Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists Newcastle United cannot have any complaints over their disallowed goal during yesterday's win.

Newcastle came desperately close to dragging themselves back into it five minutes after the restart when Demba Ba headed Shane Ferguson's cross on to the bar and Papiss Cisse stooped to head the rebound towards goal.

However, keeper David de Gea clawed it on to the post and survived claims that the ball had crossed the line.

Ferguson said: "The goalkeeper has done fantastically, actually, to get to it, but if the rule is the whole ball has got to be over the line, then it's not a goal.

"But I would be disappointed because I thought enough of the ball is over."
