'It's a manhunt', says Mourinho, slamming critics after United escape

Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring their third goal with Marouane Fellaini on Saturday

Nobody has done more to undermine, expose or demotivate this United squad than Mourinho himself.

The pre-match talk was dominated by Mourinho's future, with the club insisting they will remain patient with their manager, dismissing reports he would be sacked after the game.

"As a friend of mine was saying to me this morning, if tomorrow it rains in London it is my fault, " Mourinho said. When you are in your own city, your own stadium, and you have 75 minutes minimum on the bus, I think that this is quite hard to accept.

The concern for United is that this is not new for Mourinho.

Zidane played for Cannes, Bordeaux and Juventus before joining moving to Madrid in 2001 and retiring after five seasons.

In saving Mourinho's job, at least for now, a rousing second-half display at Old Trafford was in some ways an indictment of his time in charge.

The 55-year-old Portuguese coach looked doomed on Saturday evening when the Red Devils found themselves 2-0 down at home to Newcastle United within 10 minutes. We promised we would give absolutely everything without any fear, without any pressure, just the pressure of giving everything and of course they gave everything.

US Vice President Mike Pence has called on Google to end its censored Chinese Search engine the "Dragonfly" project. He was to accuse Beijing of convincing three Latin American nations to sever ties with Taiwan and recognize China.

Mourinho, who had sent Juan Mata on after just 19 minutes, sprinted down the tunnel at half-time and made further changes, bringing on Marouane Fellaini and playing Paul Pogba in a deeper role to have him see more of the ball.

The hosts tails were up and on 76 minutes, Anthony Martial netted the equaliser, via a fine finish from a delicious Pogba flicked assist. "All the players committed mistakes that were not normal".

"I'm amazed by that, I don't want that, if I could tell them please don't do it I would say that, I think this is not about me is about the football club, the club they love, and about the club we represent with all the honour and dignity".

But is the victory short-term balm or a turning point in United's season?

"These football clubs, they are not made only of just victories and just hard moments, but always with pride". "So are we papering over the cracks because they came back?"

Mata dedicated the win to the fans and said they don't deserve what they are going through this season...

Presuming he is still in charge, Mourinho returns to Chelsea after the global break, where he has lost in all three visits as United manager, with no goals scored.
