Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho retains the support of the club’s board to turn the present situation around.
United host Newcastle at Old Trafford at 17:30 BST on Saturday, looking to avoid going five games without a win for only the second time since 1998.
However, it is understood there is no immediate threat to his position.
Last weekend’s 3-1 loss at West Ham made this the Red Devils’ worst start to a league campaign for 29 years.
Their poor performances have been compounded by off-field problems, with the relationship between Mourinho and midfielder Paul Pogba making headlines.
