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

Pogba has suffered from the fact that Jesse Lingard is prospering in this Manchester United team.

The 1-0 victory for the hosts means Jose Mourinho is yet to win at Newcastle in his managerial career, recording three draws and four losses.

The Portuguese, who has never collected three points at St James' Park, saw Matt Ritchie fire old foe Rafael Benitez's men to an unlikely victory and, while suggesting they had ridden their luck, he was complimentary about the huge effort they put in.

Ritchie rifled a shot past David De Gea in the 65th minute to punish a profligate United side who wasted several good chances with Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez culpable.

He continued: 'We could be here for 10 hours and we wouldn't score a goal - that's the feeling.

Liverpool were too slick for a feeble Southampton as they condemned the south coast side to a place in the bottom three.

"I loved the way Newcastle fought for 90 minutes and I loved the way my players fought for the last 25 minutes to change the result". They must have an awesome feeling after giving absolutely everything.

Ritchie's victor came from a clever flick by Dwight Gayle after Jonjo Shelvey's lofted free kick had been headed down in the area.

Ritchie's goal came from a free-kick awarded for a needless dive by United defender Chris Smalling inside his own half.

"A defender has to concede free-kicks now and again".

"Players who do it in the box deserve a card more than Smalling in that situation". He was composed and that gave confidence to the team.

"United need a better mix there to keep the ball better, make them better to watch and more threatening, with better quality into their strikers".

"All the players worked hard, so it is not fair to say just the goalkeeper played well".

Yet they responded with a gritty display, riding their luck at times to take the points courtesy of Matt Ritchie's 65th-minute victor which propelled them from 18th to 13th.
