Fans react as Man United falls at the St James'

Newcastle 1-0 Man United: Fans react as Mourinho’s St James’ hoodoo continues

February 11, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Manchester United suffered an agonizing 1:0 defeat to Newcastle at the St James Park.

The Red Devils were a shadow of themselves at the St James' Park and saw their lethargic performance punished by the Magpies. Matt Ritchie's 65th-minute strike secured Rafa Benitez's side's first victory since October 2017. Many frantic fans of Manchester United have since taken their frustrations to Twitter, with some attributing the disappointing result to Jose Mourinho’s tactics.

The Portuguese manager set out his team in his contemporary 4-2-3-1 formation which featured key players such as Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and new-boy, Alexis Sanchez. The side, however, lacked the services of Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera who were absented from the traveling squad.

The defeat means Jose Mourinho is still yet to record a single win at the St James’ Park, taking his winless run to seven. His team, however, still sits in second place with 56 points - 16 points adrift table-toppers Manchester City.

Here are a few tweets by some Manchester United fans after their side’s unsatisfactory performance:
