Having avoided an embarrassing FA Cup slip-up at the hands of Wigan over the course of the weekend, the Manchester United supporters in the Transfer Tavern have been waxing lyrical over the run of form Jose Mourinho has the club on right now.
The Red Devils disposed of local rivals Wigan Athletic with relative ease yesterday, romping up to a 4-0 victory, meaning United have now scored 4+ goals on SIX separate occasions under his stead. Though many of our punters didn’t believe the Portuguese to be a natural fit at Old Trafford, the 54-year-old looks like changing his ways somewhat.
Never regarded as the most expansive coach, the Portuguese looks to at least bringing the goals back to the Theatre of Dreams following the dull few years spent under Louis van Gaal. In fact, United have scored four+ goals two more times in just 36 games under Mourinho than they did during the Dutchman’s TWO years in charge.
4 – Man Utd have scored 4+ goals in a game 6 times under Mourinho (36 games), two more than they did in 103 games under van Gaal. Exciting.

Perhaps Mourinho has some way to go to really prove he’s the right man in the long-term, though he’s certainly on his way.
