[Video Highlights] Newcastle 0-1 Man Utd: Lucky Utd As Krul Gifts Late Winner

By on March 4, 2015

Manchester United were fortunate to come away with the three points as an error from Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul gifted them a late 1-0 win at St James’ Park on Wednesday night.

The 20-time Premier League champions edged the first half with Wayne Rooney missing their best chance while he also had a goal ruled out for a close offside call.

Newcastle improved after the break and United goalkeeper David De Gea made a couple of excellent close range saves to keep the scores level.

With the game looking set to end 0-0, Rooney’s persistence caused problems in the Newcastle back line and Krul rushed to clear a back-pass which fell straight to Ashley Young who fired home an 89th minute winner.

The win sees Utd keep pace with third-placed Arsenal after the Gunners beat QPR 2-1, while Liverpool and Tottenham also registered victories to keep the race for the top four wide open.
