Man Utd boss Mourinho fighting personal history at Newcastle

Newcastle upset the odds on Sunday by beating Manchester United 1-0 at St. James' Park courtesy of second-half Matt Ritchie goal.

United head to St James's Park to take on Newcastle on Sunday, with Mourinho never having won a league game on Tyneside in six attempts.

The omens do not look good for Newcastle whose recent record against the Red Devils is bad, having won just two of their last 28 games against Jose Mourinho's men and they have failed to win any of their last six encounters.

Newcastle had kicked off in the relegation zone, but a first win in five league games - their first success against United since 2013 - lifts them to 13th place. 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. In the second half, we had Alexis [Sanchez] with an open goal and then we had an accumulation of situations where it's incredible that we didn't score.

Newcastle made a strong start and were nearly ahead after five minutes when the ball broke to Jonjo Shelvey on the edge of the box and his strike brought an excellent save from David De Gea.

"I remember the Newcastle player -jumping and two of my players -standing and looking at him".

Matt Ritchie's 65th-minute goal consigned the Red Devils to their fifth league defeat of the season.

The government claims the results have been tragic - and left government agencies with millions in social and health care costs. Purdue's promotions exaggerated the drug's safety and risks of addiction, leading to lawsuits and federal investigations.

It was a rare moment of quality from United and they were fortunate not to concede a penalty before the interval, with referee Craig Pawson unmoved after Dwight Gayle when to ground after being caught by Chris Smalling.

"They got from us a defensive mistake and from a free-kick they scored".

Here's the predicted 4-2-3-1 Manchester United lineup to feature against the Magpies today.

"When he's asked to do a job centrally, he's forever straying towards the touchline trying to get on the ball".

The defender was cautioned and further punishment was to follow when Shelvey delivered the free-kick. They continued to ramp up the pressure in the closing minutes, and Dubravka saved brilliantly from Carrick in stoppage time to secure the win.

"Romelu Lukaku is in his first season in the Champions League, Marcus Rashford maybe played a couple of matches with Mr Van Gaal, the same with Jesse Lingard, and Anthony Martial one season with Monaco and a couple of matches here".

Newcastle took the lead at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture before a rampant United side responded with four goals to claim all three points.
