EPL Match report on the Red Devils loss:” Matt Ritchie scored the only goal as Newcastle United beat Manchester United for their first league win at St James’ Park since October.
The winger struck on 65 minutes after Florian Lejeune had denied Alexis Sanchez an open goal at the other end.
In the first half David De Gea saved from Jonjo Shelvey and Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka on his debut denied Anthony Martial one-on-one.
Ritchie’s first goal of the season came when Lejeune and Dwight Gayle flicked on Shelvey’s deep free-kick for the unmarked Scot to finish.
Man Utd were denied an equaliser by two goal-saving blocks by Gayle and a stoppage-time save by Dubravka.
The win lifts Newcastle out of the relegation zone to 13th. Man Utd remain second, but 16 points behind Manchester City and four ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.”
EPL Match Report on the Reds win:” Liverpool eased past Southampton 2-0 to close to within two points of Manchester United in second.
The visiting team at St Mary’s led after just six minutes when Wesley Hoedt was unable to stop a ball down the channel and Mohamed Salah squared for Roberto Firmino to score.
Southampton responded well with Loris Karius frequently called into action in the Reds goal, but Liverpool went into the break 2-0 up thanks to Firmino’s skill.
His backheel on the edge of the area played in Salah to finish comfortably.
Liverpool eased off in the second half but still threatened more than Southampton, for whom the defeat and other results on Sunday mean they finish the weekend in the relegation zone.”
