  • Newcastle stun Man United Firminho Salah hand Liverpool 2-0 win against Southampton

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that he should win the award for the best-behaved manager on the touchline even though the Portuguese manager has been sent to the stands on several occassions in the past.

Karius then tipped over a James Ward-Prowse header and the home side were made to pay for those missed opportunities as Salah played a lovely one-two with Firmino and stroked home his 22nd league goal of an outstanding season. "It wasn't going to happen for us today".

Matt Ritchie's first Premier League goal since May 2016 gave Newcastle United a shock 1-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday and struck a potentially decisive blow in the title race.

The breakthrough came in the 64th minute.Shelvey clipped a free-kick into the box for Florian Lejeune, who headed it down to Dwight Gayle.

"I think it's a lovely feeling in football".

"He did well in his first game to have a clean sheet against Manchester United, it's fantastic for him", added Benitez.

"Newcastle played with their lives and defended with their lives", Mourinho said, having earlier described the opposition as fighting "like animals".

"At the same time, we now have more competition in goal, which can only be positive for the team".

"Clearly I know we lost the duel in the air and it's hard to accept that".

Manchester United fans have been expressing their frustration with Smalling for his role in the defeat to Newcastle, but Mourinho has come to the defence of the England worldwide.

Benitez's mood was understandably lighter as he assessed perhaps the biggest win of his reign to date.

"I think a point was what they had in mind".

"I'm really proud of them because that is the way to be sure that you can stay in the Premier League". "I wanted a better way [in midfield] against a side that was defending in a block".

"I was just trying to get three points against anyone".

Manchester United's season has certainly been marred with inconsistency.
