Manchester United's players and hierarchy should share the blame with manager Jose Mourinho for an "embarrassing" start to the season, according to Alan Shearer.

Manchester United battled back from two goals down to beat Newcastle United 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday as a 90th-minute victor from Alexis Sanchez completed a spirited comeback to ease the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho.

The Daily Mirror reported on Friday night that Mourinho would be sacked regardless of the result of Saturday's Premier League game against Newcastle. I love that football club.

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

Further back, will Mourinho revert to his back-three system with Marouane Fellaini or Scott McTominay in the sweeper role?

"The way we started game they were panicking".

Sarri: Fabregas is a great option for Chelsea
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports , Fabregas said: "I wish he came a bit earlier to be honest, it's a little bit late now in my career".


Mourinho said the team had a discussion at half-time, and although they did not promise to win the game, they did vow to play as well as they could. I think of Louis van Gaal being sacked the evening of an F.A cup final and finding out from other people.

"Where are the values and principles of Manchester United?".

"I think we have enough potential to do better than what we are doing in the Premier League", he said.

Zidane would likely be a popular choice given his incredible European success at Madrid, and the eye-catching brand of football he had the Spanish giants playing, a stark contrast to the pragmatic style United fans have become accustomed to under Mourinho. I love that football club. "I have to say something has to change and it isn't the manager, it's above that". "So I think it's a ridiculous talk".

"Newcastle will go there for a 0-0 but United will eventually break them down". "I hope it's not true but if it is true it's an absolute disgrace".

"At this moment in time there is something rotten to the core in the decisions that have been made in the last four or five years and it has to be coming from the top", Neville said. I told you last season was a fantastic season for us and if you want something more, in pre-season I also said that this season was going to be very hard. It had me expecting that the Red Devils would win 5-0 and Mourinho would be living it large in his smug way post match.
