Mourinho's St James' Park curse continues as Man Utd humbled by Newcastle

Jose Mourinho is this weekend finally hoping to get that winning feeling at St James Park

Mourinho, who has never won a Premier League game as a manager at St James's Park, said: "They fought like animals".

Manchester United remain in second place in the Premier League table as they chase a spot in the Champions League for next season.

However, debutant goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was brilliant in goal for the home side, including making a stoppage time save to keep a clean sheet and earn the three points for his side.

Jose Mourinho is still waiting to win a Premier League game at Newcastle after Matt Ritchie's goal sentenced Manchester United to a shock 1-0 defeat on Sunday.

Phil Jones, Smalling's central-defensive partner, said the players were "devastated" by the defeat, which leaves them just two points ahead of third-placed Liverpool, who beat Southampton 2-0.

'The gods of football were on their side.

The Scotland global struck 65 minutes into a pulsating contest at St James' Park to end the Magpies' wait for a league win at home at the ninth time of asking.

Manchester United fans have been expressing their frustration with Smalling for his role in the defeat to Newcastle, but Mourinho has come to the defence of the England worldwide.

"It was not just up to them, it was also the gods of football, but I repeat it's a attractive thing to win a match the way they did".

And the importance of that intervention became clear when, after 65 minutes, Newcastle took the lead as Ritchie was left unmarked to sweep home a left-footed shot after the ball had been headed across by Lejeune and touched on by Gayle.

"We train we work, we organise, the players have their individual jobs when they defend zonal".

"We had some (chances) with the score at 0-0".

The free kick was awarded when Manchester United defender Chris Smalling dived theatrically when challenging for a midfield ball and was shown a yellow card.

The Manchester United manager's touchline histrionics have been well documented over the years, leading the Portuguese to regularly clash with football's authorities. 'It was an intuitive thing.

"The double miss of Martial is incredible". "Alexis [Sanchez] had an open goal and then the countless opportunities of the last 20-25 minutes".
