It is through this history of good trend in the second season that Mourinho targets MU to win the EPL in his second season at the Old Trafford.
According to Portuguese, he is now more familiar with the characteristics of the players at MU. Moreover, the success of winning the Europa League last season also has strengthened the team’s confidence.
It adds to Mourinho's confidence, which so far has always been able to win the league's competition in his second full season when handling FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea again.

"I am now in a better condition to take the team to compete in EPL in the second season as compared to the previous season,” Mourinho added.
