Man United sinks Newcastle 3-2 in thrilling comeback

Mike Ashley owner of Newcastle United looks o during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Leicester City

"And the players have to take their share of the blame because they can put the effort in like they did in the second half against Newcastle".

Mourinho has in turn come for stinging criticism from ex-players, with former United midfielder Paul Scholes accusing him of "embarrassing" the club.

"We know that our opponent needs points too, Rafa is brilliant at analysing the qualities of his opponents ad trying to beat them", Mourinho added of his rival.

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.

None of them will be getting carried away.

The many concerns of those fans who fill Old Trafford every week will not evaporate during the week-long worldwide break, but at least they went home smiling after a super comeback.

United fought back from 2-0 down to defeat Newcastle United 3-2 in the Premier League on Saturday with Alexis Sanchez grabbing the 90th-minute victor.

Muto, making his first Premier League start, scored Newcastle's second goal in the 10th minute at Old Trafford.

Newcastle manager Benitez attempted to pick up his demoralised players in the dressing room after the defeat, which left the club 19th in the Premier League.

The Italian has a track record of taking Mourinho's teams and helping them rediscover their mojo. They have significant problems of their own and their sustained disdain for owner Mike Ashley was made plain with chants of "Get out of our club".

"At halftime we had a good conversation".

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

"I'm amazed by that but I don't want that", he said. I've got to stand up and say "I'm not good enough to do this". I think the fans deserved to win.

"It happened that we started nervous, the team in my opinion didn't cope well with the pressure of the man-hunting", Mourinho said.

The support is not unconditional.

Benitez pointed to their collective impact and also his players' tiring legs as reasons for the match being turned on its head.

United have long courted Pochettino and the Old Trafford hot seat would give the Argentinian the opportunity to mould one of the world's greatest clubs in his image with the resources he's unlikely to enjoy at Tottenham any time soon.
