Newcastle 1 United 0 - Views from the Bench

Following the entertaining, but disappointing result-wise, game at St James Park, both managers spoke to the media.

Jose Mourinho, struggling to work out how the result had gone against his side, had this to say,

'My verdict is we could've been here for 10 hours and not scored a goal. Newcastle played with their lives and defended with their lives.

'They got from us a defensive mistake and from a lateral free-kick they scored. The gods of football were clearly in their side. They must have an amazing feeling after giving absolutely everything.

'We had some chances with the score at 0-0. Alexis had an open goal and then the countless opportunities of the last 20-25 minutes. The double miss of Martial is incredible in the last minute.'


It was but it typified the never-say-die attitude of a Newcastle defence that defended admirably.

As for the Newcastle United boss, Rafael Benitez, he had this to say,

'We worked as hard as other games, but against a team like Manchester United every ball is important, they can punish you, so you work like them. Amazing effort.

'They are dangerous, but the teamwork we showed to fight for every ball was amazing. I am pleased for the players and the fans. Because we won here at home.

'We had games in past when conceded late. We got lucky with some shots, but we showed the character, the commitment and the desire today.'


Congratulations to Newcastle, here`s hoping that with their marvellous support they can preserve their Premier League status.
