- Howe’s team go third in table after comfortable 2-0 win
- Ten Hag: ‘They had more determination, I was surprised’
Erik ten Hag said he “totally agreed” with Luke Shaw’s withering assessment of Manchester United’s performance as they lost to their top-four rivals Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday.
The Dutchman’s left-back pulled no punches as he analysed a defeat which enabled Eddie Howe’s side to leapfrog Manchester United, rising to third in the Premier League. “I do think Newcastle are a very good side but I don’t think they won the game on quality today,” Shaw said.
