United stunned by Newcastle
    2018-February-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

JOSE MOURINHO‘S Manchester United was surprisingly beaten 1-0 by Newcastle on Sunday for a second loss in its last three Premier League games.

Matt Ritchie’s 65th-minute goal — following a free kick awarded for a dive by United defender Chris Smalling — gave Newcastle a victory that lifted it out of the relegation zone.

It is now seven Premier League matches without a win at Newcastle’s ground for Mourinho, who lost three and drew three there across two stints in charge of Chelsea.

More importantly for the Portuguese coach, second-placed United wasted a chance to pull clear of its rivals for Champions League qualification, with Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea still in range. Manchester City, which beat Leicester 5-1 Saturday, holds a 16-point lead with 11 games left.

Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka had a Premier League debut to remember, saving brilliantly in the first half from Anthony Martial, in the final seconds from Michael Carrick, and looking assured as United piled on the pressure in the second half.

Alexis Sanchez delayed his shot in front of an open goal and saw his effort blocked, while Martial also had two efforts blocked near the goal line by Dwight Gayle.

“They fought like animals,” Mourinho said.

“They gave their lives to keep a clean sheet,” he added. “It was not only them, but the gods in football.” (SD-Agencies)
