Wayne Rooney, in sensational form, had scored two and set up one but the Magpies battled back twice to earn a share of the spoils in a captivating encounter
Paul Dummett scored a last-gasp equaliser to deny Manchester United victory against Newcastle United in a thrilling 3-3 draw at St James’s Park.
In a controversial and thrilling contest, Wayne Rooney’s penalty and a Jesse Lingard strike had the visitors two goals ahead, but Georginio Wijnaldum got one back prior to half-time.
Newcastle dominated the second period and Aleksandar Mitrovic won a penalty after tussling with Chris Smalling, converting it himself.
Rooney netted with a stunning finish with 11 minutes remaining, but that would not be enough for victory as Dummett’s deflected effort at the death earned Steve McClaren’s side a crucial point.
The result sees Newcastle, who stay in the bottom three, end a three-match run of Premier League defeats without scoring a goal, while Louis van Gaal’s fifth-placed side have now only won one of their last eight.
