The former Red Devils legend told Mirror, the trio of Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and Michael Carrick have been the difference during their run of good form, and created a ‘better balance’ in the midfield.
Former England and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has revealed which three players have turned the club’s season around after a disappointing start to the campaign.
He said: “I don’t think Jose knew his best team for a while but in the last few games you’ve seen him consistently starting the three midfielders of Herrera, Carrick and Pogba and I think you’ve seen a better balance in the midfield, so hopefully we can start motoring on now.
“That’s been a problem in the past in terms of working out where the balance is and who the best partnerships and combinations are, and I think he may have found that in those three.
“It frees up Paul, who’s a bit more of a maverick, and means he can roam a bit more.”
Mourinho’s men will be hopeful of continuing their good form when they welcome Middlesbrough to Old Trafford this weekend.
