Not for the first time this season, Manchester United struck late to send the away fans wild and seal all three points against Newcastle United.

Ashley Young‘s strike in the 90th minute was just reward for a good display where United were thwarted by Tim Krul, missed their own good chances and had a goal disallowed.

Whilst Chris Smalling was lucky to not give away an early penalty, Wayne Rooney threw away two good chances whilst Krul simultaneously denied Marouane Fellaini and Young with two superb saves.

United appeared to want the win more and the desire shown by Rooney forced Krul into a mistake, leaving Young to strike the hammer blow in the dying minutes.
