Sánchez seals dramatic Manchester United comeback against Newcastle

There were chants of “José Mourinho” from the Stretford End as Manchester United left it late to win their first home match in five attempts. There was no such backing as the home side went two goals down inside 10 minutes for the first time ever in a Premier League game at Old Trafford, but just when he needed it most Mourinho and his team came through with the sort of stirring fightback supporters had begun to despair of ever seeing again. The stadium was a happy place at the end, it had seen the first decent game in quite some time, and neither of those eventualities seemed on the cards when the match kicked off.

In terms of Mourinho’s future the much-discussed manager looked a goner as Newcastle started the game like a runaway train, yet one thrilling recovery later – capped by a winning goal from the much-maligned Alexis Sánchez – it was clear his players are anything but demotivated and far from certain that the Manchester United hierarchy need to make any hurried decisions over the weekend.
