Despite Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Newcastle United on Saturday, former Premier League midfielder Jermaine Jenas isn’t convinced Manchester United are out of the woods just yet.

Before the victory over Newcastle, Manchester United had failed to win any of our last four games in all competitions.

After a terrible start in which we conceded twice in the first ten minutes, Manchester United turned the game on its head to beat Newcastle 3-2.

The Red Devils scored thrice in the last twenty minutes with goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez.

Asked about his thoughts on United’s performance against Newcastle, Jenas told BT Sport: “They came up against a Newcastle side who have hardly scored any goals this year and they could have scored five.

“Defensively they [Manchester United] play like that against any of the sides in their next six games and they will be bang in trouble again.

“It’s a great result, but you don’t want to fear it’s just papering over the cracks.

“That’s the worry looking forward.

“They showed great character and spirit in the team and Jose [Mourinho] made the changes at the right time, but going forward, I don’t think Manchester United will be fine.

“And that’s the big worry.”
