Cavani’s goal helps the Red Devils escape the defeat against Newcastle United.


Red Devils

managed to secure a 1-1 draw against

Newcastle United

in a situation that

Ralf Rangnick

was about to experience his first defeat as their manager until their second-half goal, which was scored by their Uruguayan striker

Edinson Cavani

who found the net against relegation-threatened Newcastle United to give his side one away point.

The Red Devils didn’t show a good performance in the first half, in fact, they were so bad that Sky pundit Gary Neville called them a bunch of whinge bags at halftime after seeing his former club fail to answer the opposition’s seventh-minute goal in the first half.



goal in the first half seemed to put the visitors in an awkward situation as they were going through a big test after beginning the Rangnick era with 1-0 wins over Crystal Palace and Norwich City, and they seemed unorganized at some points, and they could even lose Cristiano Ronaldo as he was so close to getting sent-off, but David De Gea’s performance in a game that Newcastle had eight shots on target saved the Red Devils.

Finally, in the 71st minute of the game, Edinson Cavani, who had replaced Mason Greenwood at the beginning of the second half, found the net for Rangnick’s side.
