Mourinho reveals board backing after United's stunning win over Newcastle

Manchester United's Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez celebrates with Manchester United's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini after scoring the team's third goal during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and

The Blues have been in scintillating form since the start of the season and it is all set to be a cracker as Jose Mourinho takes on his former club.

Yet Spanish outlet Ok Diario claim United may not sack Mourinho just yet.

And Sanchez proved the hero, scoring his first Premier League goal since March 31 by heading home in the 90th minute before United waited out five minutes of added time.

"The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone", said Mourinho.

Pressure has been mounting on Mourinho following a poor run of results and reports of feuds with senior players and the club's hierarchy, although United's stirring 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle United on Saturday is likely to boost his chances of continuing at Old Trafford. I scored three in a row and I left, so I said, I think I have the touch and today exactly it proved. It's entirely possible that McDonnell's report was accurate, and that Manchester United had indeed planned to fire Mourinho.

A terrific free-kick from Juan Mata got the home-side back in the game, which was followed up by Paul Pogba and compatriot Anthony Martial linking up together to bring the Red Devils onto level footing.

Man Utd defeat Newcastle 3-2 in Premier League

Anthony Martial, at odds with the Portuguese this season, scored the equaliser and Sanchez, left out of the squad against West Ham last week, headed a 90th-minute victor. "All the players committed mistakes that were not normal".

"At half-time we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team".

Within three minutes, United's sleepy defence allowed Yoshinori Muto to turn easily in the penalty area and beat goalkeeper David de Gea with a low shot. "But for younger people I think "problem" - and I think in the first half they clearly showed that".

"We all know one swallow doesn't make a summer", he told the BBC. United's fixtures after the worldwide break are Chelsea, Juventus (home and away), Everton, Bournemouth and Manchester City.

Two Champions League clashes with Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus and meetings with high-flying Bournemouth and Everton follow before United travel to City for the Manchester derby on November 11.
