Jose Mourinho cost Manchester United a shot at the Premier League title

ESPN - 02-21


The most depressing day of the Premier League season so far? If you're a Manchester United fan, it has to be October 6, 2018. That's when Newcastle -- a team under Rafa Benitez who organizes his players as if they were preparing to defend against Thanos -- went up 2-0 in the first 10 mintues at Old Trafford. If that was surprising, what followed was the real shock: Jose Mourinho's men staged a 3-2 comeback with second half goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and, in the 90th minute, a guy named Alexis Sanchez who, legend has it, used to find the back of the net regularly.
