United fought back from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle United 3-2 on Saturday, with Alexis Sanchez scoring a 90th-minute victor in front of the Stretford End at Old Trafford.

Despite limited time to prepare for the visit of Newcastle following their continental exploits, Mourinho is adamant that his side will be well-prepared for the clash.

The return of Anthony Martial certainly stands out, while Alexis Sanchez will be on the bench once again. I am mature. I am a big boy, but clearly, some of the boys - Marcus Rashford was sad on the pitch; Scott McTominay was scared on the pitch.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Mourinho has been pushing for a show of support from Woodward and the Glazer family, United's owners, in recent weeks, with further efforts made this week to prompt them into a public statement of their backing.

It was Sanchez's first United goal of the season, while Lukaku has netted four strikes in the Premier League this campaign.

The victory gave Mourinho the highest win percentage of any Manchester United manager, with 60.3 per cent above Sir Alex Ferguson's record of 60.1 per cent.

Stabile's obituary said that he passed away surrounded by his family on Friday, September 21 at the Atlantic City Medical Center. He also said he and his workers' "hearts and prayers" are with family and friends of Stabile and the New Jersey surf community.

Neville was enraged about the suggestion Mourinho will be forced to lead out his team at Old Trafford knowing his days in the job are numbered, accusing the United hierarchy of "playing Football Manager with the biggest club in the world".

"[We have had] recovering time for the players that played against Valencia and good work for the others that obviously were in ideal condition to train", Mourinho added.

Bailly had not earned a start in the league since the 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion in August, and he could be facing a long wait for his next one given his display here. The goal seemed to inject the team with the confidence they had been lacking.

"No, I think we have enough potential to do better than what we are doing in the Premier League", he said at his press conference, which was scheduled at the earlier than usual time of 8am.

Asked why it was so hard to get the players working together with team spirit, the United boss said: "Because sometimes things are not just in the manager's hands". Louis van Gaal was sacked the evening before a cup final [in 2016], finding out through other people. "So I think it's a ridiculous talk". It is about the football club they love and the football club we represent with honour and dignity.
