It's quite difficult to judge Jose Mourinho's time with Manchester United so far.

Two-and-a-bit years in, he's lifted two trophies and taken them to their highest Premier League finish since Sir Alex Ferguson.

On the other hand, he hasn't played the kind of football the fans dream of and there has been too much focus on off-field issues.

Mourinho's third season has gotten off to a strange start, with United nine points off the top of the table already as they head into the Manchester Derby on Sunday.

But then they've just beaten Juventus in Turin, as well as completing dramatic turnarounds against Newcastle United and Bournemouth.

None of those looked likely but Mourinho pulled all of them off - so how can we predict Sunday's game with Manchester City?

That game and the next few months could very well shape the way the season goes and what the team is fighting for.

And according to United legend Nemanja Vidic, we're starting to see something new from the side as they head into this key period.

Nemanja Vidic won virtually everything as a United player.

"Manchester United in their history always played attacking, attractive football," said Vidic on beIN Sports.

"I think in the last few games what I like about Manchester United is they've started to be more positive with Mourinho's team selection. 

"I think [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford, [Juan] Mata up front... it has not happened many times playing together. I think the mentality is of not just defensively but also they are thinking more towards the goal.

Anthony Martial is in great form for United.

"That's pretty attacking football from Manchester United - particularly if you have Luke Shaw on the left-hand side and Ashley Young on the right. That's more attacking and I like to see that."

Martial, in particular, seems to be benefitting from the added attack at United - the Frenchman is looking to score in his fifth consecutive Premier League game this weekend.

That's something that looked unthinkable not long ago; could United fans finally be getting what they wanted from Mourinho?
