Jamaal Lascelles slates 'missing' Manchester United defence during Newcastle defeat

"I have always wanted to stay here and the manager and the club have wanted to keep me so I am really pleased", Dummett told the club's website.

The bottom half of the Premier League table is still extremely tight, with just six points separating the teams in tenth and 19th position, but having proved their mettle against a Manchester United side who remain in second, Benitez is hoping his players use yesterday's success to drive them on in their final 11 matches.

"We did well, although still we were a little bit lucky at the end". "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." .

The 26-year-old academy product has played 131 games for the club since his debut in 2013, scoring three goals.

Supporters perhaps shouldn't expect too much too soon, as by the time Newcastle travel to the South Coast to face Eddie Howe's side, it will be more than five weeks' since the forward's last appearance, and nearly two months since he featured in the Premier League, when scoring in the 3-0 New Year's Day victory over Huddersfield.

Martin Dubravka made a number of fine saves in his first start for the Magpies.

"We keep going. Still, nothing is done, but it's three more points which, at this moment, make a great difference".

Jose Mourinho has now failed to win any of his seven league games at St James' Park, and the Manchester United manager was full of respect for Newcastle's efforts.

"He can buy the lottery and win today". "I feel we got that against Man United and you do need that against the big teams".

Lascelles claims that the victory didn't come as a surprise as he believes Newcastle have played well in most games this season.

Manchester United had looked as if they would be Manchester City's closest challengers for the title but their disappointing slump in form in recent days has left them 16 points behind the leaders.
