Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez on Manchester United's struggles: "In all my time in England, I don't remember any fragile Manchester United team".

Jose Mourinho is demanding the public backing of Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward before Saturday's Old Trafford clash with Newcastle, sources have told ESPN FC.

United were woeful in the first half and were two down inside 10 minutes, but looked a completely different team after the interval as Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Sanchez turned the game on its head in the final 20 minutes.

Three minutes later the visitors doubled their lead with Japanese forward Yoshinori Muto wriggling clear of Ashley Young and firing home.

The match can also be found on MUTV for those who subscribe to the club's official channel, while in the United States viewers can use FuboTV to stream the game live.

It was a move that even saw the likes of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic slot into the defence. Newcastle has yet to win a single Premier League match this season, with just two points through the first seven games of the campaign. But they have to take advantage of the good feeling following this result.

Newcastle battled hard for their first win of the season, but their defensive frailties were exposed and their inability to make the most of some half-chances punished.


Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has blasted a reported decision to sack Jose Mourinho as "an absolute disgrace".

It was a performance of genuine heart, and one that reminded us Mourinho still has something to give.

Mourinho is 11/4 to be the next boss of Inter while you can get him at odds of 7/2 to take over as the Portugal national boss.

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.

"The way they started the game was absolutely panicking".

During the summer, Mourinho was unable to bring in as many players as he wanted to and a simmering row with Paul Pogba resulted in the Frenchman being stripped of the United captaincy.

Earlier, Mourinho responded to the criticism coming his way by claiming United overachieved in finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, adding he always expected this campaign to be more hard. Juventus then visit Old Trafford three days later.
