Jose Mourinho 'not facing threat of immediate sacking' by Manchester United

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.

What unfolds is Neville launching into a five-minute tirade against player-power at the club, executives playing "Football Manager" with the biggest team in the world and his belief that certain people that are running Manchester United are 'rotten to the core'. "We have to concentrate on Manchester United".

Ashley took Benitez and the squad to dinner in Newcastle - for pasta and pizza - on Wednesday in an attempt to establish a better working relationship.

Newcastle are winless in their seven Premier League games this season - only in 1898-99 (first 10) and 2015-16 (first 8) have they gone longer without a win from the start of a top-flight campaign.

But, with their weekend opponents enduring a nightmare run under Jose Mourinho, Elliott wants to see Benitez throw caution to the wind on Saturday.

"We know that our opponent needs points too, Rafa is brilliant at analysing the qualities of his opponents ad trying to beat them", Mourinho added of his rival.

There to be got at!

Newcastle manager Benitez attempted to pick up his demoralised players in the dressing room after the defeat, which left the club 19th in the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he received a text from the Manchester United board on Saturday morning amid rumours that he was about to be sacked. "If they play for the manager, they are not good professionals".

"At half-time we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team".

Regardless of whether Mourinho is sacked, Neville took issue with how the situation mirrors that of the Portuguese manager's predecessors Louis van Gaal and David Moyes, whose dismissals were made known to the media before they were officially announced. I think about how the club's been operated. It's been my life, it's given me everything and I'm not turning on my football club, but I have to say, something has to change, and it isn't the manager.

Mr Ashley refused to meet a potential buyer who went on to purchase Manchester City Football Club.
