Allan Saint-Maximin Scores A Worldie For Newcastle Against Manchester United

Allan Saint-Maximin got Newcastle United off to the best-possible start against Manchester United after scoring a worldie in the seventh minute.

Raphael Varane's error saw him lose the ball to Sean Longstaff, who in turn teed up the Frenchman to cut inside the box and fire a superb finish past a motionless David de Gea.

It was the first Premier League goal that United have conceded under Ralf Rangnick, and the Red Devils appear to be falling back on old habits after making a sloppy start to the match at St James' Park.

Any win for Newcastle tonight would be a huge boost to their survival aspirations, as it would see them move up to 18th with only goal difference separating themselves and Watford outside the bottom three.

A defeat for the Red Devils would see them remain seventh and eight points adrift of Arsenal in fourth - albeit with two games in hand.

But there's still a long way to go in this one of course, and you wouldn't back against a Man United comeback with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes on the pitch.
