Newcastle 1-0 Man Utd: There’s only one United!

A night that sums up the might of Eddie Howe’s Mags, as the same 11 who battered Chelsea 4-1 and battled to a 1-1 draw in Paris dominated Man Utd in a brilliant win at St James’ Park.

A huge three points in so many ways, as we put injuries aside and delivered another enormous display to beat our top-four rivals.

Thankfully, we came out after the break with the same energy and intent, immediately putting them on the back foot. Joelinton – who was back to his very best – fired a low effort too close to Onana but the ‘dodgy keeper’ was soon beaten, as Trippier’s low cross was tapped home by Gordon;…
