Cavani spares United a big setback

Thanks to a goal from Cavani, Manchester United obtained the draw on Newcastle’s lawn on Monday at the end of the 19th day of the Premier League (1-1). Saint-Maximin opened the scoring.

That this trip was hard for Manchester United, obviously not recovered from the Christmas feasts. This Monday at the end of the 19e lifting of the Premier League, the Red Devils were particularly battered by the Magpies, totally jostled by the twirling Saint-Maximin especially. From the 7e minute, it was the former Niçois who also opened hostilities, with an illegible strike for De Gea. An ascendant held logically until the break.

Upon returning from the locker room, without any solution despite the presence on the field of a Ronaldo ultra motivated but weaned from good balls, the entry of Cavani – accompanied by that of Sancho – had the merit of revitalizing the Mancunian outposts somewhat. With the key, finally, an opportunity materialized by the Uruguayan joker, scorer in two stages, not without success, against the opposing goal (1-1, 71e).

De Gea’s baraka

Despite Saint-Maximin’s injury-related exit (83e), the end of the match was indeed to the advantage of Newcastle, with this post sounded by Murphy and this exceptional parade by De Gea in the wake, on a shot from Almiron (88e). Uncompensated, the Magpies miss out on a second league victory this season and remain 19e two lengths from the waterline. United for its part slipped to seventh, in the wake of Tottenham and West Ham.
