Newcastle United claimed a 1-0 victory over Manchester United on Saturday night, propelling them into fifth place in the Premier League standings. The defeat prevented the Red Devils from advancing to fifth themselves, as Erik ten Hag’s team succumbed to a well-deserved loss, putting an end to their recent string of strong domestic performances.

In the early stages, Newcastle asserted dominance, nearly capitalizing on a mix-up between Diogo Dalot and Andre Onana. However, a composed recovery by the defender prevented an own goal. Manchester United had their moments too, with a precise pass from Bruno Fernandes setting up Alejandro Garnacho, whose shot from a tight angle was saved by Nick Pope.

Onana made a crucial save when Kieran Trippier’s delivery found Joelinton, and Miguel Almiron’s subsequent attempt was thwarted. The hosts maintained pressure, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s failed clearance leading to an opportunity for Alexander Isak, but Harry Maguire blocked the shot.

Just before halftime, Trippier struck a free-kick off the underside of Onana’s crossbar, signaling Newcastle’s intent to break the deadlock. The breakthrough came after the break when Trippier’s cross found Anthony Gordon, who eluded Wan-Bissaka to score a straightforward tap-in.

Newcastle pressed for a second, and Lewis Miley’s shot was cleared off the line by Wan-Bissaka, who was subsequently cleared of handball following a brief VAR check.

Although Manchester United fought back, substitute Sergio Reguilon’s powerful volley was met with an acrobatic block from Fabian Schar. In the dying minutes of normal time, United appeared to have equalized through Antony’s volley, but the goal was disallowed due to Maguire’s offside position.

After a prolonged nine minutes of added time, Newcastle secured the victory, dealing Manchester United their sixth defeat in 14 Premier League games.
