Edinson Cavani salvaged a point for Manchester United at Newcastle after a poor display at St James’ Park.

Allan Saint-Maximin gave the home side the lead after seven minutes cutting in from the left flank before, on the stretch, hitting an unstoppable effort from the edge of the area.

The Frenchman, who along with Callum Wilson left the field injured before the end of the game, should have made it two just after the break but he got an awful contact from six yards out when it appeared a simple task to turn home Emil Krafth’s pull-back .

The Red Devils were level when half-time substitute Cavani turned home Diogo Dalot’s low cross at the second attempt.

Three minutes from time, the Magpies were inches from taking a decisive lead when Jacob Murphy’s shot came back off a post and then Miguel Almiron’s superb curler from the edge of the box was tipped over by David De Gea.
