Kobbie Mainoo opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark, but Anthony Gordon leveled for Newcastle early in the second half. Lewis Hall’s late goal made for a tense finish, but Manchester United held on to claim the win.

Erik ten Hag’s team now sits eighth in the table, level on points with Newcastle, who hold a better goal difference. Chelsea’s win against Brighton saw Newcastle drop to seventh place.

The match saw a back-and-forth battle, with both teams creating chances. Newcastle’s Martin Dubravka made a crucial save to deny Manchester United’s Scott McTominay. Mainoo capitalized on Diallo’s pass to score before Gordon equalized for Newcastle.

Diallo restored Manchester United’s lead with a powerful strike from outside the box. Newcastle pressed for a late equalizer but were unable to find another goal. Teenager Hojlund sealed the victory with a well-taken shot.
