Goals from Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye, and a Phil Jones own goal, secured Newcastle a 3-0 win over second place Manchester United.

The red devils are feeling the pressure after they lost to Blackburn on New Year's Eve.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson gave credit to Newcastle's three "fantastic goals" while Newcastle boss Alan Pardew said "we deserved to win".

The result puts United three points behind fierce rivals Mancheter City.
