(Watch) Sanchez shows why Man Utd bought him with late winner against Newcastle

This is exactly the statement Mourinho’s men needed to make with the manager under intense pressure to keep his job.

The fans reacted to the goal by singing Mourinho’s name but this was also a very special moment for Sanchez, who has been getting a lot of criticism of late.

He has even lost his place in the team to Anthony Martial, who scored a late equaliser before the Chilean deliver the true goods.

United can now go into the international break on the back of a big win, with pressure lifted from Mourinho’s shoulders, although not entirely.

How does that taste Rafa?
