The Red Devils came from 2-0 down after an excellent second-half performance.

Kenedy opened the scoring after seven minutes, before Yoshinori Muto doubled their lead with an easy finish just three minutes later.

However, Juan Mata pulled one back with 20 minutes left on the clock with a superb free-kick, before Anthony Martial levelled for United five minutes later.

Then in the 90th minute, Alexis Sanchez nicked all three points for the home side with a close range finish.

But despite claiming the win, it is unclear as to whether Mourinho could still be on his way out of the club.

While the Portuguese was animated in his celebrations over his side’s last-gasp victory, executive-vice chairman Woodward barely moved a muscle while watching on from the stands.

Earlier in the game, Woodward was seen crossing his arms for most of the first-half.

And according to body language experts, this could spell the end for Mourinho.

“By crossing the arms, a barrier is put in front of the body, as some sort of protection,” experts say.

“Putting an object in front of you may be the same signal.

“Another reason for crossing arms may be that you’re feeling vulnerable or insecure.”
