Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho.
Two managers on the edge?
Newcastle United travel to Manchester United on Saturday still searching for their first win of the Premier League season.

The Magpies were beaten 2-0 at home by Leicester City last weekend, with goals by Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire keeping Rafa Benitez’s side in the bottom three.

Newcastle have scored just four times so far this season and a long battle against relegation is beginning to look likely.
