Mourinho says 'manhunt' against him affecting Manchester United players

An under-pressure Jose Mourinho saw his Manchester United side fight back from two goals down to earn a dramatic 3-2 win against Newcastle at Old Trafford yesterday.

That was the first time in the Premier League era that United had conceded two goals, at home, in the opening ten minutes of a game.

What a moment. United needed this entering the worldwide break, but will it be enough for Mourinho to keep his job?

If the team finish outside the Champions League positions, the cost of sacking him would be around 11 million euros, a lower and more acceptable figure at Old Trafford. I told you last season was a fantastic season for us and if you want something more, in pre-season I also said that this season was going to be very hard.

There's no reason why we can't be like every game that.

And, it would seem, the United fans are in complete agreement.

None of them will be getting carried away.

Newcastle would not typically be expected to win an away outing against "big six" opposition, but Rafa Benitez's Magpies are yet to pick up a victory in any competition this season. Journalists don't break stories of this nature unless they're absolutely certain.

Juan Mata quickly replaced Eric Bailly, bizarrely placing Scott McTominay at centre-back with the Scotsman proceeding to struggle and being subbed off himself at half-time.

The confidence of the visiting fans belied the fact that they had yet to win any of their seven league games so far.

'What Mourinho has to understand is the game has evolved. They have significant problems of their own and their sustained disdain for owner Mike Ashley was made plain with chants of "Get out of our club".

Any other birds after midnight with Taco Bell items. "We will hold them in captivity until they sober up and then set them free". Techar said the birds would sober up themselves, and that there was no need for locals to call police if they found one.

"This is new, it makes me not just a better manager but even a better person".

"They had some unbelievable chances Man Utd, Matic misses that which is a sitter for me".

"This is the first time I've seen in football man-hunting", Mourinho told BT Sport.

"I beat Liverpool at Anfield 4-0 and I was amazed to hear the stadium singing Liverpool songs". I think about how the club is being operated. There were also some boos amid the disbelief at half time for his side were woeful.

The Englishman was handed yet another start by Jose Mourinho and was nearly on the losing side at Old Trafford.

Mourinho looks set to get the global break to turn things around after attempting to avoid a fifth successive match without a win when Rafael Benitez's Newcastle visit Old Trafford.

Sanchez came off the bench to score the victor.

"The first half was a hard moment for us, but we were more aggressive in the second half and we played more direct and created more chances". He left along with Thiago Silva to join Paris Saint-Germain, with the money on offer just too good to turn down for players and club alike.

The under-pressure Portuguese manager may agree with Merson's assessment of the Magpies' current attacking threat however it's clear that he wouldn't choose to play Benitez's side ahead of anyone, as it's a hard game.

The Man United manager shared that his side were expecting a hard game when they host Rafa Benitez's side at Old Trafford and heaped praise on the Spanish manager.
