On the other hand, the nature of a cup competition is that it could be Mourinho's (only) salvation. It's not uncommon for teams doing poorly in the league to perform well in a cup. See Liverpool 2005, for example. Winning the CL might be United's best chance of qualifying for next season's event, though it won't be nearly as probable as the Europa League a couple of years ago when a similar situation applied.
