Mourinho believes his side are now demonstrating a killer instinct they lacked last season, having averaged three goals per game so far in the Premier League - an improvement on their 1.42 goal ratio in his first campaign in charge.

Mourinho told Sky Sports that the decision was a no brainer, "easy" and it did not require much thinking.

He explained, though, why being able to plan pre-season to his specifications helps.

The Belgium global scored 25 league goals last season, and he has netted six in six in all competitions for United.

That can be seen to be partly due to an excellent pre-season and transfer window.

Gaining momentum with each match, Manchester United continues to progress although it is finally possible to make sure of this at least after one other duel with the traditional top 4.
