I'm The Best Behaved Coach in EPL: Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has credited Newcastle United for showing tremendous fight and determination following his side's 1-0 defeat at St. James' Park this afternoon.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have played decent football under Jose Mourinho this season, gracing the second spot in the Premier League table, behind their city rivals and league leaders Manchester City.

There was a warm handshake between Benitez and Mourinho when the final whistle sounded at a tumultuous St James' Park to confirm Newcastle's first home league win since October.

In the other game Sunday, Huddersfield collected its first league win in almost two months by beating Bournemouth 4-1 to climb out of the relegation zone.

United may have looked more likely to score in the early stages of the second half, but it was Newcastle who struck first through Matt Ritchie.

Newcastle United fans have taken to social media to praise the performance of goalkeeper Martin Dubravka as he made his kept a clean sheet on his debut for the club against Manchester United on Sunday.

Gayle beat Chris Smalling to a loose ball and was tripped by the defender just inside the box - but referee Craig Pawson wrongly chose not to award a penalty. Alexis had an open goal and then the countless opportunities of the last 20 to 25 minutes.

Ritchie's victor came from a clever flick by Dwight Gayle after Jonjo Shelvey's lofted free-kick had been headed down in the area.

"Newcastle's players gave the sacrifices all managers like to see".

Matt Ritchie fired Newcastle United up to 13th in the Premier League.

And from Shelvey's free-kick, Lejeune nodded into the centre of the box after pulling away from the sleeping Paul Pogba, with Gayle flicking into the path of Ritchie, who passed the ball in past De Gea.

One exception was Alexis Sanchez and he nearly put them ahead in the 57th minute when he rounded Dubravka before his goal-bound shot was blocked by Florian Lejeune.

"They got from us a defensive mistake, and from a lateral free-kick they scored".

Wave after wave of attacks from those in red threatened the Newcastle goal, with Martial denied by two last-ditch clearances in the 77th minute.

"When he's asked to do a job centrally, he's forever straying towards the touchline trying to get on the ball. I think it's a attractive way to win a football match".

Pogba, who looked to have struggled with an injury from the outset, was taken off along with Lingard as Mourinho threw on Michael Carrick and Juan Mata, and the latter's corner led to Martial seeing two efforts from 12 yards blocked on the line by the covering defence.
