Manchester United have been embarrassing - Alan Shearer

"Yes, the way they came back to beat Newcastle from 2-0 down will give them confidence".

It has been claimed in some quarters that Manchester United's comeback win over Newcastle United on Saturday could have saved Mourinho from being sacked.

"I think a lot of wickedness and a clear man-hunting which I think in football is too much".

"Today, I think it's an unbelievable feeling for him to score the winning goal in a comeback".

Given the state of relations between the board and manager at Old Trafford, it was the closest thing to a public show of support that José Mourinho was going to get.

The concern for United is that this is not new for Mourinho.

"We should not forget these are the same defenders who had the second best defensive record in the Premier League last season, conceding just one more goal than Manchester City". As Richard Arnold walked down the tunnel after Manchester United's breathtaking win over Newcastle United, Mourinho spotted the managing director, one of the people who will decide his fate, and beckoned him.

Arnold, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward's right-hand man, interrupted a post-match interview to congratulate the United boss following the dramatic 3-2 win on Saturday evening.

"At halftime we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team and that is fantastic", he said, adding that he would have preferred not to hear his own name.

But is the victory short-term balm or a turning point in United's season?

While many have pointed fingers at Pogba and his performances in recent months, speaking on Match of the Day on Saturday night, Arsenal legend Ian Wright was quick to point out how integral the World Cup victor was to the United performance.

Let us know in the comments.

"They pushed us", Mata told MUTV.

And United only axed the Scot when it was confirmed they had missed out on a place in the top four. After the forthcoming global break, their next six games include matches against Chelsea, Juventus twice and Manchester City.
