Shola Ameobi admits Newcastle United shocked Manchester United thanks to a physical aerial game.

United lost 3-0 on Tyneside last night.

Ameobi, who set up Demba Ba's opener, reckoned United's 3-2 defeat to Blackburn on Saturday boosted the Geordies' belief.

He said: "We saw what Blackburn did a few days ago and we thought that was something we could work on with our height.

"We had an aerial plan and it worked for us."
