  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic close to making a return from injury says Jose Mourinho

Matt Ritchie scored a second-half victor for Newcastle as they lifted themselves out of the relegation places with a 1-0 victory over Manchester United at St James' Park.

There was a warm handshake between Benitez and Mourinho when the final whistle sounded at a tumultuous St James' Park to confirm Newcastle's first home league win since October.

More importantly for the Portuguese coach, second-placed United wasted a chance to pull clear of its rivals for Champions League qualification, with Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea still in range.

Mourinho's side, who had 13 shots - six on target, now trail league leaders Manchester City by 16 points.

United may have looked more likely to score in the early stages of the second half, but it was Newcastle who struck first through Matt Ritchie.

'Voice of the oppressed:' Asma Jahangir, rights activist, dies at 66
A champion of human rights , Jehangir was unafraid to speak loudly against those attacking minority religions and women. Asma Jahangir was a very prominent Pakistani social activist espousing the cause of peace between India and Pakistan .

The 22-year-old winger has played on the left of the attack in his first 2 Newcastle games, but Benitez reckons he could help provide Paul Dummett tough competition for the left-back berth. Sometimes we deserve more, but you have to take your chances.

65' - GOAL! Newcastle 1-0 Man United (Ritchie) Shelvey's free-kick is headed into the path of Ritchie who has time and space to pick his spot and slides the ball into the bottom corner, leaving De Gea helpless.

The centre-back was lucky not to be penalised five minutes before the end of the period when he brought down Dwight Gayle with a clumsy challenge on the edge of the box.

Martial then had a more hard chance to score in the air after some more good work by Lukaku down the left channel.

Manchester United are without long-term absentees - Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marouane Fellani, however, the Red Devils are expected to return to full-strength side after resting multiple players in the comfortable win against Huddersfield Town.

Leicester Boss Claude Puel Confirms AWOL Riyad Mahrez Will Not Play vs
Harry Maguire, the Leicester defender, said: "The boys will welcome Riyad back and he's no doubt one of our best players". Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Thursday, Puel said: "I think Riyad is not available for Saturday's game".

Since then, they have drawn with Swansea City, Burnley and Crystal Palace, in addition to suffering a 3-1 defeat at Manchester City.

"With so many opinions, we are in a world of opinions, people get confused but no confusion between me and Paul - he is a midfield player and that's it".

Ayoze Perez shot wide from range moments later, and the visitors were then grateful to Chris Smalling for some cool defending when DeAndre Yedlin got in a unsafe cross. They continued to ramp up the pressure in the closing minutes, and Dubravka saved brilliantly from Carrick in stoppage time to secure the win. It was an intuitive thing.

And that run extended to seven matches after Matt Ritchie stunned the visitors with a 65th-minute victor.

"The double miss of (Anthony) Martial is incredible in the last minute". Ultimately we have conceded a sloppy goal.
