Newcastle midfielder Anita no stranger to Man Utd shocks

Newcastle United midfielder Vurnon Anita is no stranger to victories at Manchester United.

Anita had tasted victory at Old Trafford with Ajax in the Europa League.

He said after Saturday's shock win: "We knew that it had been 41 years since we last won here.

"We were told it a few days ago by the manager. It's a historical win and we did it with good, beautiful football.

"We pressed the ball and kept it well when we won it back. We needed a win, of course.

"We lost on Wednesday at Swansea so felt we had something to straighten out, and we did it well."
