Manchester United have ended their four games win less streak by coming from behind to beat Newcastle at Old Trafford this evening.
The Red Devils conceded 2 goals inside 10 minutes to the Magpies and they ended the first half trailing by this goal difference.
Antony Martial’s individual brilliance brought about the free kick that was duly converted by Juan Mata in the 70th minute and also, Paul Pogba’s wonderful back heel was superbly hit and sent beyond the Magpies Goalkeeper by the Frenchman.
The duo were menace to the away defence and it seemed they were the only ones playing for the team to win. with their manager’s job on the line, the duo seemed to be all out to save their managers job.
And it didn’t come as a surprise when Paul Pogba assisted the winning goal in the 90th minute. As a result of the duo’s all round play in the encounter today, Red Devils fans have taken to social media to react with some saying Martial and Pogba saved Mourinho’s job while others are castigating the remaining players.
What they said:
Pogba and Martial saved José ? None of players would deserve to wear man utd shirt if we lost to Newcastle and west ham , that was not abt Mourinho , we were on 4 winless run but some guys are obsessed with their favourite players playing well than man utd winning #mufc

United fans now know Mourinho is the problem. Appreciation tweet for Mata, Pogba, Sanchez and Martial. Lukaku remains a waste product.
