Advantage City as United defeated
05 January 2012, 08:22
England - Newcastle sent Manchester United spinning to their second consecutive Premier League defeat on Wednesday to give Manchester City a vital edge in the title race.
Goals from Demba Ba, Yohan Cabaye and a late Phil Jones own goal clinched a deserved 3-0 victory for Newcastle at St James Park, as United missed the chance to go level on points with City at the top of the table.
The defeat means United, beaten by Blackburn at Old Trafford in their last outing at the weekend, now trail City by three points after the league leaders downed Liverpool 3-0 at Eastlands on Tuesday.
