  • Jose Mourinho has hit back at pundits who question Paul Pogba's best position at United

- Matt Ritchie ended a run of 43 shots this season without scoring in the Premier League, which was the longest such run in the division.

United are now 16 points behind leaders Manchester City, who can win the league if they are victorious in their next six games. "It was not only them, but the gods in football". If our players continue the good work at Tyneside, I don't see why we can not return home with all three points.

Ritchie scored the only goal of the game when he collected a Dwight Gayle flick to shoot past David de Gea after Florian Lejeune had knocked down Jonjo Shelvey's free-kick.

Mourinho has now failed to win at St James' Park in all seven of his Premier League visits, while the result surely ends any residual hope of a late title push.

There was a warm handshake between Benitez and Mourinho when the final whistle sounded at a tumultuous St James' Park to confirm Newcastle's first home league win since October.

"We could be here 10 hours and we wouldn't score a goal", Mourinho told MUTV. The team got off to an impressive start of the season, but they have crashed down to earth in the last few months and are beginning to feel the relegation threat hovering around their heads.

However, United now find themselves in a battle to hold-on to second place as Tottenham are four points behind after beating Arsenal earlier today while Liverpool can move to within just two points if they win at Southampton tomorrow. I think the stadium is really nice, I like the atmosphere.

"It was an intuitive thing". "Alexis [Sanchez] had an open goal and then the countless opportunities of the last 20-25 minutes".

Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was alert to deny Jesse Lingard's low, deflected effort when the Red Devils began to settle, with the imposing debutant doing better still when denying Anthony Martial one-on-one.

Jose Mourinho has insisted his relationship with Paul Pogba remains strong and hit back at the pundits who have been critical of the French global. It was an intuitive thing.

He added: "But I don't want attacking players, so don't speak about attacking players that are coming here, because nobody is coming here".

Manchester United travel to Newcastle United on Sunday, aiming to bag all three points and extend the lead on third-placed Liverpool to 8 points.

"We didn't show up".

"For whatever reason we weren't good enough", United defender Phil Jones said.

"If you continue to press them and press them, you'll get done".
