On the pitch, it could be argued that many of the home side had also gone missing as the visitors enjoyed a comfortable afternoon in the sunshine but there were one or two heartwarming performances. Goalscorer Jack Colback refuses to lie down and roll over while Ayoze Perez continues to show flashes of promise up front and there was a welcome return of captain Fabricio Coloccini to the defence.

However, the majority of the Magpies on display were short on confidence, ability and application and this squad of players is simply not good enough for this division .United must be one of the weakest sides in the league physically, and while most Premier League teams break at pace, this current team move forward at a snail's pace while defending like statues.

The visitors should have increased their lead long before Harry Kane was given an added time breakaway strike but there were few chances at the other end as United failed to test Vorm. Colback hit a weak shot after controlling a Janmaat pass and the Dutch defender hit two shots from distance that both flew harmlessly wide.

And so ended another dispiriting display that still leaves United searching for the points to secure Premier League status.
