Newcastle United claimed an impressive victory over Manchester United to get a crucial three points and greatly increase their chances of staying in the Premier League.

The Magpies started strongly and looked up for the fight from early on, with debutant goalkeeper Martin Dubravka the star of the show as he saved brilliantly from Anthony Martial before half-time.

On 65 minutes, Matt Ritchie scored his first goal of the season following some slack defending from the visitors, and they managed to hold on despite good chances for Martial, Alexis Sanchez and Michael Carrick, with Dubravka imperious.

The victory lifts the Magpies out of the relegation zone and into 13th, with Manchester United 16 points off Manchester City in second – the title race now all but over.
