Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: I'm not the only one to blame

Mata pulled one back three minutes later, chipping a free kick from 20 yards over the wall and curled it into the bottom near corner, and after a flurry of chances, including attempts by Fellaini, Chris Smalling and Pogba, it was Anthony Martial who provided the equaliser in the 76th minute.

United's pressure did not relent and Sanchez responded to his own critics with a fine header from Young's deep cross from the right, prompting resounding chants in support of Mourinho from the buoyant home crowd.

But Mourinho admitted that United's current form was unacceptable, with anything other than a victory on Saturday leaving them without a win in five consecutive home games for the first time since 1990. The Ivory Coast centre-half was drawn out of position for Newcastle's opener and failed to clear the ball into the box that led to their second.

The result lifts them only into eighth place in the table, but the impact it could have on Mourinho's future could be hugely important.

"Forget Cardiff or Huddersfield it would be Newcastle because they can't score a goal".

Given the widespread claims of players falling out with the manager at Old Trafford, this was a result that owed everything to Mourinho's decisions.

Trump said that her husband's alleged derogatory comment about African countries did not come up on her trip. But when asked about the topic, Trump said she wished to discuss her trip and not her fashion choices.

The United boss is certain this team will improve and confident of getting back to winning ways against Newcastle, especially if his players display similar effort and commitment to Tuesday's Champions League draw with Valencia.

No one suggests that Pogba is unhappy in Manchester, but there have been suggestions that he's unhappy with life under United boss Jose Mourinho.

Paul Merson already looks foolish regarding his remarks on Newcastle United's upcoming clash with Manchester United due to the remarks of Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho knew he needed a win in today's crucial Premier League encounter with his job on the line.

Moved back into central defence by Jose Mourinho, in an odd move, Pogba dictated the game, but also moved forward when United attacked and was involved in both the Reds' second and third goal.

Those rumours, however, were later quashed by the club themselves, but the feeling still remains that Mourinho is living on borrowed time in the Old Trafford dugout.
