Under-pressure Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho saw his side score three goals, including a late victor, as they beat lowly Newcastle 3-2 at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.

"I am 55 years old, I am mature, I can cope with it and live with being hunted". Where are the values at Manchester United?

"Jose Mourinho is one of the best managers in the world".

The defeat leaves Newcastle second bottom in the Premier League, having taken just two points from their opening eight games, the club's worst start to a top-flight season.

But, with their weekend opponents enduring a nightmare run under Jose Mourinho, Elliott wants to see Benitez throw caution to the wind on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho lashed out at his critics after Manchester United's thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind victory against Newcastle on Saturday, calling the attacks against him "wickedness" and "man-hunting".

In a five-minute span in the second half, United equalised. Having heard boos ringing out around the stadium when the first half concluded, Mourinho then heard his name being sung loudly following Sanchez's goal and another sign was then visible in the crowd, reading 'JOSE IS A victor! Even without the victory I would leave the stadium with pride because of what the boys did or tried to do. I love that football club, I absolutely love it to death, it's been my life, it's given me everything, and I'm not turning on my football club, (but) I have to say something has to change and it isn't the manager, it's above that. "If they play for the manager, they are not good professionals".

"The half-time team talk was very strong, but it was needed and gave us a kick up the arse, you could say". I think any manager would struggle at Manchester United, with the way in which the recruitment is handled, the way in which it operates.

"When we conceded the first goal we started to have problems because they have so many good players that they could bring off the bench, and it is hard to contain them". He left along with Thiago Silva to join Paris Saint-Germain, with the money on offer just too good to turn down for players and club alike.
