An animated Mourinho reacted with fury, screaming at his players and gesticulating wildly.

According to the Mirror, Mourinho has lost the confidence of the board with "senior United sources" telling the paper that the Portuguese coach's almost two-and-a-half-years in charge will end whatever the outcome of the league game against the Magpies.

Substitute Alexis Sanchez grabbed the victor with a dramatic 90th-minute header, giving the hosts what had seemed like an unlikely victory and sending Old Trafford wild.

Mourinho was relieved but still irritated by weeks of criticism.

"It´s ridiculous talk to say they don´t play for the manager, they play for the club". If there is some difficulty to have the agreement of the Brexit, it's my fault. "It is a life I love, and since I was a kid I work for this".

A United fan was seen holding a sign that said 'STILL UNITED WITH JOSE!' at the start of the contest, and midway through the first half a section of Red Devils supporters sang "Jose's right, the board are s****".

The goals led Mourinho to take Eric Bailly off after just 19 minutes, replacing him with Mata, and his defensive adjustments did not end there.

Mata, though, pulled a goal back when he curled in a free kick in the 70th.

Martial equalized five minutes later with a fierce low drive following an exchange of passes with Paul Pogba.

"I have said for many years, you can lose matches but cannot lose your dignity or pride and that it's not about the manager or the players, it's about the club and the fans".

"We know that to improve our position we need to win these three points", he confessed. He has scored 20 goals already for LA Galaxy, and is in excellent form.

"Normally it happens if a team-mate is injured, but today we needed something", Mata said of his early introduction.

Newcastle are winless in their seven Premier League games this season - only in 1898-99 (first 10) and 2015-16 (first 8) have they gone longer without a win from the start of a top-flight campaign.

Bournemouth won at Watford 4-0, Wolverhampton won at Crystal Palace 1-0, and Huddersfield moved off the bottom of the standings by drawing at Burnley 1-1.
