Jose Mourinho's job not under immediate threat: Man United sources

He has also been keen to speak up last season's "phenomenal" campaign, even though United ended trophyless after losing the FA Cup final having finished 19 points behind Manchester City as Premier League runners-up.

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.

Scheduled to kick-off at 5:30pm, Mourinho and his staff were said to arrive before 12:00pm this afternoon.

United need a manager who will put his stamp on a side that so often looks lost and unsure of their identity under Jose Mourinho and Pochettino has shown enough in his spell at Tottenham to suggest that he could be the man to do just that.

Poor performances have been compounded by off-field problems during an uncomfortable start to the season at Old Trafford, with the relationship between Mourinho and star midfielder Paul Pogba creating unwanted headlines.

But senior figures at United told Press Association Sport that Mourinho would retain his job for the immediate future. "For me, it's not easy too, but I think life is made of experiences and some are new and some are déjà vu, but this is new".

The Red Devils are now in 10th place on the Premier League table - quite far from where they had imagined they would be at this point of the campaign - and are already nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

"It has to be coming from the top".

Shearer believes that United's most marked decline has been in defence.

"If Manchester United could hand pick any team to play this weekend it would be Newcastle", wrote Merson for Sky Sports.

Newcastle went in front for the first time in a league game this season only seven minutes in, as Kenedy ran onto Ayoze Perez's throughball, turned away from Ashley Young and curled past David de Gea.

Newcastle battled hard for their first win of the season, but their defensive frailties were exposed and their inability to make the most of some half-chances punished.

"Because", Neville added, "if this is true and it's broken the day before it's going to happen and he's going to be sacked after the game or at the weekend it's an absolute disgrace".

Bar Cardiff or Huddersfield, United could not find an opponent lower on confidence right now than Newcastle, who have scored just twice on the road in all competitions this season and have only two away wins in all competitions in 2018.
