Jose Mourinho finally speaks about reports that he will fired

In a five-minute span in the second half, United equalised.

Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez all scored in the final 20 minutes against Rafael Benitez's side and striker Romelu Lukaku has questioned why Mourinho's team can not always produce such thrilling attacking football. When you are in your own city, your own stadium, and you have 75 minutes minimum on the bus, I think that this is quite hard to accept.

Players have been blamed for not trying and the media has been accused of being disrespectful, but it's Mourinho who has been killing Manchester United with his lone-wolf mentality, rash mouth, and outdated tactics that are anti-football.

The man at the United helm has earned a stay of execution on the back of a thrilling 3-2 victory over Newcastle, with battling qualities that have been in short supply helping to secure a much-needed win.

Mourinho made it clear during pre-season that he wanted a new-centre back as he wasn't satisfied with those at his disposal.

The 55-year-old will be desperate to achieve this quickly as United's next run of fixtures are incredibly competitive.

His third seasons in his second spell at Chelsea and Real Madrid also ended in acrimonious departures after poor results and falling out with key players.

The hosts tails were up and on 76 minutes, Anthony Martial netted the equaliser, via a fine finish from a delicious Pogba flicked assist.

"I think the first half was a hard moment for us, ' Fellaini told BT Sport".

It marked a complete turnaround from the performance that caused United to leave at half-time to boos from the Old Trafford crowd. Let us know in the comments section below.

"We couldn't afford another defeat, we couldn't afford another disappointment, especially for the fans".

"They pushed us", Mata told MUTV. "To some extent, yeah, we are but it was an important result because they had to win after all the reports of Mourinho leaving". After the forthcoming worldwide break, their next six games include matches against Chelsea, Juventus twice and Manchester City.

Woodward will be mulling over those figures, particularly as the compensation would drop to just £10m if he stays in place until the end of the season and United don't qualify for the Champions League.

Yet despite the scoreline, the Old Trafford crowd were subjected to 60 minutes of aimless, appalling football by United, who conceded two goals to the Magpies in the opening ten minutes.
