Jose Mourinho confirms that Paul Pogba was not injured when substituted in Manchester United's 1-0 defeat by Newcastle United on Sunday.

You know how it felt to be sitting/standing watching on as a fan, never mind being Rafa Benitez who we are all counting on to perform minor miracles this season.

"One bad result in this league can change everything", he said in a report by Sky Sports.

"Could he come in my direction and the way I see and think football, the way I like my players on the pitch and in training?"

"I think it's the only stadium in the Premier League [he has not won at], also Huddersfield, but I played there only once", Mourinho said.

'I think it's hard.

'Salah has surprised me, I didn't think he'd get anywhere near the goals he's got. I like the Geordies, I like to go there.

"I think it was a lovely way to win a football match the way they did".

'He's got a good collection of players that, on paper, there are some big names but that doesn't mean you're a good team.

However, Mourinho's substitution seemed far from the sympathetic move of urgency for an injury, and certainly appeared to be more on the grounds of getting rid of a liability during the game.

Their Champions League duels will live long in the memory, but nowadays one manager is hoping to avoid losing any more distance on the league leaders as the other looks to avoid the drop amid background tension.

At the beginning of the match, Newcastle were below the relegation line and needed all three points to stay clear, for now.

Mourinho has a dismal record at Newcastle, failing to win a single game in six trips.

However, Ritchie's 65th-minute victor came against the run of play and the Magpies had to defend for their lives as time ran down.

Man United's £89 million man clearly has the talent to be one of, if not the best midfielder in the world but it's often believed that boss Jose Mourinho has failed to bring out the best of the Frenchman.

"When you play a top side like Manchester United you know every ball is important because if you make a mistake they will punish you".

Mourinho was full of praise for Newcastle, however, insisting that they turned in a performance of vast quality.
