Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that there has been a “clear evolution” in his team over the two seasons since he arrived in the summer of 2016.
United are set to achieve their highest Premier League finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement five years ago, requiring just seven points from four games to guarantee second.
Mourinho’s side are three points clear of Liverpool in second place with a game in hand and have an FA Cup Final date with Chelsea to look forward to on May 19.
Despite winning the UEFA Europa League and EFL Cup in his first season at the helm, the 55-year-old insists United have improved this term.
“Domestically last season we won the League Cup and now we are in the FA Cup Final,” he said. “This season has been better than last season. Last season we won the Europa League and if we played Europa League this year we’d win it too, but we played Champions League and we were not good enough to win it.”
He continued: “This season we’re going to finish in the top four, I believe and I hope second. More points, victories, goals, fewer goals conceded, not consistently but many times better football. There has been a clear evolution in this team.”
