On the weekend, it looked like the Red Devils would stumble to another defeat after they went 2-0 down to Newcastle inside 10 minutes, but Mourinho's players rallied and ended up winning 3-2.
"I'm amazed", said Mourinho when asked about their backing.
As well as the rumours that he'd be sacked there has been plenty of criticism of the former Real Madrid boss and after the match he complained at the treatment he and the players had received saying, "It is the first time I see man-hunting".
Jose Mourinho consulted with his players at half-time, as his side were 2-0 down against Newcastle, in an attempt to find a way back for his side after a desperate performance. They deserve even if game ends 2-2.
In the seventh minute, Ayoze Perez played a routine through-ball inside full-back Young and Kenedy easily beat him, for skill and pace, before finishing ruthlessly.
Mourinho further joked that the rain in London would be his fault as would the negotiations for Brexit failing.
"I do not think that he will manage in England", he candidly stated.
"I have to be ready for all of this".
"I feel there's maybe a tug-of-war [between Mourinho and the board] and that needs to stop". It is a life I love, it is the life I worked for since I was a kid and I will love this until my last day.
Matt Ritchie (6.4) put in a typically energetic display, whilst Yedlin (6.3) was up against Man Utd's most unsafe player on the day in Martial. The goal kicked the home side up another gear, and some flashy Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial interplay allowed the latter to break his league duck and score his first Premier League goal since January. And another thing is you can't do better but you don't cope well with the feelings surrounding your environment. Victory saw United move up into eighth place in the table but still left them six points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who are away to Liverpool on Sunday.
