After losing the first two league matches, United have bounced back with four straight victories.

Elanga spoke to Swedish outlet Fotboll Skanalen and was asked whether United could win the title this season.

Elanga refuses to rule out title challenge

Elanga refused to rule out a title challenge, insistent United are in the mix if the team keep on playing as they are.

He said: “It is still early to answer, but if we continue to play as we have done and win matches then…you never know.

“All teams have a chance to win. The Premier League is the world’s biggest league. Anyone can beat anyone. We’ll see.”

Elanga also spoke about his playing time and said he was content with the game time he has received this season.

He has featured in five out of six Premier League games, starting three and featuring in two as a substitute. He has one start and one substitute appearance in the Europa League.

He said: “We haven’t played that many games so far, but I’ve played most of them. So I’m happy. The coach is very good with me. 

“The players are comfortable together, we have good chemistry. It’s just a matter of continuing.”

It is early days in terms of the league table shaking out, and United must take it one step at a time. A packed fixture schedule in October will present a fresh challenge.

United will be aiming to secure a top four place, and if the team can get to the World Cup break in a Champions League spot, this will set up well for the second half of the campaign.

It may even lead to more funds being released in January to strengthen for a push in 2023.

No United fan is getting carried away or dreaming of a title challenge just yet, but this is the ultimate goal under Erik ten Hag.

The new manager has given the whole club belief, and you can see this on the pitch with the team’s performances.
