What Jose Mourinho asked Paul Pogba before Newcastle comeback

Mourinho says 'manhunt' against him affecting Manchester United players - video

A terrific free-kick from Juan Mata got the home-side back in the game, which was followed up by Paul Pogba and compatriot Anthony Martial linking up together to bring the Red Devils onto level footing.

"In my football memories, I remember when I beat Liverpool at Anfield 4-0 and I was amazed that 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 incredible".

Laugable on two counts. Whilst as for deserving better, the support the home fans gave their team was nearly non-existent until that later rally.

"Then we spoke for eight minutes about other things that I thought would let the players be a little bit more free to face the second half and it became 3-2".

Finally, Chilean striker, Alexis Sanchez, delivered the victor in the stoppage time, to give The Red Devils, a much-needed victory.

"At half time we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team. I think they saw [on Saturday] that we tried everything and we came back and from the mental point of view it was a very important three points".

Mirror also give another explanation for United's hesitancy to get rid of Mourinho, as they feel there is now no viable replacement out there.

"We could have done a little bit better, we didn't score".

McTominay started in midfield, moved to centre back and did not reappear for the second half after struggling once again in an unfamiliar role.

"At halftime we had a good conversation". They don't deserve everything that is going on, so they deserve to see a team like today.

"We felt that if we scored, [winning] was not impossible, especially at Old Trafford", Mata said.

"It's massive for him", said United defender Luke Shaw, who may miss England's next internationals with a knock picked up on Saturday. Even though it felt very hard we did it. "It was very hard to come back but we created more chances than we scored". It would be stretching it to say this was proof Mourinho retains the complete support of his players, but you can not ignore the effort they gave in the second half.
