Jose Mourinho goes all out in praising Newcastle

Jose Mourinho goes all out in praising Newcastle

Newcastle had beaten Manchester United once in the previous 10 games between the two teams at St James' Park.

The Scotland winger converted the free kick, which was set up by Chris Smalling taking a dive.

Manchester United will meet with Huddersfield Town again next weekend in the fifth round of the FA Cup, with the former Real Madrid manager hoping for a more subtle approach from the Terriers towards Alexis Sanchez, after he became the most fouled player in the Premier League last weekend.

More importantly for the Portuguese coach, second-placed United wasted a chance to pull clear of its rivals for Champions League qualification, with Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea still in range.

Earlier in the half Newcastle's debutant goalkeeper Martin Dubravka - on loan from Sparta Prague - had denied Anthony Martial when the Frenchman was released by Nemanja Matic.

Malik Astin signed with Lane College, Corintheus Edmond chose Delta State University and Caleb Jones picked Allen University. After a short stint with Mississippi State, Fountain is heading back to Georgia for an on-field assistant job.

The 24-year-old was sidelined for two months before Pogba returned to the Red Devils side for their 4-1 win against Newcastle United back in November.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he ought to be given an award for his composure on the touchline.

The breakthrough came in the 64th minute.Shelvey clipped a free-kick into the box for Florian Lejeune, who headed it down to Dwight Gayle.

Mourinho would be extremely cautious about throwing him straight back into action today, although his squad is otherwise in reasonably good health. "Players (who do it) in the box deserve a card more than Smalling in that situation", Mourinho added. "They gave everything they had and the gods of football were with them. All of this combination - his experience, his talent, his mentality - makes a player that I like".

Ayoze Perez shot wide from range moments later, and the visitors were then grateful to Chris Smalling for some cool defending when DeAndre Yedlin got in a unsafe cross.

Jerome Powell sworn in as new Fed chair
Jerome Powell took office as chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System on Monday, for a four-year term. He studied politics at Princeton University, before earning a law degree from Georgetown University.

"It was not just up to them, it was also the gods of football, but I repeat it's a handsome thing to win a match the way they did".

And that run extended to seven matches after Matt Ritchie stunned the visitors with a 65th-minute victor.

The omens do not look good for Newcastle whose recent record against the Red Devils is very bad, having won just two of their last 28 games against Jose Mourinho's men and they have failed to win any of their last six encounters.

"The double miss of Martial is incredible".

"We had games in the past when we conceded late".
