Arsenal legend praises Pogba contribution in Manchester United comeback win

Man Utd defeat Newcastle 3-2 in Premier League

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho survived a wild weekend at Old Trafford to escape what he described as a "manhunt" after a awful start to the season.

The home side were two goals down before they staged an incredible comeback. Less sarcastically, the change is that United managed to win a game, destroying Rafael Benitez's soul in a 3-2 win, crowned by an injury-time victor from Alexis Sanchez.

It is understood that Mourinho wants that reassurance to be made public.

However, the attacker earned hero status on Saturday evening when he came off the bench in the second half to fire home the victor for Manchester United against the Magpies. Not for the title, but Mourinho's tenure at Old Trafford.

Even the three players who dug Mourinho out of the biggest of holes - Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez - have had their issues with the manager.

'They are all over the place this year because they are constantly hearing the manager tell them they're not good enough.

This was only the second home win in six for Mourinho's men.

Eric Bailly's happiness at the win comes with a tinge of disappointment, though, after Mourinho replaced him with Mata after 19 minutes, meaning midfielder Scott McTominay fulfilled the role of a makeshift centre-back for the remainder of the half.

The United States argues the sanctions should remain in place until North Korea has fully and verifiably denuclearized. Pompeo would also travel to Japan, South Korea and China on October 6-8 to brief them about his visit, she added.


The former Real Madrid boss, who won three consecutive Champions Leagues at the Santiago Bernabeu, is widely considered the favourite to succeed Jose Mourinho if he leaves Old Trafford.

Mata dedicated the win to the fans and said they don't deserve what they are going through this season... These are the games Mourinho's team will be judged in.

"I'm amazed", said Mourinho when asked about their backing.

The Chile worldwide had been finding himself in the firing line this season after failing to produce consistent performances for the Red Devils under Jose Mourinho.

"Again, this was the goal, You see Newcastle, no one is on him, and that is the little awareness there, the quality, that is what he's got".

"I'm very happy for the team, for us, but especially for the fans".

The Portuguese coach was expected to be sacked regardless of the result against Rafael Benitez's side, but the team's dramatic 3-2 victory has changed things for the time being.
