Manchester United came back from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday, with a crank discussion at half time crucial to the turnaround.
Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto put the Magpies ahead before three second half goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez won the game for the home side.

Reports suggesting Jose Mourinho was due to be sacked after the game no matter the result were denied, but facing serious questions, he needed to change things around at the break.
“Marcus Rashford was sad on the pitch, Scott McTominay was scared on the pitch,” Mourinho said to BT Sport after the game.
“Even older players commit mistakes that are not normal.
“At half-time we had a good conversation. We didn’t promise that we would win the match. We promised we would give absolutely everything without any fear, without any pressure, just the pressure of giving everything and of course they gave everything.”
United will hope the victory can be a turning point for their season, with games against Chelsea, Juventus and Manchester City to come after the international break.
