Manchester United fought back from 2-0 down with three second-half goals. Undoubtedly, that is a trend that needs to stop.
Jose Mourinho is under intense pressure at Old Trafford and reports prior to United's comeback victory over Newcastle suggested the Portuguese would be sacked regardless of the result.
Paul Pogba in particular was excellent in the second half as he produced a lovely assist for the Anthony Martial equaliser before the much maligned Alexis Sanchez popped up with the victor in the last few minutes.
"And if you want something more, in pre-season I also said that this season was going to be very hard".
"I think we have enough potential to do better than what we are doing in the Premier League", he said.
The Red Devils still find themselves six points behind leaders Manchester City and Liverpool though, who both have a game in hand, and have a tough run of fixtures to come. He wasted no time in moulding a title-winning team, but he spent the following season falling out with seemingly everyone around him and was eventually fired.
Before yesterday's clash with the Magpies, Mourinho had gone four home matches without a win for the first time in his managerial career following Tuesday's draw with Valencia in the Champions League.
"We have been solid in a lot of games, but we pushed forward well and created chances well, but the ones we didn't take made the difference".
Details also emerged of Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes' meeting with senior United figures on Friday evening in London.
"When you think who they are, what they are, what brand they are, they have been on the front pages, the back pages and it has not been good".
"Mourinho has to realise that we expect Manchester United to be challenging to win the league and do well in the Champions League, so when they're down in 10th, 11th place, he has to expect some stick".
United staged a second-half comeback inspired by Paul Pogba, who set up the equaliser netted by Anthony Martial after substitute Juan Mata had halved the deficit with a free-kick. "I have to say something has to change and it isn't the manager, it's above that". We have a very important game to play.
"We did really well in the first half and could have scored one or two more and there are some positives we need to take from that". His ability get great work from fringe players like Moses and Pedro at Chelsea was clear for everyone to see.
