Manchester United drew 0-0 at home to Newcastle United in a disappointing performance from the Reds.
It was a sloppy start to the game, though, with United making mistakes at the back, but luckily, Newcastle didn’t punish them.
Sancho had a chance but not dissimilar to Fred‘s; it was off-target for the hosts.
It wasn’t all United. However, Newcastle tried to create their chance as Guimarães close-range shot could cause no damage because De Gea was there to save it.
It was an end-to-end affair, but neither side could break the deadlock. Trippier had a powerful shot for Newcastle around the half-hour mark, but the Reds’ defence blocked it.
Fred missed an empty net in the 88th minute after Rashford had rounded Newcastle goalkeeper Nick Pope to set up the Brazil midfielder, but he miscued his effort past the post following pressure from Fabian Schar.
Rashford, who had replaced Cristiano Ronaldo after Portugal forward saw two second-half goals disallowed, then headed wide from Casemiro’s cross in the 95th minute.
The visitors came closest to scoring in the first half when Joelinton hit the woodwork twice as he headed against the crossbar and then headed his rebound against the post.
The goalless draw leaves United fifth, three points off fourth-placed Chelsea, while Newcastle remain a point further back in sixth to extend their unbeaten run to five games.
