Erik ten Hag&aposs side were outclassed for most of the encounter at St. James&apos Park, with Anthony Gordon&aposs second-half strike proving decisive as the Red Devils sunk to a sixth Premier League defeat of the season. United next face Chelsea at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.
And it was Livramento&aposs superb attacking output that warranted the most joy for Eddie Howe&aposs side throughout the game, with his tireless overlapping runs causing constant problems for both Aaron-Wan Bissaka and Marcus Rashford down the right-hand side of the pitch.
Speaking to Newcastle United&aposs official club channels after the game, the former Southampton defender amplified how pressing Ten Hag&aposs side from minute one was key to their plans on the evening.
&apos&aposIt was massive, we had a lot of opportunities in the first half and we just kept going, luckily – well I say luckily – it was a great team goal to be fair to him (Anthony Gordon) and he took it well,&apos&apos he began.
