Newcastle exacts revenge on Manchester United

Newcastle had to turn the page as quickly as possible. Last Tuesday, Eddie Howe’s men had not been varnished. Travelling to Paris Saint-Germain on Matchday 5 of the Champions League group stage, they were held to a 1-1 draw by the Parisians, who were awarded a generous penalty by VAR.

Newcastle had to turn the page as quickly as possible. Last Tuesday, Eddie Howe’s men had not been varnished. Travelling to Paris Saint-Germain on Matchday 5 of the Champions League group stage, they were held to a 1-1 draw by the Parisians, who were awarded a generous penalty by VAR. Four days later, the Magpies were determined to get back to winning ways, and it was their rs to equalize, even if they thought for a few seconds that Antony had succeeded. But the former Ajax man’s shot, unintentionally deflected by Maguire in an offside position, was logically cancelled out (89th).

Historic victory

Newcastle suffered a blow with the injury to the hero of their match against PSG. Visibly injured in the left shoulder, Pope was forced to make way for Dubravka. The goalkeeper could be out for several days, or even weeks. Be that as it may, the Toons’ success sees them leapfrog Manchester United into fifth place, two places and two points ahead of the Red Devils. Newcastle are now on a run of three straight wins over United in the last 2 seasons.
