Newcastle United increased their concerns at home to Manchester United, winning 1-0 on Sunday evening, at the end of the eighth round of the Premier League.
Matthew Longstaff, brother of midfielder Sean Longstaff, scored the only goal in the 72nd minute.
This is the third loss for Manchester United in the competition, freezing his score at 9 points in the 12th place, while Newcastle are 16th with 8 points.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was based on a 4-2-3-1 play. Axel Tuanzebi played deep in the back line alongside Harry Maguire, backed by backs Diogo Dalot and Ashley Young.
Scott McTominay and Fred exchanged roles in the midfield, giving the trio Daniel James, Juan Mata and Andreas Pereira to support outright striker Marcus Rashford.
Newcastle United coach Steve Bruce used a 5-4-1 defensive style, with the back of the line being pentagonist De Andrey Yidlin, Jamal Lasiles, Fabian Schar, Kieran Clark and Gaitro Felice.
Miguel Almiron and Alain Sainte-Maximin stood on the wings, while Matthew Longstaff and Sean Longstaff swapped in midfield, behind Brazilian striker Guillenton.
Newcastle threatened the visitors’ goal in the first minute when Longstaff grabbed the ball from Maktominai before passing it to Saint Maximin, who in turn sent it to Almiron, but the latter’s attempt from 5 yards bounced back from the defense.
Despite United’s reinforcements, Newcastle were able to open the scoring in the 72nd minute, with a counter-attack through which the ball reached Willemus on the left, and the latter passed out of the penalty area to Matthew Longstaff, who scored a creeping ground to the right of goalkeeper De Gea.
