Mourinho reveals board backing after United's stunning win over Newcastle

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

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

Richard Arnold, who is the right-hand man of United's executive vice-chairman and Mourinho's long time sparring partner Ed Woodward, interrupted a post-match interview to congratulate the Portuguese manager for inspiring United's victory. They are now up to eighth in the Premier League standings, seven points behind leaders Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool who are all having 20 points.

As with Real Madrid and Chelsea, Mourinho is mostly to blame for yet another affair ending badly in the third year.

Former United midfielder Paul Ince says it is too early for United to believe they have turned the corner.

They will have an attempt to better that record on Saturday, however, when they host lowly Newcastle at Old Trafford.

After all, that's what looked likely after an very bad first-half performance meant the team ran toward the dressing room 2-0 down at the break.

It's also been hard for Mourinho to decide on a solid pairing at centre back.

'I said the same thing when Louis van Gaal was there.

"I think Jose is still someone that I look up to and admire because managers go through tough times".

Pogba was stripped of the vice-captaincy by Mourinho before the pair endured a very public training-ground spat following United's defeat by Derby in the Carabao Cup last week. "I said to the players we have be doing better", added Rooney. So I am sure that is getting said behind the scenes now'. The manager can do so much but then it is down to the players on the pitch to produce and probably collectively.

United face a tough run of fixtures in a three-week period after the worldwide break, including Chelsea away in the league and back-to-back matches against Juventus in the Champions League.

In some respects, Saturday felt like the return of United thanks to that comeback, but absolutely nobody expects the problems to dissipate because one struggling team have been defeated.
