- Jose Mourinho has made it clear that Manchester United must beat Newcastle
- He stated this on Friday morning, October 5, in a press conference ahead of the match
- Manchester United have not recorded a win in their last four games this season
Embattled Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that his wards must beat Newcastle in their next Premier League tie so as to reduce the pressure on ground.
Mourinho is currently under serious pressure this season at Old Trafford after the club's failure to win in their last four encounters.
The Special One has faced the most criticism of his career with many ex-pros believing anything other than a win against Newcastle will be the end of his reign.
And while speaking in a press conference on Saturday, Jose Mourinho made it clear that he is determined to record a victory against his opponents on Saturday.
“Only one defeat at home all season, only one defeat in the last seven matches but not victories at home in the past three matches, three draws.
“Not the feeling of the defeat but not the happiness of the victory so is important for us to try and win this match on Saturday.
“I know we are in the beginning of October and we look to tables all around Europe and in many of the leagues the tables in September and October don't reflect what is going to happen in a few months or even at the end of the season.
“But we are in a position where we can do much better and to do that we need points, points that we lost especially in the last two Premier League matches, with one point out of six.
“We know that to improve that position we need to win these three points, but we know that our opposition also need the points,'' Jose Mourinho said in a press conference according to Daily Star UK.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Manchester United legend Paul Scholes called for the sack of Jose Mourinho claiming the Portuguese has embarrassed the Premier League club this season.
United continued their poor form with a barren draw with Spanish club Valencia in a Champions League tie played at Old Trafford.
