Mourinho slams critics after Man United fightback

Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho gestures during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Newcastle at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on October 6, 2018. "If there (are) some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault. It is the life I love and since I was a kid I work for this".

And reports on Friday suggested he could lose his job regardless of the result against Newcastle - although BBC Sport understands he still retains the backing of the board.

But Man United have upcoming fixtures against Chelsea, Juventus and Manchester City; Mourinho and his side will be seriously tested after the worldwide break.

"Again, this was the goal, You see Newcastle, no one is on him, and that is the little awareness there, the quality, that is what he's got".

"They were 2-0 down, they had to do what they were doing".

Newcastle took the lead in the seventh minute, opening up United's defence easily after Ayoze Perez found Kenedy and the Brazilian burst goalwards before calmly drilling past David De Gea.

United were woeful in the first half and were two down inside 10 minutes but looked a completely different team after the interval as Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Sanchez turned the game on its head in the final 20 minutes. "Even older players commit mistakes that are not normal". We still talk, and our relationship is good. We didn't promise that we would win the match.

"The way they started the game was absolutely panicking".

'We have to perform much better.

Cardiff were reduced to 10 when Joe Ralls was sent off in the 58th minute at Wembley Stadium.

United's attack did the defence no favours in the 50th minute, with Pogba denied by Newcastle Martin Dubravka from 25 yards despite a deflection and Matic missing the second chance, on an open net, by sending his attempt over the crossbar.

Huddersfield rallied to draw with Burnley for only its third point.
