Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men need to keep winning games if they want to ensure their qualification for the Champions League next campaign.

Unfortunately for Solskjaer and co, they’ve been pegged back by Newcastle.

After a ball played in towards the back-post, Harry Maguire’s header landed at the feet of Allan Saint-Maximin, who hit the ball into the ground, with it skipping up off the surface and beating David De Gea.

It’s a great goal from Saint-Maximin and it’s one that leaves Man United with work to do if they want to keep the pressure on their city rivals and solidify their spot in the top four of the Premier League.
