Chris Smalling believes "born winner" Jose Mourinho and talismanic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic can lead Manchester United to more trophies this season.
Ibrahimovic struck twice in Sunday's 3-2 EFL Cup win over Southampton, hitting a 30-yard free-kick to open the scoring and heading home an 87th-minute winner after Saints had fought back from two goals down.
The victory means Mourinho becomes the first manager in United's history to win a major trophy in his maiden season at the club, and they remain in the FA Cup and Europa League with a top-six battle in the Premier League ongoing.
Smalling, who led United out as captain at Wembley with Wayne Rooney an unused substitute, reckons the big-name summer arrivals can deliver more silverware - with Ibrahimovic now on 26 goals for the season.
With the belief and confidence we have here, we have got a manager who is a born winner and Ibra finishing chances like that, who knows what can happen?"
He (Ibrahimovic) is our main man. He is our focal point, he is our target man who can hold it up and run in behind so we are lucky to have him.
We will all enjoy it, but we all knew the importance of winning this and we are in so many other competitions as well.
