Luke Shaw: I knew Manchester United would secure comeback win against Newcastle

Mourinho gave a short and terse news conference earlier in the day, after which Neville said the 55-year-old "looked fed up" following heavy criticism of his side's poor run of form, having won just three of their last nine games in all competitions. Undoubtedly, that is a trend that needs to stop.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to be sacked as Manchester United manager this weekend.

"The way they started the game was absolutely panicking".

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

United's pressure did not relent and Sanchez responded to his own critics with a fine header from Young's deep cross from the right, prompting resounding chants in support of Mourinho from the buoyant home crowd.


- This is Newcastle's worst-ever start to a top-flight season after eight games in terms of points (2 - 3pts for a win).

"I think at half-time we opened our hearts".

It comes after a week in which Mourinho said some players "care more than others" in the build-up to the goalless Champions League draw with Valencia. From the hard time they gave Martin Edwards, to the protests against BSkyB's attempted takeover, to the green and gold scarves campaign against the Glazers: Old Trafford does not stay passive when fans don't like the direction of their club.

"I think, not just a better manager, but it makes me even a better person because I understand things in the human nature nowadays and in the industry where I work", Mourinho said.

Sanchez's victor also saw United supporters, who had been muted in their backing for Mourinho to that point, sing his name out loud around Old Trafford.


Jose Mourinho: No, I was advised by the structure of the club that from the hotel to the training ground it would be probably a minimum of 75 minutes. I go to London now and if it rains tomorrow in London then it is my fault.

"One touch play. Movement". "They are playing Football Manager with the biggest club in the world".

Man United will be hoping to dispatch with Benitez's men, if only to quell talk of this season's derailment with less than the first fifth of the full fixture list out of the way. It's my life, it's a life I love, it's a life I worked since I was a kid.

"In my football memories, I remember [as manager of Chelsea] I beat Liverpool at Anfield 4-0 and I was amazed the stadium was singing their song, but now I am in a situation where I'm losing 2-0 at home in a match everyone knows is important for us to win, and they were fantastic".
