They might have 11 wins for the season with the victory over West Ham last week, but United will know that they still weren't convincing in midfield or attack throughout the match.
Scoring in the opening minute, the Red Devils then could not find the back of the net for the entire match and know that they must be better against tougher opponents this year if they want to keep their spot on top of the league table.
They travel to Reading this week, who are coming off consecutive losses against Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa. Late goals hurt the Royals in both matches there and, having played on the road, will be glad to be back at home this week for the league leaders.
Interestingly, Reading haven't been beaten at home since Tottenham Hotspur beat them back in just the third week of the 2012/13 Premier League season.
There's no doubt that United have the ability and talent needed to score goals here, but whether they can get the three points—well, that one might not be quite as easy as it seems for Sir Alex Ferguson's men.
