EPL: Newcastle United beat Man United 2-0 at the St. James’ Park

Newcastle United whitewashed Manchester United by 2-0 to secure a third place on the Premier League table.

The Magpies produced an astonishing display at the St James’ Park which necessitated the victory over Eric Ten Hags men.

Manchester United, despite failing to register an attempt on target in the first half, have not tasted victory in the Premier League since ending their six-year trophy drought at Wembley in February.

David de Gea made some excellent first-half double saves, denying Joe Willock after clawing away Alexander Isak’s header.

Willock wasted another glorious chance after finishing wildly but the former Arsenal midfielder was in the right place to nod home the opener after Bruno Guimaraes’ cross was headed across goal by Allan Saint-Maximin.

The hosts deservedly doubled their lead in the 88th minute with a well-placed header by substitute Callum Wilson.

Manchester United could slide down to fifth position depending on the outcome of the game between Tottenham and Everton at the Goodison Park tonight.
