Newcastle United 1-1 Manchester United: Post-match analysis

Newcastle United held Manchester United to a 1-1 draw in a crucial Premier League encounter on Monday night at St James’ Park. 

Allan Saint-Maximin scored an early goal for the home side before the second half substitute Edinson Cavani scored the equaliser to earn a point against Eddie Howe’s side. 

The Red Devils were outplayed by the host in the first half and could not manage to create many chances for the attackers. But, they displayed better performance in the second half. But it was not enough to win the game. 

After this draw, Manchester United are currently sitting seventh in the Premier League table with 28 points in 17 games. Seven points behind the fourth-placed Arsenal who have played two games extra. And one point behind the fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur who have one extra game in hand. 

On the other hand, Newcastle United will be disappointed with this result and should have earned all three points. But, they only managed to come away with one point. And they are currently 19th in the table with 11 points in 19 games. 

Newcastle United 1-1 Manchester United:

Newcastle United have now dropped 19 points from the winning position. This is more than any other team in the Premier League this campaign. On the other hand, Manchester United have now scored 113 goals against the Magpies. This is highest by any team against any other team. 

After the game speaking on the club’s media, Rangnick said that he was disappointed with his team’s performance and the Red Devils need to be more clinical with their passing. And also have to improve physically to compete in the Premier League. He said:

“I didn’t like it [the performance] at all. We’ve been trying to get better at controlling games – today, we didn’t control the game apart from a few moments. It’s all about energy, physicality and who wins the second balls and the transitional moments and, in all those areas, we were not at our best. In the end, we got a point but the performance overall needs to get better. Against Palace, we were better, that was a different game and we played at home. We then had two away games at Norwich and here at Newcastle and, as I said, it’s about physicality, it’s about energy.”

The upcoming fixtures for both teams:

Newcastle United will travel to Merseyside to encounter Everton in their next game on Thursday night and Manchester United will welcome Burnley on the same day in the Premier League.
