Manchester United have been embarrassing - Alan Shearer

Manchester United have been embarrassing - Alan Shearer

While the Magpies boss' tactics may have not racked up the points, by adapting a defensive style when playing the so-called big sides in the league, he frustrates and forces them to play to their best to get any sort of a positive result.

Should United and Mourinho part ways, the choice of his successor will be crucial as the Manchester club look to return to competing with the likes of City and Liverpool in the Premier League title race.

Sources at United have told ESPN FC that they believe Mourinho to be increasingly unhappy and ill-tempered at the club.

"Mourinho's Red "n" White army", hollered fans in the stand. "Jose Mourinho", chimed in another section around J Stand. "Man United will never die".

Neville will be at Old Trafford this weekend and he will be backing Mourinho.

Mourinho was justified in feeling relieved amid a swirl of speculation about him being fired as manager during the last weekend of action for two weeks before the worldwide break.

A failure to do so ahead of the Newcastle game could be viewed by Mourinho as evidence of a loss of faith and therefore a clear signal that his time is up at United.

"I'm furious going back three, four years ago when David Moyes was sacked, when it broke a day before to journalists".

Gary Neville was asked about it after Friday's match between Brighton and West Ham, with the former United favourite saying that "there is something rotten to the core".

In fact, some outlets have reported that the Portuguese coach will be sacked from the Old Trafford hotseat, regardless of the result over Rafa Benitez' side.

"The results they had against the top teams didn't get them points yet this season, but gave them very, very close results and very hard matches for the opposition".

"I think there is too much talk, you put in doubt the honesty and professionalism of the players", he added.

Earlier in the week, The Daily Mirror had published a report that Jose Mourinho's job depending on a victory against Newcastle United this afternoon, and they did exactly that in the 90th (final) minute of the game. I love that football club.

"I think they have all got to share the blame", Shearer said on Match of the Day. I love that football club, I absolutely love it to death, it's been my life, it's given me everything, and I'm not turning on my football club, (but) I have to say something has to change and it isn't the manager, it's above that.

Sanchez's victor also saw United supporters, who had been muted in their backing for Mourinho to that point, sing his name out loud around Old Trafford.
