Manchester United fans were definitely pleased with Anthony Martial following his performance in the win against Newcastle.

He never made clear why, but it's safe to say he was being sarcastic.

Keegan has warned Newcastle supporters that boycotting the club in protest against Mike Ashley could lead to relegation.

United are without a win in four matches in all competitions and when put to Mourinho that such a run was not acceptable for a club of this size, he said: "Yes, I accept (it is not good enough)".

Old Trafford was rocking in the second half as United fans stuck with their team and, on the whole, under-fire Mourinho. "I don't want that".

What unfolds is Neville launching into a five-minute tirade against player-power at the club, executives playing "Football Manager" with the biggest team in the world and his belief that certain people that are running Manchester United are 'rotten to the core'.

Asked at his pre-match press conference on Friday if he felt he had taken United as far as he could last season, Mourinho said: "No".

McSally said that, if no additional information emerges from the Federal Bureau of Investigation review, she supports confirming Kavanaugh.

The support is not unconditional.

Mourinho made three changes to his starting line-up, with Ashley Young coming in at right-back and assuming the captain's armband in place of Antonio Valencia, who dropped out of the squad entirely, while Scott McTominay replaced Marouane Fellaini in midfield.

One win over a struggling side will convince nobody, but United were hugely impressive in the last half hour and had bombarded the away goal before Mata's breakthrough. Sanchez subsequently came on for Rashford in the 68th minute, two minutes before United's comeback - capped by the Chilean's 90th-minute victor - began with Mata netting from a free-kick.

The club now lie eighth in the Premier League, six points off Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table, having played a game more.

"Sometimes things are not just in the manager's hands", he said.

However, smart substitutions, a gripping half-time team-talk, and rarely seen before attacking display allowed his side to pull off a sensational comeback and come out 3-2 winners. I think, really, some of the boys, in spite of them not being the man that is hunted, I think that they are not coping well with it.
