Mourinho was hugely touted to have lost the backing of top Red Devils executives, and a loss against Newcastle could have booted him from Old Trafford.

The Portuguese is ready to right his wrongs at outfit, and recently have displayed a softer side of himself to his squad to avoid further upset.
Nonetheless, the United manager ready to shop in January and Atletico Madrid central defender, who also functions as left-back Lucas Hernández has suggested he could leave the La Liga outfit in the next transfer window.
Lucas, who is pushing for a big contract renewal has warned he could exit the Madrid outfit if the right offer comes along.
Some suggestions floating about revealed it is a threat to force Atletico Madrid to hand him a sweet deal.
United, alongside other top European outfits have reportedly joined the fray for the youngster’s services, says Marca.
Lucas plays for the French national team Les Bleus. He made his first international debut in France’s World Cup 2-1 group stage win against Australia.
