Jose Mourinho is feeling good after Manchester United handled the most congested time of the year in perfect fashion.
The Red Devils are winners of six in-a-row after a 2-0 win over 10-man West Ham, sending them within a point of the Top Four before Arsenal and Spurs play later this week.

And now he’s feeling confident ahead of the next PL match day, a high-profile match-up at Old Trafford against hated rivals Liverpool (United has an FA Cup match versus Reading and EFL Cup semi first leg versus Hull first, both at home).
“I have the feeling we can win the next match. We don’t chase records, we chase good performances and points. That’s what we chase.
“We know Chelsea or Tottenham are going lose points or both, like last week we knew Liverpool or Manchester City would lose points. We have played so well but we drew too much and now six matches, 18 points, exactly what we need.”
Mourinho also said the game wasn’t perfect, but he felt very good given the three matches within seven days.
There was 3-1 at home to Sunderland, 2-1 at home to Middlesbrough, and now 2-0 at West Ham.
“Congratulations to everyone on the pitch because I was disappointed with some mistakes, with some bad decisions, but that’s typical of fatigue and there are no miracles.”
