Newcastle v Man United LIVE stream: Result and reaction as Magpies win but Nick Pope off injured

Ten Hag dismisses criticism with insistence that Man Utd team ‘in development’

Manchester United travel to Newcastle United this evening as both sides look to put weeknight Champions League woes behind them and consolidate form in the Premier League.

Newcastle go into the game a point behind Manchester United in the table, although they have lost one fewer game than Erik ten Hag’s men. But at St James’ Park, Newcastle have been a powerhouse this season, winning six of their matches at home, and losing just one, having netted 14 goals in the process.

Both sides have been dealing with injury concerns this season, although Magpie woes are more acute, they were forced to field teenagers on the bench against Paris Saint Germain in midweek, and were unable to make any tactical substitutions.

Eddie Howe will be without 11 players for the match, while Ten Hag has been able to welcome back Luke Shaw in recent weeks, but United could be without seven senior members of the squad.

THAT’S IT! Newcastle hold on for a well-deserved win. Anthony Gordon’s second-half goal enough to seal three points, although their injury woes deepened with Nick Pope’s shoulder issue.

Back to back league wins over Man United for the first since 1972 for the Magpies!

90+7 mins: Joelinton a yellow card for dissent. Finally a ‘tactical’ sub from Newcastle as Matt Ritchie comes on for Anthony Gordon.

Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United

90+6 mins: Fernandes whips it in, Dubravka comes for it, a slight initial spill but keeps the ball close and is able to gather. Good goalkeeping for a man who has just come on

Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United

90+5 mins: Great header clear by Lascelles as Fernandes whips in a Man Utd corner. Now there’s a foul on Garnacho by Guimaraes to give the Red Devils an attacking free-kick on the left.

They’re suddenly all over the Magpies.

Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United

90+4 mins: All United now as Garnacho gets to the byline but his cross is cut out. And Newcastle break through Isak. He weaves in and out before going down on the edge of the box under pressure from Amrabat and Shaw. But referee waves play on

Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United

90+1 mins: Nine minutes of injury time and Newcastle are starting to hold on a bit. A repeat of midweek?

Antony lunges in as Livramento breaks down the left and brings him down. Gets a yellow card for his troubles.

NO GOAL! Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United

89 mins: MAN UNITED HAVE SCORED! OUT OF NOWHERE! But wait… The flag goes up and it’s ruled offside.

Newcastle are starting to come under pressure and as they get men forward, Antony strikes it in the box and the ball flies into the bottom corner. But Maguire is standing in an offside position and it brushes his chest on the way past, so it’s ruled out for offside! Correctly so. But what a let-off for the Magpies
