Morrison, who made 54 appearances for the Hillsborough club between 2010 and 2012, says United boss Chris Wilder and his squad ‘deserve all the praise’ they are getting for an impressive start to life back in the Premier League.

And speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast, he believes United can maintain their form in the second half of the season if Wilder can bolster his squad with a couple of additions in this month’s transfer window.

"A lot of people are praising them, so can they continue it? Will they get burned out because he's used near enough the same players,” said Morrison.

“The only people he's really changed are the centre forwards.

"He's brought in people like Freeman, Osborn and Jagielka and they haven't really played as much - so I think his squad players need to play.

“He's obviously brought in Jack Rodwell now and I think they will do business in January. I think they will sign a couple more players.

"But I think Chris Wilder is terrific and he's getting the best out of that group of players at the moment.
