Manchester United got a very good result against Newcastle before the international break as Jose Mourinho’s men had to dig deep in that game.
Newcastle were leading 2-0 heading into the final stages of the game, but United scored three goals in the last 20 minutes of the game in what was a spectacular comeback.
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has hailed that victory against the Magpies ahead of Saturday’s clash against Chelsea. Giggs believes United can get a good result at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and hails Jose Mourinho as a manager that can dig out results in big games.
“Anthony Martial didn’t play well in the first half but in the second he came out flying and that’s nothing to do with the manager, that’s the player doing it for themselves, so sometimes you can’t put everything on the manager,” Giggs said in his Sky Sports column.
“They got three goals in the last game so obviously the attacking threats are there, obviously you’d like to get that attacking intent for 90 minutes but if you play like that against Chelsea and go 1-0 down it’s a long way back – you can possibly get away with it against so-called lesser teams.
“So this period really is crucial for Manchester United – if you beat teams around you then it gives you not only three points but huge confidence as well so if they come through this period with a couple of wins against the big teams then they’re back in it. ‘I’m not saying they can challenge for the title but they’re well capable of at least being up there and in these big games if one manager knows how to dig out results it’s Mourinho.”
