Sir Alex Ferguson

New­castle Uni­ted 0 Man­chester Uni­ted 3, St Ja­mes´ Park, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Oct­ober 7, 2012. Man­chester Uni­ted mid­fielder Tom Clev­er­ley sco­red a stun­ning goal in the 3-0 away win over New­castle Uni­ted. Wi­th twenty min­utes left, Clev­er­ley curled the ball across ho­me goal­keeper Ste­ve Har­per and in­to the top cor­ner to seal the win over The Magpies.

Man­chester Uni­ted dom­in­ated pro­ceed­ings from the be­gin­ning and de­fenders Jon­ny Evans and Pat­rice Ev­ra pro­vided the Old Traf­ford si­de wi­th a com­fort­able 2-0 lead at the ha­lf-time in­ter­val. The New­castle sup­port­ers screamed for a goal early in the sec­ond ha­lf, but mat­ch of­fi­cial How­ard Webb and his as­sist­ant dis­agreed. Then in the 71st min­ute of the en­counter, a bril­liant long dis­tance goal from mid­field work­horse Tom Clev­er­ley ev­entually saw Sir Al­ex Ferguson´s Uni­ted emerge wi­th a con­vin­cing 3-0 tri­umph over New­castle at St Ja­mes´ Park. Sir Al­ex Fer­guson: “It was a great res­ult to come here and win 3-0 ag­ainst a very power­ful and ag­gress­ive New­castle te­am. You have to really per­form and make sure you keep con­trol of the ga­me and I think we did that for most of the time. We were ter­rif­ic in the sec­ond pe­riod ag­ainst Spurs; it was an ab­so­lutely bril­liant per­form­ance, but the fir­st pe­riod spoiled the who­le day. Where­as today we were really on top of our ga­me in terms of con­cen­tra­tion, de­term­in­a­tion and all of the things you want to see in a si­de that´s go­ing to win.” New­castle Uni­ted Te­am: Ste­ve Har­per, Dav­ide San­ton, Mi­ke Wil­li­am­son, Shane Fer­guson, Jo­nas Gu­ti­er­rez, Ja­mes Perch, Cheik Ti­ote, Hatem Ben Arfa, Yo­han Cabaye, Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse.
