That form has lifted United ahead of Saturday's clash against Wolves, yet growing optimism is underpinned by the manager's sustained belief - first uttered in pre-season as transfer frustration grew - that this will be a tough campaign.
"We know Manchester United's team we know what we're going to face and we prepare for the competition".
"You see the level of the teams - you see Liverpool squad, City squad, Chelsea squad, Tottenham squad, Arsenal improving". It's going to be hard. I think the team is more compact, more solid, the spirit, the cooperation, the empathy, the communication - all of that improves in the team and good results bring confidence and I think we are improving as a team.
"But I think the happiness, the confidence, the self-esteem was what pushed him to play in our first match against Leicester nearly without training and he played a very good match".
"I think this is more the influence of the moment".
"A team that yesterday looked very bad, today looks very good and yesterday looked very good, today looks very bad". "If you change it doesn't make sense, no matter who you play", he said.

Paul Pogba has revealed that he was "proud" of Diogo Dalot's impressive debut for Manchester United.
Instead, Dalot will be given another opportunity against Derby in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
"I want him, in this process of adaptation, to play totally fresh, so he's not playing tomorrow", said Mourinho.
"Playing for Manchester United is hard enough for a kid of 19-years-old, coming from another country and after an important injury and surgery".
Wolves continue to play bold and compelling football, and were it not for poor finishing, especially in the defeat to Leicester, they might be looking down in the table on Mourinho's side at present.
