Newcastle Hang On To End First Half 1-1 Against Manchester United



After getting an early goal, Newcastle were put under pressure for much of the first half by Manchester United. The half ended level with a goal a piece but the visitors had the bulk of possession and chances.

Newcastle started the match in a 4-1-4-1 with Isaac Hayden sitting behind Jeff Hendrick and Jonjo Shelvey in the midfield. Joelinton was on the right and Allan Saint-Maximin on the left.

The Magpies got off to a very fortunate start with an early counter leading to a goal. Emil Krafth’s 2nd-minute cross was knocked into the net by a sliding Luke Shaw to give Newcastle the lead.


Manchester United enjoyed a bunch of possession after the opening goal but couldn’t create any decent chances to test Karl Darlow until after the 20-minute mark.

Bruno Fernandes had a nice strike disallowed due to VAR ruling Juan Mata offside. The disappointment was short-lived as the Red Devils found an equalizer a few minutes later.

Harry Maguire surged forward to beat Federico Fernandez to a corner in the 23rd minute. His header bounced past a diving Darlow and into the far corner.

Allan Saint-Maximin forced David de Gea into a diving save in the 29th minute. The Frenchman cut inside from the right and launched a shot that de Gea had to parry away. The Spaniard hit the post with his right arm and needed treatment but was able to continue.

Manchester United kept the pressure on Newcastle and forced Karl Darlow into action. Darlow had an excellent punch on a cross and then saved another from Aaron Wan-Bissaka that looked to be going in. On the subsequent corner, Jamaal Lascelles cleared a shot off the line.

Darlow continued his outstanding goalkeeping with another terrific save. This time from Marcus Rashford whose 43rd-minute shot bounced right in front of Darlow as he went down to make the save. He was able to swat it away to keep the match level going into halftime.

    tbf i think thats a penna.

    If that was on ASM id say it was too. Lewis didnt get the ball, anywhere else on the pitch and its a freekick.

    Hendrick obviously must have gone to the JoeLinton school of finishing.

    He really is better than Dubs.

    Fewer mistakes and much better shot stopper.

    Dubs came in and was fantastic on crosses, commanding his box and 1 v 1s which set him apart, but he has deteriorated since.

    Darlow is a great shot stopper, much more agile and has improved on crosses.

    “First time a goalkeeper has saved a Bruno Fernandes penalty since he joined #mufc. Karl Darlow, dancing on line, not put off by his trademark technique. Great stop.”
