Mourinho's current confidence is largely because he feels United are a club that now carries his influence.
"I was thinking I needed three transfer windows, but after two I have a good group and the club as a football club is much better equipped.
"We are much better organised at every level. The medical department is better, the logistics, how we organise training routines, the analysis department.
"I am doing the work that I've done with every other club so we go for it this season. We are going to try to win the title, we are going to try to give a hard fight to the top teams in the Champions League and as you know I always loved the English cups."
