Newcastle 1 Man Utd 0: Matty Longstaff smashes winner on Prem debut to step up Solskjaer’s crisis – The Sun

THEY are level on points with Sheffield United and Brighton.

Eight games in to the Premier League season and Manchester United are also-rans.

Newcastle winner, scored after 71 minutes, goes down in Geordie folklore.

Matty Longstaff, scoring the winner on his Premier League debut for Newcastle, made the difference.

His goal piles the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, condemning this abysmal Manchester United side to defeat.

They had one proper shot – an Andreas Pereira effort after 41 minutes – in an entire game of football.

United will have to stew on this mid-table position for the best part of a fortnight.

Liverpool are the next opponents, the first game back for United after the international break.

Solskjaer cannot afford to lose that one.

He is under the cosh now because United have too much history to tolerate performances as lamentable as this.

Newcastle were hungry, reacting well to the inquest that followed their 5-0 stuffing at Leicester.

What a day it turned out to be for Longstaff.

He was drafted in by Steve Bruce, give his head against alongside brother Sean against the most famous name in English football.

The kid did well, scoring the winner for Newcastle after 72 minutes.

Allan Saint-Maximin did the hard work down the left, doing well to ignore the claims of sub Andy Carroll screaming for the ball on the other wing.

Jetro Willems was waiting inside the area, holding off the challenges and waiting for an option outside the area.

It turned out to be Matt Longstaff, with the Toon midfielder driving an effort low beyond David de Gea’s right glove.

The place erupted, on their feet to salute a new Newcastle hero.
