Jose Mourinho did not look very pleased after Manchester United's performance at Wembley, but a League Cup win against Southampton promises more silverware.
Having drawn more games than any other side in the Premier League, Mourinho's side has found it difficult to go up in the points table. Mourinho’s team is placed in the sixth position in the English Premier League table since their victory over Swansea last year in November.
However, their performance has seen substantial improvement since then. Interestingly, the Red Devils began to gain momentum after being thrashed by arch rivals Chelsea 4-0 at Stanford Bridge last October.
Having lost just one match since November, Mourinho's men have displayed composure and flair for attacking football, something that had been missing since Sir Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford. However, the big question still hangs over Manchester United: Do they have the ability to win games?
Mourinho's men, if they play to potential can still find a place in the top-four in the Premier League. They are still in the title race for FA Cup and UEFA Europa League - a possible treble awaits the "special one".
In order to win a treble, United will have to be at their best and, critically, they will have to be consistent. Mourinho can only hope the big fish -- Ibrahimovic, Pogba, and Mkhitaryan fire at the right time to take the former English champions back to the glory days.
