In the final match of today's English Premier League fixtures, Newcastle faced Manchester United in the 14th round.

Notably, the 'Red Devils' had to travel by bus for this match as their flight got canceled due to the weather.

The game turned out to be unfavorable for Erik ten Hag's side. Throughout the match, the Manchester United players only managed to have one shot on target and failed to secure even a draw.

Newcastle scored the only goal early in the second half of the game. Anthony Gordon capitalized on Trippier's pass and placed a precise shot into the bottom corner of the net. However, an interesting moment occurred at the very end of regular time. Nick Pope sustained an injury, and Martin Dubravka replaced him in Newcastle's goal. Dubravka immediately conceded a goal; however, the referees disallowed it due to an offside position by Maguire.

Newcastle 1 - 0 Manchester United

Goal: Gordon 56'

Thanks to this victory, 'The Magpies' moved ahead of Manchester United in the Premier League standings. In the next round, Manchester United will host Chelsea, while Newcastle will travel to face Everton.
