Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho described his side's 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday as "beautiful".

Manchester United slip up againManchester United are second in the Premier League.

However, debutant goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was brilliant in goal for the home side, including making a stoppage time save to keep a clean sheet and earn the three points for his side.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes he is the best behaved coach in the English Premier League (EPL) and he is committed to win the award for the same at the end of the season.

Newcastle also thought they should have had a penalty five minutes before half-time.

Karius then tipped over a James Ward-Prowse header and the home side were made to pay for those missed opportunities as Salah played a lovely one-two with Firmino and stroked home his 22nd league goal of an outstanding season.

"But because we couldn't do that, I am really pleased to do it today. I think it's a attractive way to win a football match".

"Newcastle played with their lives and defended with their lives", Mourinho said, having earlier described the opposition as fighting "like animals".

"What we did, therefore, the way we were playing, every player giving everything was fantastic, and to do it in front of our fans, even better".

"We had some [chances] with the score at 0-0", said Mourinho.

The free-kick which led to Ritchie's goal came when Red Devils centre-back Chris Smalling was adjudged to have dive.

"A defender has to concede free-kicks now and again". 'It was an intuitive thing.

And United should have equalised soon after, but when Newcastle failed to clear a corner, Anthony Martial saw two shots blocked on the line by Gayle.

"You know clearly that, so I think it is bad if you put me in a position where I have to criticise a player".

One exception was Alexis Sanchez and he nearly put them ahead in the 57th minute when he rounded Dubravka before his goal-bound shot was blocked by Florian Lejeune.
