(Newcastle-Manchester United 1-1) Edinson Cavani (34) came off the bench before the second half and saved one point for Manchester United with a equalizing 19 minutes before the end.
We meet Burnley in three days, and Wolverhampton three or four days later. There are two games at home, and then we have to play better than we did now. More physically, with better accuracy, says Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United coach, in an interview shown on TV 2 after the match in Newcastle.
He also says “No”, he did not like what the chosen one showed. never.
We didn’t control the game except in some cases. We’ve got one point. it was good. But we must improve, “above all,” adds Ole’s successor Gunnar Solskjaer.
Three minutes before the end, Jacob Murphy was so close to making it 2-1 – and becoming the likely match winner – for Newcastle, he pulled freely on his way to United’s 16m box from the left.
He hit the ball at the left post behind United goalkeeper David de Gea, who saved the “return” by extending it to his right cross and tilting it from Miguel Almiron over the crossbar.
– He wins the ball again when (Rafael) Varane turns away, TV 2 expert Petter Myhre of the rights holder’s studio said after the first half.
This was his comment on the 1-0 rematch for the home team from Alain Saint-Maximin. The goal came just seven minutes later, as Manchester United’s Varane (28) not keeping pace – and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin (24) with excellent footwork made them teeter between the home team’s raucous fans at St. James.
Two minutes into the second half can – should! Saint-Maximin led 2-0 behind United goalkeeper David de Gea (who brilliantly saved the reaction). It turned out he hadn’t done so at the time and there was a semi-enigma. On inspection, it can be partially forgiven. Sean Longstaff’s slate from the right was stiff, the ball “hit” by Saint-Maximin’s heel. Anyway – what every day, sort of?
Crazy Boxing Day, 1963
“There is disappointment in the locker room now, but now we know we can put in performances like this and give us a boost of confidence,” said Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff after the match.
He realizes that he is still at the bottom of the table worth all the points.
And what was Manchester United doing every day? First-choice men from rescue team Ralph Rangnick should be described as ‘under all criticism’, against Newcastle – with one Premier League win ahead of a United ‘must win’ game.
Newcastle is very much looking forward. Many mismatches from Manchester United. Preparing to attack as Manchester go on strike by Newcastle, TV 2-Myhre summary after 45 minutes (plus an additional five minutes).
It also fit the second half of the match. In addition, frustration quickly spread across the United squad, from Ronaldo (yellow card for a headless intervention) to captain Maguire (yellow card for a very late intervention).

But in the 71st minute, Portuguese compatriot Bruno Fernande Diogo Dalot played freely on the right wing. Dalot kicked the ball in the direction of Edinson Cavani, who also shot in cash – twice.
The first end did not reach the net behind Newcastle’s Slovak goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, but scored the second goal – the return – from substitute Cavani in the second half.
– I think there’s a lot Rangnick (“hate”) will hate when it comes to tonight’s performance. According to Sky Sports, former United player Gary Neville said he must have really not liked this performance.
