Manchester United back José Mourinho and have no plans to remove manager

Rio Ferdinand ominously predicted his United career could now be over. Alexis Sanchez then came on for Marcus Rashford just after the hour.

But they rallied to score three goals inside the final 20 minutes, with Juan Mata and Anthony Martial netting before Alexis Sanchez headed in a 90th-minute victor.

Newcastle fans taunted Mourinho with chants of "you're getting sacked in the morning" after 20 minutes. When United capitulated timidly before the most mediocre of opposition and the fates conspired cruelly against him at a stunned Old Trafford. The US entrepreneurs are in constant contact with club executive, Ed Woodward and are happy with continuing with Mourinho for now. Predictable, widespread condemnation followed. 'Mourinho is a victor, Woodward is a loser, ' it read.

The centre-back watched Kenedy run past him for Newcastle's first goal and generally looked all at sea until Mourinho substituted him in the 19th minute in order to bring on Mata.

"At half-time we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team and that is fantastic", said Mourinho.

"Every ball around our box was nearly a goal or some mistake, a bad decision, panic".

In the hills above Palu , volunteers are working to dig a mass grave , big enough for thousands of bodies, according to the BBC . Many people were trapped and buried under collapsed houses. "So, on this issue, we can not pressure them to hold much longer".

Team news: What do Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez have to say? I don't want that, and if I could tell them to not do it I would, because it is not about me, it is about the football club they love and the football club we represent with honour and dignity.

In a five-minute span in the second half, United equalised.

"I think opponents with much more potential than us finished behind us". In football, results fix everything.

Further back, will Mourinho revert to his back-three system with Marouane Fellaini or Scott McTominay in the sweeper role? Even older players commit mistakes that are not normal. "They give me the contract because they wanted to give it me".

"The way they started the game was absolutely panicking. The feeling would be a positive feeling because nobody can promise to win matches". It is the first time I see man-hunting. I have to be ready for all of this. 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. It is my life. "I worked since I was a kid - I worked for this, and I will love it until my last day, so it's one more experience in my life".
