Let's see what the next few days bring, as a meeting between Mourinho and Woodward will go a long way to deciding how his future will play out at Old Trafford.

All of that came amid growing speculation that Mourinho was about to be fired as United's manager after their worst-ever start to a Premier League season. They have to be counted and they have to be better.

"The manager can do so much but then it is down to the players on the pitch to produce and probably collectively", Rooney added in the Telegraph.

Under-fire manager Jose Mourinho accepts Manchester United's poor run is not good enough.

Sportsmail revealed on Monday that United risk losing their best players if Mourinho survives for the rest of the season and the mood around the club does not improve dramatically.

Victory over Newcastle - after going 2-0 down inside the first 10 minutes - moved United up to eighth in the table, seven points behind leaders Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho has praised the Manchester United fans for their "magnificent" support but believes they should focus on cheering on the team, not him.

Under-pressure Jose Mourinho should not be held exclusively responsible for Manchester United's struggles this season, according to Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney.

Manchester United turned to Mourinho in May 2016 after Louis van Gaal steered the Red Devils to a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the 2015-16 season. Even all the players, they make mistakes that are not normal.

The victor came in the 90th minute, when substitute Alexis Sanchez headed home and a much-relieved United ended a run of four matches without a win in all competitions. I have discussed it with him, it does not really attract him.

Carragher said: I think he is right - although there's more problems than just the board.

"Personally I think he set us up brilliantly, but we didn't produce on the pitch".

The Portuguese head coach arrived at Old Trafford with a rich pedigree in English football following a return of three Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup during two stints at Chelsea FC.
