Twitter explodes as Manchester United suffer damaging 2-0 defeat against Newcastle

On Sunday (April 2), Newcastle United secured an impressive victory over Manchester United, defeating them 2-0.

The Red Devils delivered a disappointing performance and as a result, have been pushed down to fourth place in the standings by the Magpies.

In the early stages of the match, Newcastle United put Manchester United under significant pressure.

The Red Devils’ goalkeeper, David de Gea, made an excellent double save in the 15th minute to deny Alexander Isak’s header and a deflection off Jacob Murphy.

Additionally, Luke Shaw, Manchester United’s left-back, had a difficult time dealing with Murphy’s skill and talent, as he caused several problems for Shaw on the left flank.

Murphy’s flashes of brilliance made it challenging for the English defender to contain him.

In the 38th minute, Sean Longstaff came close to scoring for Newcastle United with a fierce strike that narrowly missed the target.

Just a minute later, Joe Willock had an excellent opportunity to put his team ahead, but he missed the target with his shot, sending it high over the crossbar.

Despite creating many chances, Eddie Howe’s side continued to squander their opportunities

Manchester United’s best chance of the first half came in the 21st minute when Antony got a chance to score.

The Brazilian managed to sneak in at the back post to meet Luke Shaw’s corner, but his volley was off-target.

In the early stages of the second half, Ajax continued to be dominated by Newcastle United. In the 56th minute, Fabian Schar attempted a shot at goal from 30 yards out, but the ball missed the target.

Newcastle United finally took a well-deserved lead in the 64th minute.

Bruno Guimaraes crossed the ball, which was headed across the goal by Allan Saint-Maximin.

Joe Willock met the ball with a header of his own, scoring the goal that sent St James’ Park into a frenzy.

David de Gea was a hero for Manchester United in the 75th minute, making an incredible save to deny Joelinton’s header.

The Spanish goalkeeper tipped the ball onto the bar, and then Anthony Martial did an excellent job clearing Schar’s header off the line.

In the 88th minute, Eddie Howe’s team secured all three points with a goal from Callum Wilson, who flicked in Kieran Trippier’s superb free kick.

With this result, Newcastle United moved ahead of the Red Devils into fourth place, based on goal difference. Unfortunately, it was a poor performance from Ten Hag’s team, with one fan expressing their disappointment on Twitter.

“Our past three PL games have been nothing short of embarrassing.”

Meanwhile, another fan is blaming Casemiro’s four-match suspension on the defeat:

“This is all Casemiro’s fault when you deep it.”

Here’s how Twitter reacted to a poor showing from the Red Devils at St James’ Park:
