Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has hammered the Red Devils players after Newcastle United’s second goal in their 3-0 win at Old Trafford. The former England right-back was left disgusted by the lack of effort from five Manchester United players who were appealing for a free-kick as Newcastle broke up the other end and scored through Lewis Hall.
It was an evening to remember for Eddie Howe and his side as they exacted revenge on the hosts for last year’s cup final defeat. In truth, the Magpies blew the hosts away with one of their most complete away performances so far this season.
It was just the second time Newcastle have won at the home of Manchester United in 50 years and they dumped the current Carabao Cup holders out of the competition to set up a quarter-final clash with Chelsea. A brilliant solo run from Tino Livramento teed up Miguel Almiron for the opener before Hall added a second before the break.
Joe Willock put the final nail in the Red Devils’ coffin on the hour mark to pile further pressure on Erik Ten hag and his struggling side. The Magpies had made a number of changes heading into the game, with Manchester United arguably boasting the strong side on paper.
However that didn’t matter with the Toon putting any doubts to bed over their squad depth with an emphatic display. It was a memorable night for both Livramento and Hall, both of whom impressed again with the latter getting his first goal in a black and white shirt – a goal that left Neville reeling.
“Look at those five United players,” Neville said on Sky Sports’ commentary. “They are around the referee whinging.
“While they are whinging, Newcastle are winning. The fact that there were five players around the referee moaning while Newcastle were playing is schoolboy stuff – U9’s.”
