Jose Mourinho's incredible tribute to Newcastle after Manchester United win

Jose Mourinho's incredible tribute to Newcastle after Manchester United win

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has picked out two Newcastle players after their brilliant 1-0 victory against Man United at St James' Park on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Mourinho has all but admitted the title race is over with Manchester City dominating this season, and United realistically have to win every game to stand any chance of catching their rivals.

"Newcastle United's players and, of course, their staff gave what they have and what they don't have and I think that's a handsome thing in football", said Mourinho, who has never presided over a Premier League -victory in seven attempts at St James' Park and saw his side undone by Matt Ritchie's -second half victor.

Matt Ritchie's 65th-minute goal earned the hosts a 1-0 victory that lifted them clear of the league's bottom three.

Karius then tipped over a James Ward-Prowse header and the home side were made to pay for those missed opportunities as Salah played a lovely one-two with Firmino and stroked home his 22nd league goal of an outstanding season.

"It wasn't going to happen for us".

More cold, wintry precipitation could be expected this weekend
Lower-end snow ratios are often found in situations where temperatures are marginal for snow either aloft or near the surface. It should be partly sunny Monday into Tuesday , but rain could return Tuesday afternoon, the weather service said.

They gave their lives to keep a clean sheet.

United couldn't match the aggression of a Newcastle team fighting for survival and there were wild celebrations at full-time as the hosts moved out of the relegation zone.

The Scotland worldwide struck 65 minutes into a pulsating contest at St James' Park to end the Magpies' wait for a league win at home at the ninth time of asking.

When asked about the goal, Mourinho added: "We train, we work, we organise. and the players have their individual jobs when they defend zonal".

"We had some [chances] with the score at 0-0", said Mourinho. "It was an intuitive thing", he said. Striker Dwight Gayle got to the ball on the corner of the penalty area marginally before Chris Smalling and was sent crashing by the United defender, although not in the opinion of the official.

'Clearly I know we lost the duel in the air and it's hard to accept that'.
