Magpies skipper Jamaal Lascelles - who had earlier produced an exceptional goal-line clearance to deny Tammy Abraham - headed the victor from Matt Ritchie's 76th-minute corner to end Newcastle's run of 12 matches without a Premier League away win.

"Between the four of us we were making a plan of communication and it worked perfectly".

Newcastle had the best chance before the break when striker Joselu's flicked header was superbly saved by Lukasz Fabianski.

The match was nothing like as enjoyable for Paul Clement. That wasn't good enough.

The former Liverpool manager recently had a hernia operation and is expected to miss the trip due to post-surgery infection, leaving his backroom staff to oversee proceedings. We got the overload in midfield but we never got control of the game.

The Welsh football legend thought Sanches had what it took to fit in with United's style, he said: "I remember looking at him and instantly liking him".

Deadline reported that Rian Johnson is the favorite to become the director of the next Star Wars movie. They were replaced by Hollywood veteran Ron Howard, the Oscar-winning director of "A Beautiful Mind".

"They're a good, well organised side but we should have done better, there's no question about that". We will be hard to beat back home but if we play like this every week, we will do well. Cisse's second goal then earned Newcastle an unlikely point. That means manager Clement will have to decide if he opt for the experience of Bony, or whether will stick with his younger in-form alternative in Abraham.

Lascelles who stopped Abraham from scoring would turn hero at the other end 14 minutes before full time with a header off a corner kick to put Rafa Benitez's men ahead.

It is Swansea v Newcastle in a couple of hours time.

Paul Clement's side will also going to be boosted by impressive deadline day business, when they managed to sign Renato Sanches on loan from Bayern Munich and Wilfred Bony from Manchester City.

He said: "Recovering from injury itself is sort of a mental battle - it's the first battle you have to face when coming back from a long injury, just having the strength to do the little things". "We've not played well and we've lost the game".

"We are very happy with the performance and so is Rafa".
