Injury-plagued Newcastle sink clueless Man Utd 1-0

Published




Newcastle United emerged victorious over Manchester United on Saturday night at St. James’ Park, securing a remarkable 1-0 victory that marks their first consecutive league wins against the Red Devils in 53 years. 

Anthony Gordon’s second-half goal proved to be the decisive moment in the match, as Newcastle’s energetic and determined performance outclassed a lackluster Manchester United side.

Eddie Howe’s Newcastle were the dominant force throughout the match, dictating the tempo and creating numerous scoring opportunities. 

Their attacking prowess was rewarded in the 55th minute when Gordon tapped in from close range following Kieran Trippier’s low cross. 

Trippier himself came close to extending Newcastle’s lead just before halftime, with his free-kick smashing off the underside of the bar.

In contrast, Manchester United struggled to impose themselves on the game and failed to create any clear-cut chances. 

Their performance was a far cry from their recent resurgence, leaving manager Erik ten Hag with plenty to ponder.

Newcastle’s victory marks a significant milestone for the club, not only for their dominance over Manchester United but also for their impressive position in the Premier League table. 

They currently sit in fifth place, demonstrating their newfound strength and resilience under Howe’s leadership.
