Newcastle Utd - Striped Fans

Newcastle United drew 3-3 with Manchester United last night.

Peter Lovenkrands has praised Newcastle United’s performance in their 3-3 draw against Manchester United yesterday.

The Danish striker was impressed by his former club’s desire in the fixture, and he urged them to build on their performance on social media site Twitter last night.

Newcastle’s match against Manchester United was exciting from start to finish.

The Red Devils looked to be heading to a comfortable win when Wayne Rooney and Jesse Lingard netted in the first half, but Newcastle showed great fight to come back.

The Magpies first scored through Georginio Wijnaldum, before Aleksandar Mitrovic netted from the spot.

With the atmosphere at St. James’ Park now electric, Newcastle were pushing forward at every opportunity, but it was United who regained the lead when Rooney scored for the second time.

That goal was a hammer blow for Steve McClaren’s side, but they recovered - and smashed in an equaliser in the last minute through Paul Dummett.

Newcastle’s draw has pushed them to within one point of safety, and the quality of their performance has raised optimism around St. James’ Park.
