Manchester United manager Mourinho was being tipped for the boot prior to the Red Devils' stirring 3-2 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

United's fixtures after the global break are Chelsea, Juventus (home and away), Everton, Bournemouth and Manchester City.

Following early strikes from Magpies duo Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto, United went in to the break two goals down and with large sections of the crowd against them.

It was nearly a replica of arguably the standout result of the Mourinho era, when United roared back from 2-0 down at half-time to Manchester City to win 3-2 at the Etihad in April to delay Pep Guardiola's title party.

He might yet lose it for his side have been wholly underwhelming so far this season, but he can at least count on the support of many Old Trafford regulars.

But just as the Old Trafford giants - and perhaps their manager - began to stare down the barrel, substitute Mata swept in a free-kick that Anthony Martial smartly connected with as the hosts made it 2-2 with 14 minutes to go.

According to 888Sport Mourinho remains the favourite to be the next Premier League boss to leave or be sacked.

"Pogba started at centre-half, him and Matic in the second half, and he had the most touches, most shots, the most passes, most sprints in the game, but the thing with him was that he needed to show up in this game", said Wright. "We all know how much of a special player he is and this could have been a massive confidence boost".

On 19 minutes, Mourinho replaced Eric Bailly with Juan Mata as he looked to inject some urgency into his team.

Having been linked with Manchester United, Zinedine Zidane's agent appears to have all but ruled out a move to the Premier League for the former Real Madrid coach.
