Heavy scrutiny at Manchester United comes with the territory and both players and managers must learn to deal with it if they want to succeed, according to Ander Herrera.

Manager Jose Mourinho has not taken kindly to the criticism directed towards him following what after seven games was United's worst start to a league campaign since 1989.

Prior to the comeback win over Newcastle reports suggested Mourinho would be sacked by the United hierarchy, regardless of the result.

Mourinho claimed after the success, which has triggered a run of four wins and draw in the last six games, that even "if people don’t like Brexit it is my fault".

But whether it is Mourinho at the helm, or whoever follows him at Old Trafford, Herrera says questions over your position after a defeat is something to be expected at such a big club.

"When you play for Manchester United, the biggest club in the UK and one of the biggest in the world, you have to get used to that [attention]," Herrera said.

"I have been here five years and with [Louis] van Gaal every day the papers talking. When Mourinho came, the same and we won titles. One day if another manager comes, they will speak so it's something we are used to coping with.

"I think Manchester United players need to have the personality to cope with that. It's true when our Premier League opponents lose games, the papers don't talk that much but when we lose they do."

The analysis of Mourinho's position will never have been greater than when United travel to Manchester City on Sunday.

United arrive at the Etihad Stadium having beaten Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday and with a victory under their belt from last year's fixture, but Herrera says recent history counts for nothing.

"I don't like to compare situations. It's a new game, a new situation," the Spaniard added.

"Hopefully, we can win. It's true that they are the favourites because they are in unbelievable form but this is Manchester United and you never know what can happen."
