  • Rafael Benitez Manager of Newcastle United and Joselu of Newcastle United shake hands following the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Arsenal FC at St. James Park

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.

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.

The Daily Mirror reported late on Friday that Mourinho will be replaced as manager regardless of United's result in their Premier League fixture against Newcastle United on Saturday.

He said: "I'm not here to talk about him".

The former Chelsea manager added: "I think this is not about me, it is about the football club, the club they love and about the club we represent with all the honour and dignity but I'm amazed by that".

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.

Kenny gave an early lead to the Magpies in the seventh minutes of the game before Yoshniri Muto scored his first goal as a Newcastle United player to double his team's advantage in the 10th minute.

McConnell says Kavanaugh fight will help Republicans in November
Some 164 people were arrested, most for demonstrating on the Capitol steps, 14 for disrupting the Senate's roll call vote. Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate that she was certain Kavanaugh was her alleged attacker.

Earlier, Mourinho responded to the criticism coming his way by claiming United overachieved in finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, adding he always expected this campaign to be more hard.

"As a friend of mine was saying to me this morning, if tomorrow [it] rains in London, it's my fault", he said. Brexit, it's my fault. At 2-0 at half-time, with all the dynamic of the man-hunting, I think they behaved amazingly well for the team.

Geordie legend Keegan is adored in the North East after his spells with the club as both a player and manager. I have to be ready for this.

"We are better than this and, because we are better than this, our situation is going to improve".

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

"We created more chances to score more goals and that's a very positive sign".
