Newcastle United suffered heartache at Old Trafford after threatening to win their first game of the season.
Earlier in the week Kevin Keegan had revealed in his book that watching Newcastle lose the 1996 Premier League title to Man United was like watching a “beautiful painting” destroyed piece by piece.

For older fans the scars of that 12-point lead being torn away still remains and this was just as cruel.
Here, the younger generation experienced something similar as the current side swept into what felt like an unassailable lead in the first 10 minutes only to see victory ripped away from them.
United boss Mourinho was delighted to see his side show great spirit in the second half to take all three points on Saturday
