The only goal of the game was scored by Anthony Gordon. It was scored after some build-up play which resulted in the ball being played in behind Luke Shaw to Kieran Trippier, who subsequently squared it to Gordon.
The scoreline ended up flattering the visitors as the balance during the game was dominated soundly by Newcastle, who will feel as if they should have scored more.
Player Ratings - Newcastle United
Kieran Trippier - 9/10 - A mighty performance from the England international. He had the beating of both Diogo Dalot and Alejandro Garnacho throughout and this did not change throughout. A quality performance deemed just deserts as he assisted Gordon.
Bruno Guimaraes - 7/10 - Broke up play when called upon defensively and dictated the tempo of Newcastle's build-up very efficiently.
Lewis Miley - 7/10 - Wasn't scared at either making a tackle or taking on a player, it was an extremely mature performance from the young man.
Miguel Almiron - 6/10 - Provided options when other players were in position, however did not do much with the ball himself.
Player Ratings - Manchester United
Aaron Wan-Bissaka - 4/10 - Struggled to contain Gordon all night and lost track of him completely for the goal.
Harry Maguire - 8/10 - Provided a real bright spot for United fans. Was heroic at defending his box and when on the ball he looked composed and confident.
Luke Shaw - 6/10 - Did well at defending his box, not looking out of place as one of the two central defenders. However, when playing with the ball his passes were often short and misplaced.
Diogo Dalot - 3/10 - Was really poor going forward and created nothing. His first touch was poor throughout and was completely anonymous defending. Often absent when covering the overlap.
Scott McTominay - 4/10 - Offered nothing on the ball. Was never an option to receive the ball from either the other midfielders or a defender. And looked weak when going in for challenges.
Kobbie Mainoo - 6/10 - Looked very mature on the balland tried to create space but was not enough to create anything. An example of effort which should shame some of the other more experienced players.
Bruno Fernandes - 5/10 - Started the game brightly, moving the ball forwards, however when the team lost control of possession his influence faded.
Marcus Rashford - 3/10 - Showed very little effort after the initial attempts to beat his man and was absent completely when asked to follow his runner for most of the game.
Alejandro Garnacho - 5/10 - Failed to create much of anything however looked bright when given the rare opportunity to make a run.
Anthony Martial - 3/10 - Was a poor goal threat throughout the game, offered no hold-up play and when tasked to press it seemed lacklustre and half-hearted.
