As soon as the match began in the north of England, a new example of the bad moment that the Manchester United was in evidence. Newcastle came out against with a great offensive combination.

Luck continued to show that he is not on the side of the ‘Red Devils’. After 20 minutes of play, an excellent play in attack ended in a goal from Bruno Fernandes. However, the VAR confirmed that Juan Mata, who gave him back a wall, was offside and the goal was canceled. Moments later, from a corner kick, Harry Maguire put the equality, this time, upside down.
