Mata hoping comeback win can lift United, saying fans deserve better

Gary Neville launches blistering attack on Manchester United

Undoubtedly, that is a trend that needs to stop.

Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho gestures during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Newcastle at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on October 6, 2018.

United are without a win in four matches in all competitions and when put to Mourinho that such a run was not acceptable for a club of this size, he said: "Yes, I accept (it is not good enough)". 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.

Still a youngster it's not too much surprise to see him suffer from inconsistency issues but he will soon be expected to maintain good performances such as the one against Newcastle on a regular basis.

Mourinho said the team had a discussion at half-time, and although they did not promise to win the game, they did vow to play as well as they could. They made the difference. After shipping 2 goals in the first 10 minutes, United produced one of their greatest comebacks to defeat Rafa Benitez's side.

The Guardian have claimed that Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has promised the Toon squad bonuses and an end-of-the-season holiday if the squad can avoid relegation from the Premier League.

And no one helps, but we are warned before every single game to play the same players". The attitude was fantastic", Pochettino said. "It's important to be relaxed and calm".

Barely three minutes later, it was Jonjo Shelvey who collected a throw-in, his cross beating Eric Bailly's half-hearted attempt to clear and landing at the feet of Yoshinori Muto who evaded Young before turning to beat David De Gea.

Mourinho was also full of praise for Newcastle manager Benitez.

United staged a second-half comeback inspired by Paul Pogba, who set up the equaliser netted by Anthony Martial after substitute Juan Mata had halved the deficit with a free-kick. But it makes me not just a better manager but a better person, because I understand things in the human nature nowadays and in the industry in which I work.

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

Mourinho, in the technical area from the off, appeared reasonably relaxed as the game got under way and gave some claps of encouragement to his players.
