Man United will give Mourinho time, says Essien

'I hope (Mourinho stays) because Manchester United had Sir Alex Ferguson for so long and I don't want us to become a yo-yo club with managers sacked every two years.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has said that the club might not look to pursue attackers in January as they already have good numbers in that department.

The many concerns of those fans who fill Old Trafford every week will not evaporate during the week-long global break, but at least they went home smiling after a super comeback.

With that in mind, this is the starting XI Jose Mourinho has chosen for Saturday's match against Newcastle United at Old Trafford.

We have a very important game to play.

Now 10th in the Premier League, Mourinho is aware that his job is hanging by a thread.

And Sanchez proved the hero, scoring his first Premier League goal since March 31 by heading home in the 90th minute before United waited out five minutes of added time.

"But still if we can do something, it will be better". It is the life I love and since I was a kid I work for this'. I think, to be honest with you, I'm furious.

But despite Woodward praising Mourinho's credentials during a recent conference call to the club's investors, the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager has grown increasingly frustrated by what he perceives to be a lack of credible, public backing from his bosses.

However, smart substitutions, a gripping half-time team-talk, and rarely seen before attacking display allowed his side to pull off a sensational comeback and come out 3-2 winners.

"(Here) I'm losing 2-0 at home in a very important match, the fans were wonderful, I'm grateful for that". Some of the boys, in spite of them not being the man that is hunted, they are not coping with it.

Martial's definitely not helped by Mourinho's insistence on throwing on his back-up players in random moments or at times they aren't match-fit but he also has to take some responsibility for his form. The Magpies' defence got unsettled after conceding the goal and finally Anthony Martial leveled the score in the 76th minute.
