"I don't think we see it as a free hit anymore, these kinds of games, because we believe we can beat them".
Bournemouth have only beaten United once since they were promoted from the Championship in 2015.
Mourinho had been under intense pressure heading into the Newcastle game at Old Trafford amid speculation he would be sacked, regardless of the result, with United not having won any of their four previous matches.
