Anthony Gordon’s 55th minute goal was enough to earn Newcastle United a precious victory over Manchester United in Saturday’s Premier League game.
Newcastle’s win means they have beaten Manchester United in three consecutive games for the first time in more than a century.
Recall that Newcastle recorded an emphatic 3-0 victory at OId Trafford in the Carabao Cup to knockout the Red Devils from the competition.
Howe’s already injury-ravaged side should have been in front before the break as Alexander Isak’s shot was deflected narrowly wide by Harry Maguire before Trippier’s brilliantly struck free-kick bounced to safety off the underside of the bar.
After a dominant display from the host, their hard work was finally rewarded thanks to a goal from Gordon who calmly tapped in Kieran Trippier’s low cross at the far post to give Newcastle a richly deserved success that took them above their opponents and to within reach of the Premier League’s top four.
