Mourinho expressed confidence that the Premier League table would look different before long - United are now in 10th position - and suggested they would be in for a hard game against Rafael Benitez's Newcastle. When asked if it was not good enough Mourinho then opened up and said: "Yes, I accept".

Former United and England midfielder Scholes has been one of Mourinho's most outspoken critics and labelled the Portuguese boss "embarrassing" before Tuesday's goalless Champions League draw with Valencia.

The 25-year-old refused to rule out a move away from United during the global break in September amid ongoing rumours that he has set his sights on a transfer to Barcelona and Mourinho then stripped the France worldwide of the vice-captaincy after he seemingly criticised his tactics following the 1-1 draw with Wolves.

The Red Devils are still looking for a win in four games including their Carabao Cup loss to Derby County and he is on the brink of being shown the door. Why are things not working as you would like them to work here at Manchester United?

United are without a win in four matches in all competitions and go into the weekend 10th in the Premier League table after last weekend's 3-1 defeat to West Ham.

"They have a very, very, very good coach 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 analysis of the opponent's qualities and to try to stop them", said Mourinho in his press conference, as quoted by The Chronicle.

Asked about how important it is for United to beat Newcastle in their next Premier League clash on Saturday, Mourinho told the press: "It's very important".

Q: You've not won at home since the opening day, is it important to repay the fans and an important time to do it before the worldwide break?

'I experienced it at Valencia in those last couple of months and I think Jose Mourinho has had seven matches in the last 20 days, something like that.

If United fail to defeat Newcastle this would also mean five games at home without victory, which has not occurred since November-February of the 1989-90 campaign.

"When you look at the tables all around Europe, the tables in September and October don't reflect what is going to happen at the end of the season".
