It has been a big relieve for Manchester United since Saturday night after they were able to overcome the Newcastle scare by coming from behind to secure a late win at the Old Trafford.

In just 10 minutes into the game, the Red Devils were already shown the read side and were 2 goals down after the strikes by Kenedy and Yoshinori Moto.

However, late goals from Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata who were subbed in the course of the game and another by Anthony Martial were enough to ease pressure on manager Jose Mourinho.

Before the game, there was great pressure on the Portuguese manager to deliver a win owing to the poor previous performance his side have seen in the last four games.

The unsatisfactory results from the former Chelsea boss was created more crisis in the club in addition to the rift he has had with some of the players.

Mourinho was earlier accused of being the source of his own problem as a result of his relationship with the media and how he has handled his big players at the club.

Pundits say his bad relationship with the media made them place him in a bad light.

However, revelations from Marouane Fellaini hints that defeat against Newcastle would have been inevitable if the manager had not spoken the way he did.

According to him, “The manager asked us to be men and not to be afraid and just play. That we did” in the halftime break and that was all it took to turn things around.
