Edinson Cavani puts Manchester United back in the game 1-1 vs Newcastle

Manchester United are back in the game against Newcastle United thanks to a decent finish from Edinson Cavani.

Man United fell behind seven minutes into the action after a poor defending from the away side handed Alan Saint-Maximin the chance to get the breakthrough.

United have been dire throughout the game but they have somehow pulled level at St James’ Park.

However, second-half substitute, Cavani, has put the Reds back in the game after his effort from a close range was good enough to get past the Magpies’ goalie.

The former PSG forward had replaced Mason Greenwood at the break, while Jadon Sancho came in for Fred at the same time.

Newcastle United 1-1 Manchester United with less than 20 minutes of action.
