The ball found its way to Daniel James in acres of space before he hit the back of the net.
Newcastle equalised shortly after Manchester United’s opener through Marcus Rashford.
We haven’t performed well and, on top of that, our tempo has been way too slow. Newcastle are a side United should be beating comfortably but we’ve been too lackluster in our approach since kick-off.
Bruno Fernandes will be credited for assisting James’ goal after getting a touch on the low cross. It is the Welshman’s second goal this week after scoring the fourth against Real Sociedad in United’s 4-0 win on Thursday night.
I’m sure they will joke about whether it would have slipped through to James had Fernandes not touched the ball.
