Newcastle United are still without a win in the Premier League this season.
Despite leading 2-0 yesterday, Newcastle still ended up on the losing side.
After just 10 minutes, goals from Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto had put the Magpies 2-0 up at Old Trafford.
It looked like it was going to be a stunning victory for Rafa Benitez’s men, who started the day in the relegation zone alongside Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town.
And they ended the day with a loss as well, blowing their two-goal lead late in the game.
Juan Mata grabbed one back for Man United with 20 minutes left to play and suddenly the home side believed.
After losing to West Ham last week and drawing 0-0 with Valencia in midweek, it looked bleak for Jose Mourinho’s side.
But they rallied and soon had the equaliser. Anthony Martial levelled the scores on 76 minutes.
And the Red Devils claimed a late win through Alexis Sanchez. Here is what Newcastle fans said about Benitez after the match.
In Rafa We Trust

Rafa needs to be sacked after that performance, I don’t care how bad the owner is, you were up 2-0 and you lost it! Bad coaching
