Juan Mata says Manchester United fans do not "deserve everything that is going on" and hopes the last-gasp comeback win against Newcastle gives the team a mental lift.

Manchester United's players and hierarchy should share the blame with manager Jose Mourinho for an "embarrassing" start to the season, according to Alan Shearer. Anthony Martial joined Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku in attack as he came in for Alexis Sanchez - it was only the second time this season that front three had started together.

"And if you want something more, in pre-season I also said that this season was going to be very hard".

However, other news outlets like BBC, Sky Sports and The Guardian reported yesterday before the match that Mourinho retains the backing of the club, with the board now having no plans to remove him as manager. We can't lose our heads and the big teams don't get beaten three or four times in a row. It was magnificent what they did, but it's the first time they've done it this season, now they need to do it consistently.

Fans took to Twitter to talk about Pogba's masterclass, and majority only had good things to say about the France global. He has scored 20 goals already for LA Galaxy, and is in excellent form. They made the difference.

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.

Newcastle, winless in seven previous league outings, could scarcely believe its luck at Old Trafford as wing back Kenedy, a former player of Mourinho's during his second spell at Chelsea, sprinted through the middle of the defense to open the scoring.

"A team that is always very well organised against, especially the teams of the first part of the table, where their manager is very bright on his analyse of the opponents qualities and to try to stop them".

Bailly was Mourinho's first signing as United manager. As I said, it was a pleasant dinner, we talked about everything and now we have to concentrate on football.

Magpies midfielder Matt Ritchie said: "Us as players are the only people who can get us out of this".
