Manchester United played out a goalless draw with Newcastle United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United duo Bastian Schweinsteiger and Chris Smalling have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the side’s failure to win against Newcastle United at home on Saturday afternoon.

United lost their 100% record in the Premier League this season, as they were held to a goalless draw by the Magpies at Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal’s side were favourites to win the contest on Saturday, having got the better of Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at Old Trafford and Aston Villa by the same margin away from home at Villa Park in their opening two league games.

However, the Red Devils had to settle for a share of the spoils, as Newcastle gave a strong and valiant defensive performance.

Over the course of the 90 minutes, hosts United had 70% of the possession, took 20 shots of which eight were on target and earned 11 corners.

Following the draw, United midfielder Schweinsteiger and defender Smalling took to Twitter to have their say on the performance and the final result.
