Newcastle vs Manchester United LIVE!
Newcastle are celebrating a second win over Manchester United in a month and first pair of back-to-back league victories over the Red Devils since all the way back in 1972. Anthony Gordon continued his brilliant recent form with the only goal of the game 10 minutes after half-time at a freezing St James’ Park on Saturday night.
A narrow but fully deserved triumph for the high-flying Magpies – who beat the same opponents in the Carabao Cup fourth round in November – takes them above both Manchester United and Tottenham into fifth place in the Premier League table, with a trip to relegation-battling Everton to come next on Thursday night. Eddie Howe will be concerned about the status of first-choice goalkeeper Nick Pope, who suffered a shoulder problem late on to add to the ongoing injury crisis on Tyneside.
Woeful Man Utd‘s strong recent run of domestic form is over however, with Chelsea the high-profile visitors to Old Trafford on Wednesday evening. Follow Man United vs Newcastle reaction live below!

Live updates
Full-time
An in the end narrow but fully deserved latest home win for Newcastle, who leapfrog both Manchester United and Tottenham into fifth place ahead of a trip to Everton on Thursday.
Gordon keeps up his excellent form, but there will be a lot of concern about that injury to Pope.
Manchester United got what they deserved in the end – nothing.
They are seventh now and have a high-profile visit from Chelsea to contend with at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
97 mins: Joelinton booked for dissent before Newcastle replace goalscorer Gordon with Matt Ritchie.
Manchester United with another corner, but Amrabat ends up volleying woefully into the stands.
96 mins: More Manchester United pressure, but Dubravka gratefully claims at the second attempt.
Maguire out on the right wing as the visitors search for a dramatic late equaliser!
Antony was booked for wiping out Livramento earlier in stoppage time, by the way.
94 mins: Solid defending there from Amrabat as Newcastle pressed for a last-gasp second goal to put this game to bed.
But suddenly it’s very nervy again as Manchester United get another corner, Lascelles rising high to clear Bruno Fernandes’ delivery from the right with an emphatic header.
90 mins: Newcastle fans were unhappy that only one minute of stoppage time was added at the end of the first half.
They are now furious with the NINE signalled in the second…
89 mins: GOOAAA… NO!
Manchester United think they have a late equaliser as Antony’s volley deflects past Dubravka off the chest of Maguire.

Newcastle suddenly look a bit rattled…
85 mins: It’s a shoulder injury for Pope, who is in a lot of pain.
Another huge injury blow for Newcastle, who had yet to make a substitution again tonight. Eddie Howe will be praying that’s not as serious as it looks.
Newcastle have both Dubravka and fellow goalkeeper Loris Karius on the bench tonight, but it’s the former who will eventually come on once he’s ready.
Can Manchester United exploit this late disruption?
82 mins: After Garnacho’s cross is blocked, Manchester United finally have their first corner of the night – just eight minutes away from the 90.
Schar makes a great block to keep out Reguilon’s well-hit volley.
Pope was at full stretch behind Schar there and has really hurt himself. He’s in a lot of discomfort.
Deputy goalkeeper and former Manchester United loanee Martin Dubravka is warming up.
81 mins: Two more changes from Ten Hag inside the final 10 minutes.
Amrabat and Reguilon replace Mainoo and Wan-Bissaka.
Has Schar hurt his hamstring here? The Newcastle bench appear concerned.
