Newcastle fans react to Dubravka debut v Manchester United

The Manchester United boss has failed to win in his six top-flight visits to Newcastle The Manchester United boss has failed to win in his six top-flight visits to Newcastle

Shortly after Matt Ritchie had slotted home what would turn out to be Newcastle United's victor, Jose Mourinho replaced Paul Pogba and asked his Manchester United side to chase the game without their most expensive signing.

After being named on the bench against Crystal Palace in his first game, he replaced Karl Darlow in the starting XI as the Red Devils visited St James' Park, joining fellow January arrival Kenedy in the team while Islam Slimani remained an absentee, and was outstanding in the 1-0 victory.

And Mourinho admitted that the home side deserved their three points following the impressive way in which they performed against his side.

The statistics will tell you that Mourinho's side don't have too bad a record defensively - 19 conceded in 27 league games - but in truth they look a shambles all too often and are regularly bailed out by the brilliance of goalkeeper David de Gea.

Some weeks, Jose Mourinho's side look like they can conquer the best world football has to offer and then in some fixtures, they look a pale shadow of a top six Premier League side. It wasn't going to happen for us today.




United headed into the fixture firm favourites with many expecting a routine win but it was Rafael Benitez's men who managed to get all three points. We made a defensive mistake with the free-kick [in the build-up to the goal] and, when they were in front, they gave their lives to keep a clean sheet. Smalling somehow decided it was a good idea to anticipate a Jonjo Shelvey challenge that never arrived as he carried the ball out of defence, taking a dive which rightly earned him a yellow card and gave Newcastle an attacking free-kick just when they had been looking vulnerable at the back themselves.

Souness described Pogba as playing " like a schoolboy running after the ball in the playground " in a newspaper column, a week after the France worldwide was dropped to the bench for a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

Paul Pogba appeared to pick up an injury in the warm-up but played for 60 minutes - albeit very poorly - while Chris Smalling certainly didn't have his best game in a United shirt.

"I wanted the simplicity of Michael Carrick and I wanted Alexis closer to Lukaku where he could be like a second striker".
