Mourinho looks done

So far, Newcastle has yet to win on road in the league, could this be the time that the Toon Army can buck the trend and nearly certainly relieve Mourinho of his duties as United boss. Undoubtedly, that is a trend that needs to stop.

The pressure is mounting on United and boss Jose Mourinho after a string of disappointing results to start the Premier League season.

United went 2-0 down at Old Trafford following goals from Newcastle's Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto in the seventh and tenth minute respectively.

The Portuguese took the bold call to substitute Bailly and brought on attacking midfielder Juan Mata.

Neville, who played his entire club career at Old Trafford, questioned the "values and principles" of the club if Mourinho were to be sacked.

"You have to start looking at the people who are appointing the manager, not the manager".

Falling two goals down after 10 minutes to Newcastle United?

Jose Mourinho accepts Manchester United's poor run is not good enough, but the under-fire manager stressed that it is not all his fault.

Rafa Benitez side have managed drawn two of seven games and lost five so far, leaving them in 18th position on the table. "Where are the values and the principles of Manchester United if this is true?"

Hello! Welcome to the Live Updates of Manchester United Vs Newcastle. Former player, Laurent Blanc is one of the dark horses in the race for Mourinho's job.

Mourinho has alienated players, fans and staff alike this season - he has been at loggerheads for weeks with World Cup victor Paul Pogba - and it seems the United board, led by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, now want to make a change.

Press Association Sport has been told that patience is wearing thin within the club's hierarchy but Friday evening's story appeared to catch United on the hop when contacted.

The former World Cup victor could also be key in unlocking the potential of fellow French man Paul Pogba, whom Mourinho reportedly fell out with amidst a string of poor performances. Man United may have just reached their nadir.
