Steve McClaren’s side gave a strong defensive performance against the Red Devils to play out a goalless draw at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
The Magpies headed into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Swansea City away from home at the Liberty Stadium.
Hosts United were favourites to win the contest, but Newcastle held strong to pick up a point.
Over the course of the 90 minutes, the visitors had just 30% of the possession, took seven shots but none of them was on target, and earned five corners.
Following the match, goalkeeper Krul, winger Aarons and forward Perez took to Twitter to express their delight at picking up a point at Old Trafford.
