Cape Town - Manchester United assistant Rui Faria is confident that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff are capable of bringing back the glory days to Old Trafford.

Faria was once again forced to run the line at Old Trafford as Mourinho was sent to the stands after kicking out angrily at a water bottle, following a decision from referee John Moss to caution Paul Pogba - during the 1-1 draw with West Ham United over the weekend.

The stalemate has left the Red Devils sixth, 11 points behind first placed Chelsea, but Faria is confident of turning the club's fortunes around.

"It's a big club and we are used to big clubs - we also know how to take a team to win," Faria told reporters. "We know that we will do it."

United have failed to win in four league games in a row at Old Trafford for the first time since February 1990, but Faria feels his compatriot has all the experience at the elite level needed - to create success again.

"We are looking to the team and trying to get the best results. We knew the job was not an easy job and we fight to change the things and it's what we'll keep doing.

"We believe in the players, we believe in the team and we believe things will change. And what we are chasing will arrive for sure."\

Meanwhile United's Spanish midfielder, Ander Herrera says that his team will be out for revenge when they welcome West Ham United back to Old Trafford in the League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Kick off is at 22:00.
