  • Manchester United's Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez celebrates with Manchester United's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini after scoring the team's third goal during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and

According to 888Sport Mourinho remains the favourite to be the next Premier League boss to leave or be sacked.

Sanchez has struggled for form since joining from Arsenal in January but came off the bench to head home in the 90th minute and end his side's four-game winless run.

But just as the Old Trafford giants - and perhaps their manager - began to stare down the barrel, substitute Mata swept in a free-kick that Anthony Martial smartly connected with as the hosts made it 2-2 with 14 minutes to go.

Zidane appeared to be the ideal candidate to take over from Mourinho who is under huge pressure following a United's worst start to the season in 29 years.

The Special One saw his side stage a sensational comeback on Saturday, winning 3-2 against Newcastle United thanks to a last-gasp goal from the allegedly unsettled Alexis Sanchez.

Newcastle, who began the day second-bottom in the table on goal difference, had not held a lead in any league game this season before Kenedy opened the scoring in the seventh minute.

An embarrassed Eric Bailly took on the role of United fall guy when Mourinho hauled off the Ivory Coast center half after only 19 minutes and replaced him with Spain midfielder Juan Mata.

"He's on holiday mode", was how Lancombe described him recently, whilst his team also pointed out that Zidane is capitalising on his time away from the game. Even all the players commit mistakes that are not.

"I do not think that he will manage in England", Migliaccio told Le Journal du Dimanche (via Goal). I have a contract to 2020, I didn't point a pistol at them.

The second half saw the French midfielder play one of his best matches of the season, before Alexis Sanchez claimed a dramatic late victor.

"I beat Liverpool at Anfield 4-0 and I was amazed to hear the stadium singing Liverpool songs".

The support is not unconditional.

Mourinho has asked for a "vote of confidence", but the board are unlikely to grant the request. One wonders what his reaction would have been had United lost.

"At halftime we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team and that is fantastic", he said, adding that he would have preferred not to hear his own name.
