Newcastle 1 - 0 Man Utd


21:40 (IST)11 FEB 2018




That's all from us, Anirudh Menon and Shambhu Ajith, thank you for reading!


21:39 (IST)11 FEB 2018

95' OH MY GOOD LORD! WHAT A SAVE! WHAT. A. SAVE! United scream forward, McTominay is blocked off, Mata plays it into the box, Carrick steers it toward goal - it really ought to be one but Dubravka pulls off an astonishing save. 

21:38 (IST)11 FEB 2018

94' Newcastle are killing time here as Isaac Hayden is thrown on for Ayoze Perez. More height, kills time, you can't fault Rafa's logic here. 

21:36 (IST)11 FEB 2018


21:36 (IST)11 FEB 2018

92' Another corner from Alexis, it's hacked clear - but then the Chilean ends up winning another. 

21:35 (IST)11 FEB 2018

91' Mata's corner is absolutely rubbish, but Atsu can't get on his scooter and mount a counter a Valencia and Carrick squeeze the life out of him

21:34 (IST)11 FEB 2018

90' I really have nothing to report here as United knock it around without really penetrating. As I say that United win a corner 

21:32 (IST)11 FEB 2018

88' Newcastle are keeping it at the corner. This is brilliant game-management from the Magpies. 

21:31 (IST)11 FEB 2018

87' Valencia absolutely clatters Atsu with a high-boot as the Chelsea loanee and United captain vie for the ball. That really, really, ought to have been a red. 

21:29 (IST)11 FEB 2018

85' Martial races down the left, plays it into the area where Sanchez collects it and sees his dink into the box blocked by Mata. Story of United's 2nd half this, really

21:27 (IST)11 FEB 2018

83' Lukaku displays some superb footwork to work the ball further into the final third - before slipping in Sanchez, but Dummett times his tackle to perfection. Newcastle throw on Atsu for a dead-on-his-feet Kenedy

21:26 (IST)11 FEB 2018

82' Newcastle move forward through the ever-enterprising Matt Ritchie - but his cross to the far post has got too much oomph on it for Kenedy. 

21:25 (IST)11 FEB 2018

81' The corner is punched away by the impressive Dubravka - and Shelvey flies into Lukaku with an absolutely brilliant challenge. 

21:24 (IST)11 FEB 2018

80' UFF! Mata curls an absolutely superb freekick (which he won) but Lejeune takes it off McTominay's forehead with an incredible header

21:23 (IST)11 FEB 2018

78' Scott McTominay is on for Nemanja Matic and Joselu is on for Dwight Gayle

21:22 (IST)11 FEB 2018


21:22 (IST)11 FEB 2018

76' Martial is played one v one vs Lejeune but the Frenchman keeps his compatriot at bay - Martial then plays in Lukaku - whose cross is then headed away for a corner

21:20 (IST)11 FEB 2018

75 Sanchez hunts down a Mata ball and swings in an early cross but its a bit too high for Lukaku. 

21:18 (IST)11 FEB 2018

74' Valencia pumps it forward, Lukaku comes back from an offside position and United couldn't be any more turgid if they tried. 

21:16 (IST)11 FEB 2018

73' Carrick whacks Perez with his boot as they both go for high ball. Newcastle will eke out as much time as they can from that. 

21:15 (IST)11 FEB 2018

72' Martial tries to play in Matic inside the box, but Lascelles is there to make sure nothing happens from it. 

21:14 (IST)11 FEB 2018

70' Newcastle have fallen back into a formidable shape - they have the goal they so desperately needed and are looking to protect it with all they have

21:11 (IST)11 FEB 2018

67' Ashley Young skins, absolutely skins, Yedlin before smashing a shot that Dubravka does well to push away from danger! The corner comes to naught

21:11 (IST)11 FEB 2018

66' Substitutions for United as Pogba and Lingard are off for Carrick and Mata. 

21:09 (IST)11 FEB 2018

OH MY! OH MY! Shelvey pings it onto Lejeune who knocks it down Gayle - and the striker flicks it out to Ritchie who absolutely blasts it into the bottom far corner. Great goal that.

21:08 (IST)11 FEB 2018


21:08 (IST)11 FEB 2018

63' Smalling channels his inner Tom Daley and swan-dives unnecessarily over Shelvey's legs... that's a freekick for Newcastle

21:07 (IST)11 FEB 2018

62' Yedlin rips forward but Young keeps him at bay - Sanchez nips in from nowhere steals the ball and zips off! 

21:06 (IST)11 FEB 2018

61' Lejeune and Martial get together and that's a United freekick. The visitors take it short but nothing comes out of it but Newcastle winning the ball back quite easily 

21:04 (IST)11 FEB 2018

60' Pogba urges United forward with a neat ping to Lukaku, who once again holds it up beautifully - but Yedlin slides in well to put a stop to Lingard's surge forward 

21:01 (IST)11 FEB 2018

57' OHHHHH MY GOOD LORD! OH MY! OH MY! A bit of enterprising intercepting from Valencia led to Lukaku getting the ball - who then played in Sanchez with an absolute peach of a ball - Sanchez takes it around Dubravka, inexplicably waited and took a touch - before Lejuene slid with a superb block. Why Sanchez waited only he will know. 

20:58 (IST)11 FEB 2018

54' O SANCHEZ! He mishits one from the left side, inside the box. A couple of moments later, Sanchez slaloms past 2 defenders inside the box and tries to sidefoot one home but it is deflected off for a corner.

20:57 (IST)11 FEB 2018

53' Lukaku heads the ball into the net from a Smalling header inside the area. But quite clearly, Lukaku pushes the defender from behind and the goal won't count.

20:55 (IST)11 FEB 2018

51' Young brought down by Ritchie as he is hounded by a tag-team of Ritchie and Perez. United win a freekick and de Gea propels it upfield. But the speculative pass to pick out Martial is too heavy and ends up going out for a throw-in to the Toons.

20:54 (IST)11 FEB 2018

50' Lingard runs straight into traffic after United break on the counter. That's rather poor from Lingard and he concedes a freekick when it was there to be won.

20:53 (IST)11 FEB 2018

49' United are looking better in the attacking third so far and their fans will hope that it will continue. Meanwhile, Newcastle break again and Young concedes a throw-in near the corner flag on United's left-hand side.

20:52 (IST)11 FEB 2018

48' Ritchie is fed a delightful through ball by Shelvy but he is marginally offside. Fine margins there. 

20:51 (IST)11 FEB 2018

47' United more fluid around the final third in this half. Young feigns and goes past a couple of defenders but Lascelles holds his ground and clears his lines.

20:50 (IST)11 FEB 2018

46'  Lingard finds Young in space on the left wing. He whips one into the centre, a low cross, which Martial tries to gather but it's just too much for him to do though it looked very promising for a split-second.

20:49 (IST)11 FEB 2018

45' United run it back to de Gea who boots it upfield. United have a throw-in on the right wing.

20:48 (IST)11 FEB 2018

PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! Lingard sets the ball rolling and we're off in the second half. Who will go home with a smile tonight? We'll find out in 45 minutes.

20:47 (IST)11 FEB 2018

Nil-Nil at the break here at St. James Park. Manchester United will be hoping for a much better half this time around. Newcastle United must feel like they can really pull off an upset here. The players are emerging out of their changing rooms and onto the ground.

20:34 (IST)11 FEB 2018


The score tells you the story of the half really, with both teams showing glimpses of their potential - the visitors more than the hosts; but it's still all level between no. 18 and no. 2 in England

20:33 (IST)11 FEB 2018

47' The corner is rubbish. Dubravka claims rather easily

20:33 (IST)11 FEB 2018

46' Sanchez gives the ball away with a ball straight to Shelvey - Pogba then releases Sanchez with another delightful ball, the Chilean heads it to Lukaku - a smart one - but Lukaku dawdles on the shot and it bounces off Lascelles and bounces away for a corner. 

20:31 (IST)11 FEB 2018

45' United keep the ball to themselves as they look to calm things down. One minute to added on

20:30 (IST)11 FEB 2018

43' Young's delivery from the freekick is ridiculous - and Newcastle spring for'ard on the counter with a superb Ritchie ball that releases Kenedy. Young holds him up, and Kenedy's cross doesn't come to much. United, in turn, try to launch their own corner but Lingard's five-yard ball to Lukaku is abysmal

20:28 (IST)11 FEB 2018

42' Yedlin brings Lingard down as the Englishman chases down what had looked to be a lost cause... no caution, and Lingard is furious. 

20:26 (IST)11 FEB 2018

40' Smalling lunges in on Gayle wins nothing of the ball and gets away with it. Shelvey lunges in on Pogba, gets nothing of the ball and the ref blows for a foul. Rafa Benitez is close to self-combustion

Oh, Gayle was inside the very corner of the United box. 

20:25 (IST)11 FEB 2018

39' OH! Some superb football from Lukaku sees him draw Lascelles out before swinging in a lovely ball that Martial can't really get under. The header smacks into row Z
