London, Dec 8: Manchester United slumped to their second home Premier League defeat in the space of four days as Yohan Cabaye’s goal gave Newcastle a first league victory at Old Trafford since 1972, according to reports.
According to BBC, the home side struggled to break down the Magpies, other than a flurry of chances at the start of the second half, with Patrice Evra heading against the post before the ball rebounded against Vurnon Anita’s arm.
Newcastle struck on the break when Cabaye fired home Moussa Sissoko’s cross, the report said.
Robin van Persie had a header disallowed as Manchester United tried to respond, but Newcastle held on for a famous victory, which means home form that had been cause for concern for boss David Moyes is now turning into a crisis, the report added.
The Scot’s side have dropped 13 points out of 24 in front of their own fans this season and suffered back-to-back league defeats at Old Trafford for the first time since the end of the 2001-02 season, the report further said. (ANI)
