The fans instantly got behind the manager by chanting “José’s right, the board is shite” following the second goal.

His call was rewarded with just over 20 minutes remaining when a superb Mata free-kick hit the onion bag.

United are running out of time but need another two goals at least to claim all three points at Old Trafford.
