Despite looking set to finish second in the Premier League which will be their best finish in five years and reaching the FA Cup final this season you would be forgiven for thinking Manchester United were a club deep in crisis such has been the level 0f criticism the Old Trafford club have received at times this during this campaign.
United have improved their record against other members of the top six hugely this season, but they have quite often followed up some of their best performances of the season with mediocre displays in the following fixture.
After their impressive win against Liverpool in March they then followed it up with a woeful display against Sevilla which saw Mourinho’s men embarrassingly dumped out the Champions League.
The same occurred recently when the they lost 1-0 at home to Premier League basement boys West Brom after putting in a superb performance to beat Man City in the Manchester Derby just a week before.
Despite United having a decent season on paper the club’s top goal scorer Romelu Lukaku has admitted that his sides inconsistencies have meant that it has seemed like a strange season.
“It was a strange season for us,” Lukaku said.
“If we had more consistency we could have been up there with Manchester City now.
“But we know what we have to improve for next season and winning games like this is what we do.”
“If you look at games we have played against the top six, we have won a lot of them so when we played against Tottenham we were confident as well. We have to keep going like that.”
