Jose Mourinho's comments after Newcastle win to be investigated by FA

Jose Mourinho's comments after Newcastle win to be investigated by FA”

Mourinho will hope that United can retain their momentum through the worldwide break, with Chelsea and Juventus to come immediately after.

Zidane is still favourite to be the next Manchester United manager at 8/11, whilst other names such as Antonio Conte, Mauricio Pochettino and even Brendan Rodgers follow him in the betting.

The former Real Madrid boss has been linked with succeeding Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford in recent weeks. The victor came in the 90th minute, when substitute Alexis Sanchez headed home and a much-relieved United ended a run of four matches without a win in all competitions.

"It was special", attacking midfielder Mata said.

So often criticised for preaching a cautious approach, it was only when Mourinho's men threw caution to the wind when 2-0 down that they began to look like the United of old.

"Players have changed", Ince said.

"At half-time we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team". We were meant to come back, meant to win.

Arnold is United's managing director so he would play a role if Mourinho were to be sacked.

Mourinho has struggled at Old Trafford this season and could well be axed before the campaign is over.

Manchester United come from behind to give under-pressure Mourinho victory

"I do not think that he will manage in England", he told the Journal du Dimanche. Even though it felt very hard we did it. "To some extent, yeah, we are but it was an important result because they had to win after all the reports of Mourinho leaving". I will say that today the victory is a pride victory.

"I felt as soon as it kicked off, something inside me was meant to be".

'You can fall out after the match, but when the game's going on, liven up, play with pride, play with energy, play with spirit.

"Normally, it happens if a team-mate is injured, but today we needed something", Mata said of his early introduction.

"We can not upset, because we did so well for a while, and we deserved more".

The suggestion led to Pogba dropping into a role just ahead of defence, Nemanja Matic playing in central defence, and Scott McTominay coming off in place of Fellaini.

While Mourinho's Reds celebrated, second-bottom Newcastle let a first win of the season slip out of their grasp. He spent all summer groaning about a lack of support in the transfer market, then talked about how he had overachieved with last year's squad, one of the most expensive ever put together.

"For big boys like me, it's no problem but for younger people, I think it's a problem and the first half showed that. We gave ourselves a chance and we're disappointed not to have carried the performance out for 90 minutes".
