It was a sweet ending for the Magpies who managed to settle for a draw against the mighty Manchester United and steal two important points from them. The Toon played decently in the first half but bossed in the latter half of the 90 minute game. As for the Red Devils, they have their own ups and downs throughout the match. Rooney seemed in top form as he scored a brace. Fellaini and Lingard missed two massive sitters and Smalling caused problems for United. The game ended in a 3-3 result with both teams having goal scoring problems heading into the game.

Here’s how we rated the players for their performance.

Newcastle United

Elliot 7- Couldn’t do enough to maintain a clean sheet, saved one important strike of Rooney

Janmaat 6- Poor attacking, not the finest night for the full-back who will have better games

Mbemba 7- Gave away a silly penalty, improved later on

Coloccini 8– Imposing at the back and superb on the ball, helped create Wijnaldum’s goal

Dummett 7- Newcastle’s late hero was so nearly a villain as it was his poor clearance which led to Rooney firing Manchester United into 3-2 lead

Tiote 7- Energetic in the midfield, got booked though

Colback 6– Triedto win penalty out of the Man Utd midfielder reflected desperation at times, tussled Fellaini

Sissoko 7- Unlucky not to equalise early in second half with fine strike beaten away by De Gea

Wijnaldum 7.5- His volley restored hope for the Magpies

Perez 5- Showed neat touches but wasn’t as active as expected

Mitrovic 7- Won a penalty, scored from it and also bossed over Fellaini

Manchester United

De Gea 8- De Gea was faultless for all three goals that flew past him. In fact Man Utd would have conceded more if it wasn’t for his saves

Young 6- Failed to trouble the Newcastle defence with any of his crosses

Smalling 4- Allowed Wijnaldum to score Newcastle’s first goal, conceded the penalty and then deflected Dummett’s strike into own goal

Blind 6- Blind was hardly the imposing centre-half helping to mop up the danger

Darmian 6- Out of position at left-back, made some tackles

Fellaini 5- Made fouls,missed one massive sitter, disgusting game for him

Schneiderlin 6- Hardly contributed, went unnoticed

Lingard 7- Scored one, missed one

Herrera 6- Deserved an assist for a cheeky blind sided back heel which Lingard ended up blazing off target, decent performance

Martial 7- Couldn’t do much while being played on the right

Rooney 9- Scored a brace, second goal was a stunner
