Newcastle United V Manchester United: The Best Moments In the Premier League (with video clips)

All matches that have been chosen are from a football fans opinion, enjoy.

This is a historic rivalry between two football clubs that were competing at the highest level long before the birth of the Premier League.

In the 90’s these two clubs were both on a mission with the same objective = to win league titles, but Manchester United had the edge over Newcastle. Newcastle were determined to win the Premier League but Manchester United always were one step ahead.

The 90’s saw Keegan’s “entertainers” team come close to winning the PL as the toon had two consecutive 2nd place finishes.

Clips contain the following: Geordie legends scoring, heated moments in game and disgusting finishes from Alan Shearer.
