Goal Javier Hernández
YES THEY CAN!!! Hernandez surely nets the winner in what could prove to be a vital day in the destination of the title. Carrick delivered a delightful ball over the Newcastle defence, and the striker volleyed home past the onrushing Krul to send the home fans into delight. Simply sensational!
Goal Robin van Persie
VAN PERSIE MAKES IT 3-3!!! Wow. The Dutch striker nets his 13th league goal of the season by finding the bottom corner of Krul's net after the keeper brilliantly denied him moments before. Two sublime finishes in as many minutes - this is a festive feast of football.
Goal Papiss Cissé
CISSE SCORES!!! Great goal for the Newcastle striker as he lashes home expertly from 12 yards following a fine run and pass from Gabriel Obertan, who left Old Trafford for St James' Park not long ago. It's 3-2, and we're set for an enthralling last 20 minutes.
Yellow Card Papiss Cissé
Yellow Card Danny Simpson
Goal Patrice Evra
EVRA EQUALISES!!! It's 2-2, and the Manchester United left-back cannot stop scoring - and this could well be his best goal for United yet. Newcastle only partially clear from a corner, and the captain drives at goal from 25 yards out before unleashing a low drive into Krul's bottom-left corner. Krul should have kept it out, but United are delighted.
Yellow Card Antonio Valencia
Yellow Card Mike Williamson
Yellow Card Javier Hernández
Yellow Card Jonny Evans
Own Goal Jonny Evans
NEWCASTLE ARE BACK IN FRONT!!! Evans has scored an own goal mere moments after getting his side level. It is disallowed for offside, with Papiss Cisse straying next to the defender. But Mike Dean isn’t sure, and after consulting with the linesman, who ought to have had the decision sussed in the first place, gives the goal. Farcical scenes at Old Trafford.
Goal Jonny Evans
Goal James Perch
GOAL FOR NEWCASTLE!!! They're 1-0 up as James Perch nets from close range but it's a disaster for David de Gea. Ba picks up the ball after poor control from Carrick, and the keeper can only parry his long-range effort straight into the path of the midfielder who slams into the net from six yards. Really poor from the Spanish keeper there, and the visitors take a shock lead.
