United, having got off to their worst start to the league in 29 years, find themselves 10th in the table with 10 points from 7 matches. They have lost 3 PL matches already, and are winless across all competitions in 4 games.
On Friday, a concerned Jose opined that his side cannot afford to lose or draw against Newcastle, who visit Old Trafford. Pressure has been mounting on the manager, who is seeing a group of players looking jaded and playing without confidence.
Both on- and off-field issues have bothered the manager, and there have been talks circulating that he might be offloaded if results do not improve.
