ALEX FERGUSON is stunned by his team's start to the new season and admitted: I've never seen anything like it.
United have won five straight league games this term, scoring an impressive 21 goals in the process.
It is the club's best start to any top-flight campaign since 1985 — before Ferguson even arrived at Old Trafford — and the boss says he is loving it.
Following yesterday's 3-1 win against Big Four rivals Chelsea, Ferguson, 69, said: "I have never had a team before that has opened a season in such blistering form and scored so freely.
"It is breaking new ground for me — and to say that at this stage of a fairly lengthy career is really something.
"I'm excited and why not? Because we have been privy to something rather special.
"Of course, you can't help wondering if it is going to last and, after a lifetime in the game, football has taught me that there is often a banana skin around the corner.
"I ask myself, 'Will the bubble burst?' But while accepting that our present form is exceptional, I can't help but feel that this season is going to be good for Manchester United.
"We may find it difficult to maintain the scoring spree that has been such a feature of our Premier League games so far this season.
"But I believe we will continue to be a handful for our opponents and make a serious championship challenge again."
