Juan Mata says Manchester United fans do not "deserve everything that is going on" and hopes the last-gasp comeback win against Newcastle gives the team a mental lift. Undoubtedly, that is a trend that needs to stop.

Jose Mourinho insisted he was still the man to turn Manchester United's ailing season around as Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper reported he would be sacked regardless of Saturday's result against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

"When you think who they are, what they are, what brand they are, they have been on the front pages, the back pages and it has not been good".

Mourinho reacted quickly and replaced Eric Bailly with Mata after just 18 minutes but the momentum was well and truly with Newcastle. They made the difference. "We want them to win leagues and be competitive".
