Robbie Elliott gives advice to Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez on Twitter

Robbie Elliott gives advice to Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez on Twitter

Benitez, who was happy with his team performance, said Fellaini and Sanchez changed the game.

And Shaw has revealed he knew United's comeback was possible from the moment the team emerged from the dressing room.

"I can see a team that everyone was expecting to be higher but it's a question of time, like us".

"I felt as soon as it kicked off, something inside me was meant to be". We didn't promise that we would win the match. "There is a lot of wickedness and a clear manhunt", Mourinho said.

"The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone". Having heard boos ringing out around the stadium when the first half concluded, Mourinho then heard his name being sung loudly following Sanchez's goal and another sign was then visible in the crowd, reading 'JOSE IS A victor! So, we made a decision to come direct to the stadium early in the morning.

"There is no reason we shouldn't be like that - the quality we have, which I've said in the past we have but we're not utilising".

"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".

"If this is true, we don't know if it's true but if this is true and Jose Mourinho is going to walk out at Old Trafford tomorrow, as nearly like a dead man walking, those fans will absolutely turn towards that boardroom".

"We came out different, the way we were much better in the second much quicker and more direct, and more like the United in the old days".

Weeks of speculation and scrutiny came to a head on Friday evening, when the Daily Mirror reported that the 55-year-old was set to be sacked, irrespective of the outcome of Saturday's Premier League clash with Newcastle.

"There was a good atmosphere, the players are fine, everybody was relaxed and that's it". They scored a great goal.

"They continued pushing and pushing, and it was hard to defend".

"I'm reacting maybe a little bit emotionally, but I don't really care, to be honest with you".

He seems unable to find a solution to a situation which he believes has a number of influences, but he is now looking less special than ever and a loss against Newcastle would be the worst run of form, with five games without a win, since 1999.

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 global break.
