'Ask Paul Souness' - Mourinho snipes at Liverpool legend over 'schoolboy' Pogba comments

Islam Slimani is looking to show his worth after joining Newcastle at the end of January

The win over Jose Mourinho's side was Newcastle's first at home in the league since a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in October and owed much to a string of saves from debutant goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, on loan from Sparta Prague.

Manchester United slipped to a surprise defeat to struggling Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday, as Matt Ritchie scored the only goal of the game after 66 minutes.

The statistics will tell you that Mourinho's side don't have too bad a record defensively - 19 conceded in 27 league games - but in truth they look a shambles all too often and are regularly bailed out by the brilliance of goalkeeper David de Gea.

For United, yet more poor defending has cost them points and they are now back to 16 points behind leaders Manchester City, and must look over their shoulders at the chasing pack. The gods of football were clearly on their side.

"But because we couldn't do that, I am really pleased to do it today".

"I'm more happy with the points than which team they came against", he said.

"There are so many awards - performance of the week, manager of the month and this and that - they should give one (to) the guy that behaves best on the touchline and it should be the fourth official to vote".

Paul Pogba was restored to the starting line-up after being dropped for the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town last week, but he was substituted shortly after Ritchie's goal following another anonymous display away from home.

Paul Pogba appeared to pick up an injury in the warm-up but played for 60 minutes - albeit very poorly - while Chris Smalling certainly didn't have his best game in a United shirt. "I tried that with the simplicity of Michael Carrick and to bring Alexis [Sanchez] to an area close to [Romelu] Lukaku, where he could be like a second striker".
