Newcastle United 1 Manchester United 0

The Red Devils slumped to their second Premier League defeat in three games to leave them only two points ahead of third-placed Liverpool FC as the race for Champions League qualification hots up.

Mourinho bemoaned his side's defending for Ritchie's victor, and contrasted his own players' lack of urgency in that situation to the frenzied effort that secured Newcastle all three points.

"We did well, although still we were a little bit lucky at the end".

"The last four or five minutes, you could hear the crowd really drilling us on - you couldn't even talk to someone on the pitch because the fans were so loud", he added. "But it was a really great game against a very good team, a top side who everybody knows how good they are". "At this time, it is a boost for everyone, and it keeps the team believing that we can win against any team".

"I just look at Newcastle and kind of go, 'am I convinced Slimani will get loads of goals for Newcastle?' No I'm not convinced at all".

"It was going to be pretty tough at the beginning", said forward Perez.

"If we understand that and we are behind the players, they can perform like today". At the minute, we're in a good position, and we could be in a better one.


Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has revealed that the club has an option to buy Martin Dubravka at the end of the season. "Still we have 11 games to play".

"In the first half they were making a lot of mistakes, passing the ball around but it was down to our pressing", the defender proclaimed.

"The home games can make a difference".

You can see why Lawro is refusing to get carried away with Newcastle's new centre-forward. "We know it and we're working on it".

The Magpies face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in their next game on February 24 who suffered their first defeat in six games in a 4-1 loss to Huddersfield Town on Sunday.
