Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho on Sky Sports: “They fought like animals – I hope they take that as a compliment. The gods of football were on their side. It wasn’t going to happen for us today. Newcastle gave what they have and what they don’t have, that’s a beautiful thing in football.
Newcastle United are out of the relegation zone, up to 13th in the table.
Manchester United will be looking nervously over their shoulders and this result leaves Manchester City 16 points clear and just six wins from the Premier League title.
Just minutes later, Matt Ritchie popped up to score the only goal of the game, securing Newcastle a much-needed three points in their fight against relegation.
