The three games of the 11th round of the English Premiership were played, and Manchester United and Newcastle United played a tough match and drew without goals. Manchester United welcomed Newcastle with Cristiano Ronaldo returning to the starting line-up, and the game ended goalless.
In the first half, Newcastle had the best chance. An incredible accident occurred after a chance for Joelinton. The Brazilian headed twice in one attack and hit the goal frame both times. The break went goalless. We saw the most interesting detail in the 49th minute.
Newcastle player Fabian Schar took a free kick in his own half and passed it to the keeper. However, goalkeeper Nick Pope thought he was going to take a free-kick, and the wily Ronaldo saw that the free-kick had already been taken, took the ball, and scored into an empty net.
Referee Craig Pawson, who was not watching the situation, considered that no foul had been committed and so ruled after consulting with the assistants. Ronaldo appealed and received a yellow card.

David de Gea reveals how Manchester United felt in the lockerroom
"I think we miss another opportunity to win the three points," he told MUTV when asked what the mood was like in the dressing room.
"I think we fight until the end, to be honest. We had a couple of massive chances at the end but that is football, sometimes you miss your chances and at least we keep a clean sheet. "I think that's really important because I think Newcastle is a great team, they're doing very well over the season, so yeah, let's keep doing well, recovering well, because on Wednesday we have a big game again." There were no goals, so the rivals shared the points.
The Chelsea team won 0:2 at the always unpleasant away game against Aston Villa and thus continued its revival under the new coach Graham Potter. Both goals were scored by Mason Mount, one each in two different halves. Southampton and West Ham drew 1:1, while the match between Leeds and Arsenal was delayed for more than half an hour due to a power outage.
Results and scorers:
- Southampton - West Ham 1:1 (Perraud 20' / Rice 64')
- Manchester United - Newcastle 0:0
- Aston Villa - Chelsea 0:2 (Mount 6', 65')
