Newcastle United vs Manchester United Full Match Reports

Newcastle United swiftly brushed aside their midweek UEFA Champions League frustrations with a hard-earned 1-0 triumph against Manchester United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League (PL), propelling them to fifth in the table and casting a shadow over Erik ten Hag’s tenure at Man United.

The Magpies, riding the momentum of five consecutive PL home victories, asserted their dominance in the first half, registering 14 shots and controlling the majority of possession. André Onana was forced into action to deny Miguel Almirón’s curling effort, while Kieran Trippier’s exceptional free-kick struck the underside of the crossbar, narrowly missing the net.

Alejandro Garnacho, in stellar form with two goals in his last two matches, including a remarkable bicycle kick at Everton, had the best opportunity for United. However, his shot was parried by Nick Pope on the angle. Newcastle’s ascendancy persisted at the start of the second half, and their efforts were rewarded ten minutes after the restart. Anthony Gordon, contributing to his 11th goal in the PL this season, tapped home Trippier’s cross, solidifying his position as the joint leader in assists in the division with seven.

Unwilling to rest on their laurels, the hosts continued to press, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka expertly blocking Alexander Isak’s goal-bound strike from close range. The late stages brought a tense moment as Harry Maguire headed in a potential equalizer, only for it to be disallowed for offside. Geordie nerves were further heightened by Pope’s injury-related substitution five minutes from time.

Those associated with the Magpies are hopeful that Pope’s injury is not severe, and for now, they bask in the glory of tonight’s victory. This triumph extends their impressive form, with seven wins in their last 10 PL games. Conversely, Erik ten Hag must grapple with the disappointment of a lackluster performance from his team, dropping to seventh in the table. The Red Devils face mounting concerns both on and off the pitch.

Man of the Match: Anthony Gordon (Newcastle United).
