After a goalless first half, Joe Willock gave Newcastle the lead with 25 minutes remaining as he headed in from close range following Allan Saint-Maximin’s header across goal. The Magpies had chance to extend their lead with Joelinton and Fabian Schar both coming close but a fine display from Man United goalkeeper David De Gea kept his side in the game.
