Benitez praises debut hero Dubravka after upset win

Twitter trolls Manchester United as they lose to Newcastle

"Going into the next two weeks we'd have been in the relegation zone and we'd be a bit upset".

Benitez's side were indebted to goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who capped an excellent debut with a superb last-gasp save to deny Michael Carrick and ensure Newcastle claimed a first home win over Manchester United since the 2010-11 season.

While Manchester United had some good chances in the game near the end, they were below par for so long that it did not feel as though the team deserved to take anything from the game.

"It would have been a tough fortnight if we hadn't have won". "We have played against Arsenal and Man City and you can really see the quality and one mistake or a lack of concentration and a goal will go in." .

"We have had a lot of games where the team was well organised and defending well, and today it was just a question of passion and commitment from everyone".

"I've always wanted to stay here and the manager and the club have wanted to keep me, so I'm really pleased to have signed the new contract and hopefully there are many more years to come".

Slimani will be under pressure to emulate the impressive immediate impact made by fellow January arrivals Kenedy, the Chelsea loan midfielder and Slovakian worldwide keeper Martin Dubravka, who produced a man-of-the-match debut display against Jose Mourinho's side to help secure a first home win in the league since October.

Lejeune and Jamaal Lascelles were excellent at the heart of the back four, while Jonjo Shelvey turned in a much-improved performance in midfield.

Matt Ritchie scored the only goal of the game in the 65th minute to give Rafa Benitez's side victory over his old adversary Jose Mourinho.

"They are risky, but the teamwork we showed to fight for every ball was unbelievable", Benitez said.

"To me, growing up, Man United were the biggest team in the world and they probably still are", he said. The way that we were playing, with everybody giving everything, was absolutely fantastic.
