Manchester United are on a march.
Mourinho has led the Red Devils to an 8th successive victory and fans in the Transfer Tavern are clamouring for another on Tuesday night.
It is a good sign for United this season that Mourinho can call on Rooney, Martial and Rashford to come into the side and help maintain their momentum. Each were involved in the four goals against Reading on Saturday, and they all could have had more.
While the Royals never really threatened the Red Devils, the four-time League Cup winners were happy to let them have the ball.
Mourinho set up United to be compact and utilise the speed of Rashford and Martial to cause Reading difficulties.
While Mourinho has settled on his chosen XI in recent months, the 53-year-old still tinkers with his tactics to make sure his side have the edge over the opposition.
With Mike Phelan gone, the League Cup semi-final will be new Head Coach Marco Silva’s second game in charge.
Fans of the Red Devils in the Transfer Tavern are expecting Mourinho’s consummate knowledge of the game to help get one over the former Olympiacos coach, and take a commanding lead into the semi-final second-leg.
Let me know if you agree with this United XI in the comments below….
