Twitter reacts as Manchester United beat Newcastle United 3-2

But after being booed off at half-time, United avoided going five games without a win thanks to a thrilling second half fightback.

While takeover talks and discontent towards Mike Ashley rumble on behind the scenes, Rafael Benitez is keen to bolster his squad and The Chronicle states that the club are exploring the possibility of signing loanees Kenedy and Salomon Rondon on a permanent basis.

"(Here) I'm losing 2-0 at home in a very important match, the fans were awesome, I'm grateful for that".

The Mirror reported on Friday evening that the 55-year-old would lose his job regardless of the outcome of the game against Newcastle. Needing a win badly, it didn't look like it was coming after trailing Newcastle 2-0 in the opening minutes, but United bounced back and got a late victor from Alexis Sanchez to win 3-2.

Newcastle will hand late fitness tests to Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez ahead of Saturday's trip to Manchester United.

He has repeatedly and publicly berated United's players this season, suggesting in Tuesday's programme notes they had lost their "dignity" in a 3-1 league loss at West Ham last Saturday. The team will do much better than what it is doing.

Ashley is also said to have been keen to reassure influential stars in particular, such as club captain Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Matt Ritchie, that they should not let off-field speculation over his potential sale of the club affect the team's performances on the pitch.

"The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone [been sacked]", the Portuguese told talkSPORT.

"We know that our opponent needs points too, Rafa is brilliant at analysing the qualities of his opponents ad trying to beat them", Mourinho added of his rival.

"He's a good manager, but I want to try and concentrate on getting three points if we can".

"Any manager would struggle at that football club with the way in which it is operated".

"You have to start looking at the people who appoint the managers, the people who are bringing in the players, the people who are sanctioning the deals", he said.

"I'm reacting maybe a little bit emotionally, but I don't really care, to be honest with you".
