Newcastle United 1-1 Manchester United player ratings: A 9 and TWO 8s as Magpies put in best performance under Eddie Howe

Newcastle United drew 1-1 against Manchester United at St James’s Park on Monday evening – but how did the players fare?

Allan Saint-Maximin opened the scoring after seven minutes to give Newcastle an early lead before substitute Edinson Cavani equalised for Manchester United in the second half.

The Magpies pushed for a winner but were held thanks to a number of fine saves from Red Devils goalkeeper David De Gea.

De Gea denied Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron while Jacob Murphy hit the post.

The result keeps Newcastle 19th in the table, level on points with 18th place Burnley who have four games in hand. They are two points from safety.

NUFC line-up: Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Lascelles, Manquillo, Shelvey, S Longstaff, Joelinton, Fraser (Almiron, 74), Saint-Maximin (Gayle, 83), Wilson (Murphy, 45). Subs not used: Woodman, Gillespie, Hendrick, Murphy, Anderson, White.
