Manchester United 3-2 Newcastle United: Mourinho’s Red Devils end winless run in epic comeback [Tweets]

Manchester United completed a scintillating turnaround from being two goals down to defeat Newcastle United 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Manchester United came into the game under intense pressure, with reports of Jose Mourinho’s impending sack dominating the headlines. And things were off to the worst possible start for the Red Devils, with Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto finding the back of the net within ten minutes from kick off.

However, Manchester United mounted an spirited comeback after the break, with substitute Juan Mata pulling one back with a sensational free-kick in the 70th minute, before Anthony Martial found the back of the net six minutes later to reinstate parity.

United pressed on in search of a winner from thereon and it finally came in the stoppage time, when Alexis Sanchez headed home an Ashley Young cross to send Old Trafford into a meltdown. With the win, the Red Devils brought an end to a four-match run without a victory. Here are some of the best reactions on social media to United’s sensational comeback;
