Newcastle rock Man Utd as Huddersfield win at last

Jose Mourinho Rafa Benitez

Jose Mourinho Rafa Benitez

Rafa Benitez's side have not won in the league since New Year's Day, and will be desperate for points as they try to maintain their top flight status. "I don't know if it's a free-kick".

Perez has primarily played behind the striker this season, handed the architect role in which he has made the most out of - a generally restrained playing style around him.

"In this country, the intensity and the aggression are a great things and the referees are there to sort the good aggression from the really risky situations".

"A little bit like the first goal against Tottenham, I could complain that the goal is illegal that [Harry] Kane was already 10 metres inside our half, but I think it's more logical to complain about our mistake in the long ball". He works well, he's a good professional, he likes to train. The players have their individual jobs in defence or not.

"A lateral free-kick is not even a lateral free-kick from a unsafe position". We miss the challenge in the air. "It was an intuitive thing", he said. Players [who do it] in the box deserve a card more than (Chris) Smalling in that situation. There's no problem with Pogba.

Jose Mourinho watched that match from the stands and must have come away from Old Trafford feeling that Chong has a serious chance of forcing his way into the first team on the basis of this performance. "He makes everything simple".

The Reds endured a frustrating afternoon at St James' Park and were beaten 1-0 after a second-half victor from Matt Ritchie.


Newcastle appeared to be fighting a rearguard action when they took the lead to lift the roof off St James' Park. "Newcastle fought like animals".

"It wasn't going to happen for us but also they gave what they have and what they don't have, that's a lovely thing in football". The gods of football were clearly on their side. He praised the spirit and unity of his side. Now sat just a single point off the drop zone, Newcastle will need to improve on their current run of form if they intend to extend on their stay in the Premier League.

"I was unlucky because they scored a goal in the seconds before that and then I'm going to face a different Newcastle". It wasn't going to happen for us today.

"I am not thinking about that (beating Mourinho)". Hopefully it will be the same against Bournemouth.

Pogba has played in a Champions League final for Juventus and the Euro 2016 final for France.

"He's been free of minor injuries for a few months which sometimes stops the evolution, and I'm really happy".
