Mourinho gets FA charge for 'abusive language' in Newcastle win

Paul Scholes has publicly criticised United on more than one occasion over the past few years, and particularly while they have been managed by Jose Mourinho. United needed a last-minute victor against Newcastle United and face Chelsea once the worldwide break is over.

And Scholes name-checked Manchester City duo David Silva and De Bruyne, along with Chelsea's Hazard - the league's leading scorer - as the benchmark, but acknowledged there are no guarantees.

If Mourinho gets banned, it will be a double blow for Manchester United ahead of their clash against Chelsea, who are unbeaten in the English Premier League so far. I do think they miss a couple of real class players that other top teams seem to have - a link player between the midfield and the forwards and also a controlling midfield player.

The United boss is thought to have been unhappy with the club's transfer business in the summer, as he feels that they have failed to add a suitable centre-back to strengthen the team sufficiently.

United recovered from 2-0 down to complete a dramatic comeback with a last-gasp goal from Alexis Sanchez.

"I know he has qualities and has been a good player but I never saw him as a United player".

"That shouldn't make any difference but it does", Scholes told ESPN.

Against Newcastle, the Red Devils were close to succumbing to an embarrassing defeat, but second-half heroics from players helped Mourinho get away from suffering the axe. It feels like we have turned into a Liverpool or a Man City. The Italian is under contract at Turin till 2020 and wants to turn Juventus into Champions League contenders after finishing runners-up twice in the past four years, as per the report.
