Newcastle United 0-1 Manchester United - KEY MOMENTS

KEY MOMENTS

10’ – NO PENALTY! Huge shouts from the St James’ Park terraces as Emmanuel Riviere goes down under challenge from Chris Smalling. Referee Anthony Taylor is having none of it. Replays show that there was contact, but nothing given.

26’ – WHAT A MISS! Huge opportunity for Rooney. Great touch from Young kills the ball into the path of the England captain, but with the flag staying down, he drags the shot wide from the penalty spot. Time seemed to stand still with everyone expecting the flag. Right call, but Rooney should have buried that

44’ – SAVE! Fellaini gets up well at the back post too meet a Valencia cross, but Krul is equal to it, and beats the ball away. Needed more power.

48′ – SAVE! Save of the match from David de Gea. Riviere looks destined to score at the back post, but his toe-poke from close range is clawed away by the Spaniard.

54’ – DOUBLE SAVE! How has Krul kept the scores level!?! Marouane Fellaini is onside, brings the ball down, lashes it at goal, but Krul somehow gets a hand to it to keep hit out, and then has the energy to get up quickly to thwart Young on the rebound. Stunning from a ‘keeper Van Gaal knows all too well.

64’ – What a moment! Jonas Gutierrez is coming on. This is his first appearance since recovering from testicular cancer. He replaces Ryan Taylor. What an ovation. Roof is coming off! Very emotional scenes.

89’ – GOAL! Newcastle 0 Manchester United 1. The scrappiest of goals gifts United a massive three points! Krul made a mess of a clearance, and Young was on hand to side foot home to snatch a vital win for the visitors.
