Manchester United’s win over Leicester City has put them within touching distance of the top four in the English Premier League. They have Arsenal and Liverpool in their sights and you get the impression they could well overtake them in the weeks to come.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata were the heroes in a comprehensive 3-0 win at the King Power Stadium. Mourinho’s men were on top form throughout and never really looked like losing.
Not losing has become something of a hallmark for this United side and in fact, as this stat from Squawka shows, no other team in Europe’s top 5 leagues is quite as unbeatable as Mourinho’s side right now.
Man Utd are now unbeaten in 15 consecutive league games, the longest active unbeaten run in Europe's top 5 leagues.

They’re getting the job done like no-one else. Just think where they’d be if they’d managed to turn some of those draws into narrow wins.
It’s clear Jose Mourinho is moving the team in the right direction and if they keep this up then UEFA Champions League qualification seems like a certainty.
