It’s all square at the break. Luke Shaw deflected an EMil Krafth cross into his own net to give Newcastle the lead after two minutes, but it’s been one-way traffic in the other direction ever since. Bruno Fernandes had a goal chalked off for offside shortly before Harry Maguire equalised for United with an excellent near post header from a corner. The scores may be level, but Manchester United are in the box-seat at St James’ Park.
45+1 min: We’ve had two goals, one of them a freak and a third disallowed, but otherwise this match has been extremely low on entertainment. I suspect any Sky Sports customers who have paid £14.95 on top of their usual monthly subscription to watch this will be feeling fairly short-changed as we approach half-time.
