younger players are “mature enough” to put in a run of consistent performances for the club.

United have had a difficult start to the Premier League season under Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They beat Chelsea 4-0 before the draw at Wolves, defeat to Crystal Palace and draw at Southampton.

“When you see Man Utd they are one of the examples where there is a potential there,’ the former Arsenal boss told beIN Sports . “But they have not found a collective way. Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man Utd all together.

“That’s the big question mark now. You feel there is something coming out but it’s not ready.  That’s why I say when you watch them play they are not candidates to fight for the championship. Will they emulate what Giggs, Scholes, Beckham did over a number of years? Personally I’m not convinced.”
