Dwight Gayle: 'Victory over Manchester United has lifted Newcastle United'

Dwight Gayle: 'Victory over Manchester United has lifted Newcastle United'

"My message to our fans, and I think they know it really well, is that this is a team that cares".

To back up the idea that Rafa Benitez will never be totally happy, Mark Lawrenson tells an anecdote about Steven Gerrard.

"The truth is, after losing an away game", he said.

Lascelles claims that the victory didn't come as a surprise as he believes Newcastle have played well in most games this season.

However, after joining with a thigh injury and missing the first two games of his Newcastle career, in addition to being ineligible for the clash against his parent side later in the campaign, Slimani will now have the chance to appear in just 10 matches for his loan side, working out at a fee of £200,000-per-game if he turns out in all of them.

We have already seen this with the likes of Mitrovic, Shelvey, Colback and Mbemba.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said that Newcastle's players fought like "animals" to preserve their lead.

Man Utd were denied an equaliser by two goal-saving blocks by Gayle and a stoppage-time save by Dubravka.

Should he keep on with such fine performances, Newcastle will definitely retain their Premier League status at the end of the season as he has proven he's capable of winning them points. He didn't show him all the wonder goals and all the times he had pulled them up by the boot laces and won games, it was know your mistakes.

A second-half strike from Matt Ritchie did the damage, lifting the Tynesiders to 13th place, having been in the drop zone before kick-off.

How do you feel Newcastle are shaped now after the window has closed?

But maybe the prospect of being Newcastle's first-choice will see Slimani rediscover the form that once made him the most feared striker in Portuguese football. But it was a really great game against a very good team, a top side, who everybody knows how good they are. "But I think the team deserved the three points". With the bigger teams, teams like us will always want it a lot more and their quality wasn't enough to beat us.
