Speculation over Mourinho's future has increased, but prior to kick-off he retained the support of the club.
Mirror also give another explanation for United's hesitancy to get rid of Mourinho, as they feel there is now no viable replacement out there. I am 55 years old now and I can live with it but some of my boys are not coping quite so well. Marcus Rashford was scared on the pitch. "Even older players commit mistakes that are not normal".
United's attack did the defence no favours in the 50th minute, with Pogba denied by Newcastle Martin Dubravka from 25 yards despite a deflection and Matic missing the second chance, on an open net, by sending his attempt over the crossbar.

A run of four games in all competitions without a victory put pressure on Mourinho, who came under increased scrutiny before the game, with the Daily Mirror reporting that he would be sacked regardless of the result on Saturday.

That story sparked a furious reactions from United legend Gary Neville, who told Sky Sports that the hierarchy at the club needed to be changed as he claimed persistent leaks from Old Trafford insiders were undermining a succession of the club's managers.
However, Mourinho's full-time words have also been highlighted, with the former Chelsea man apparently being spotted mouthing the popular Portuguese insult: "Vai tomar no cú filhos da puta" at video cameras following the win.
The United players somehow rallied, be it for themselves, their manager or the fans, to prevent an embarrassing catastrophe against Newcastle, and while that has left fans confused as to Mourinho's position, it would be best for united's chiefs to wait it out till the end of the season before making a move.
"I'm amazed by that response [singing his name]".
