Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are confident that this season still holds another trophy with them reaching the last eight of the Europa League.
Indeed, they seemed pretty comfortable against Rostov last night as they sealed their progression with a 1-0 home win after their 1-1 draw out in Russia.
Juan Mata got the goal in the end but the game was hardly a classic as United went through to book a tie with Anderlecht in the quarter finals.
Jose Mourinho, then, just seems to know how to get results in these competitions and his home form in particular is formidable.
Indeed, such proof can be found for that via OptaJoe on Twitter:

Hugely impressive, then, and you have to think that if United can play well in their respective away legs in the Europa League they could be on for their second major trophy of the season.
