Newcastle rock Man Utd as Huddersfield win at last

Matt Ritchie scored the only goal in the second half as Manchester United left empty handed

For Rafa Benitez's Newcastle side, after failing to make a permanent signing during the January transfer window, the Magpies now find themselves sat in 16th spot and involved at the heart of a relegation battle. January signings Martin Dubravka and Islam Slimani could make their debuts, although Rafa Benitez might prefer more experienced players in this game, especially on the goalkeeper role.

Man City broke the deadlock inside three minutes, with Sterling going some way to atoning for his costly miss against Burnley last weekend by this time converting from close range.

The free-kick which led to Ritchie's goal came when Red Devils centre-back Chris Smalling was adjudged to have dive.

The Scotsman did reserve praise for United veteran Michael Carrick, whom he describes as a "class act".

This once again raises the question of how to get the best out of Paul Pogba.

"Manchester United are a huge club on the global stage".

But that much was painfully clear on the pitch anyway. Pogba was anonymous throughout and was more of a liability than anything else. The midfielder won every second ball - his work-rate was unbelievable.

"To play free of defensive duties, that's not "box to box". Possibly his best performance in a Newcastle shirt.

Newcastle United substitutes: Darlow, Murphy, Hayden, Manquillo, Joselu, Merino, Atsu. You can not rely on him. Gayle is bundled over by Smalling just inside the box! Little quality chances followed that, except for a foul on Dwight Gayle that should have been a penalty, but was not rewarded.

While Mourinho is largely happy with the state of refereeing in the English game, he feels he has a duty to speak up and try and protect his players when he feels they have been singled out for rough treatment. And, for me, Paul is a midfield player.

The Frenchman appeared to wince in pain after taking a shot in the warm-up at St James' Park and, having spoken to Rui Faria, went back down the tunnel. United looked to hit straight back as Young cut in from the left and fired a wicked effort at goal which Dubravka palmed away, before Martial was somehow denied twice by the Newcastle defence from five yards following a corner. The same can not be said for Newcastle keepers - Karl Darlow & Rob Elliot, both are good shot stoppers and Darlows' incredible reflexes have kept the score down numerous times for the Mags'.

With the three points, Newcastle go from being in 17th to 13th. It's their first win at home in nearly FOUR months!
