Manchester United lost at relegation-haunted Newcastle United with Matty Longstaff’s debut goal consigning the Old Trafford giants to yet another defeat after a poor display.

On a day when their neighbour, Manchester City lost at home, the Mancunians’ performance at lowly Newcastle United was not a sight to behold.

The loss was Man United’s third of the season and consigned them to 13th position going into the international break, two points away from relegation zone.

Newcastle United, winless in four league games before this match, climbed out relegation places with the win.

Man United, who had not won in their last two league games, boast only one win in six games and have failed to score more than a goal since their opening day 4-0 win over Chelsea.

A poor first half saw few chances and they fell to Newcastle with Longstaff hitting the bar and Fabian Schaar heading wide.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side improved in the second half but it was Newcastle United — trounced 5-0 last weekend by Leicester City — who created the better chances.

The breakthrough goal finally came in the 72nd minute through the youngster whose brother and teammate, Sean, was courted by Manchester United in the summer.

Playing his first ever EPL game, the 19-year old latched on to Jethro Willems’ cut back and blasted a 25-yard shot past a hapless David de Gea dive into the net.

The youngster’s goal made him Newcastle’s youngest EPL debut scorer.

The Red Devils attempted a feeble comeback but could not break down Newcastle’s five-man defence, and VAR correctly ruled against giving the visitors a last minute penalty.

Manchester United’s next league game is against unbeaten league leaders and arch rivals, Liverpool at Old Trafford, after the international break.
