Alexis Sanchez scored a 90th-minute winner as his team came from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle, ending a four-game winless run.

Speculation over Mourinho’s future has increased, but prior to kick-off he retained the support of the club.

“It is the first time I see man-hunting. I can cope with it,” he said.

“I can live with it. Some of the boys, in spite of them not being the man that is hunted, they are not coping well with it,” Mourinho, 55, told BT Sport.

“Marcus Rashford was sad on the pitch, Scott McTominay was scared on the pitch. Even older players commit mistakes that are not normal.”
