Re­leg­a­tion threat­ened New­castle Uni­ted snatched a draw from the hungry jaws of de­feat ag­ainst fifth pla­ced Man­chester Uni­ted as Paul Dum­mett ma­naged to find the tar­get for the ho­me si­de in the fi­nal min­ute of the fix­ture af­ter the vis­it­ors had be­en ahead twice dur­ing the high-scor­ing encounter.

New­castle Uni­ted and Man­chester Uni­ted played out an en­ter­tain­ing and thrill­ing mat­ch at St Ja­mes´ Park on the 12th of Jan­uary 2016. The Old Traf­ford men were one goal up thanks to a su­perbly ex­ecuted pen­alty from Way­ne Roo­ney af­ter just two min­utes of play. Jesse Lin­gard then ad­ded a sec­ond goal for the gu­ests when the Eng­land U21 play­er roun­ded off a counter at­tack to score in the 38th min­ute of the clash, be­fore Neth­er­lands mid­fielder Geor­ginio Wijn­al­dum net­ted for The Mag­pies wi­th a well pla­ced ef­fort on 42 min­utes. Fol­low­ing the ha­lf-time break, a cool spot kick from Ser­bi­an in­ter­na­tion­al marks­man Alek­sandar Mitro­vic lev­elled the score for New­castle in the 67th min­ute of the con­test, on­ly for Roo­ney to make it 3-2 to Man­chester Uni­ted when he ham­mered the ball pa­st Re­pub­lic of Ire­land shot stop­per Rob El­li­ot and in­to the back of the net from out­side the eight­een-yard area twelve min­utes la­ter. But in the fi­nal min­ute of nor­mal time, Wales in­ter­na­tion­al Paul Dum­mett ex­ecuted a power­ful long dis­tance shot which flew pa­st Man­chester Uni­ted net­mind­er Da­vid de Gea and in­to the top left-hand cor­ner of the goal via the chest of Three Li­ons de­fender Chris Small­ing to res­cue a point for the North East club. The Geordies, who were fight­ing for their Pre­mier Lea­gue lives, had every reas­on to be sat­is­fied wi­th the res­ult, where­as Louis van Gaal´s Man­chester Uni­ted te­am missed the op­por­tun­ity to go level on points wi­th Maur­i­cio Pochettino´s Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur in fourth po­s­i­tion.
