Newcastle player ratings v Manchester United: One man weak link in outstanding team display
Newcastle United pulled off a brilliant performance to stun Manchester United at St James’ Park with a 1-0 win.
The Magpies took the lead against the side sitting second in the Premier League table thanks to Matt Ritchie’s low first time strike as he strode onto the ball in the middle of the box, after a well worked set piece from Jonjo Shelvey.
It was a hard working performance from Rafael Benitez’s men, with goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who was making his first appearance for the club since his January signing, and his back line tested on several occasions by the visitors.
However they stood firm for a shock win, in what is a big boost for their survival hopes.
