Manchester United went further than the 1-1 draw at Newcastle. The visitors were allowed to thank goalkeeper David de Gea for this point.
After two convincing victories, Manchester United faced Newcastle with confidence, but after 7 minutes the cup began to falter. Alain Saint-Maximin pressed inside the penalty area and scored the opening goal during the fall.
Manchester United played too sloppy to put things in order quickly: the frustrations visibly increased with Cristiano Ronaldo as well. The Portuguese could not accompany his team.
Substitute Edinson Cavani managed to do just that after the first half. The Uruguayan needed two chances, but managed to score the equalizer. However, it cannot inspire visitors to move on.
On the contrary, United can still be happy that they kept a point. De Gea prevented Mano’s sixth defeat with a great save.
