New­castle Uni­ted 3 Man­chester Uni­ted 3, St Ja­mes´ Park, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Jan­uary 12, 2016. Man­chester Uni­ted, who had lost their three last away ga­mes in the Pre­miership, shared the spoils wi­th New­castle Uni­ted in a high-scor­ing draw at St Ja­mes´ Park. The Reds were lead­ing 2-1 at the break, but Louis van Gaal´s si­de had to settle for a 3-3 draw in the end.

Man­chester Uni­ted es­tab­lished an early lead thanks to a con­ver­ted pen­alty from Way­ne Roo­ney in the ninth min­ute off the mat­ch, whi­le at­tack­ing mid­fielder Jesse Lindgard ad­ded a sec­ond goal for the vis­it­ors af­ter 38th min­utes. Geor­ginio Wijn­al­dum re­duced the de­fi­cit for New­castle three min­utes ahead of the in­ter­val, be­fore Alek­sandar Mitro­vic lev­elled the score for The Mag­pies from the spot in the 67th min­ute of ac­tion. Man­chester Uni­ted re­gained their ad­vant­age as Roo­ney com­pleted his brace on 79 min­utes, on­ly for New­castle to equal­ise for a sec­ond time thro­ugh a goal from loc­al born de­fender Paul Dum­mett in the fi­nal min­ute. In the af­ter­math at St James´s Park, Louis van Gaals blamed his play­ers for throw­ing away three points. Louis van Gaal: “We could have sco­red six goals eas­ily here and we did not. It is not so in­ter­est­ing to cre­ate chances. In every press con­fer­ence I say that you have to score one more goal than the op­pon­ent.” New­castle Uni­ted Te­am: Rob El­li­ot, Paul Dum­mett, Daryl Jan­maat, Chancel Mbe­mba, Jack Col­back, Fab­ri­cio Co­loccini, Cheik Ti­ote, Moussa Sis­soko, Geor­ginio Wijn­al­dum, Ayoze Pe­rez, Alek­sandar Mitro­vic.
