Jack Colback feels the critics were too quick to jump on Newcastle following the loss at the Liberty Stadium, which came a week after they started the season with a 2-2 draw against Southampton.

"It's quite scary how quickly this season everyone is being criticised, it's daft after two games, but that's the nature of the game," the Newcastle midfielder said after drawing against Manchester United.

"Everyone is quick to jump on the negativity but as players you have to focus. We were disappointed last week, but we focused quickly on the next game and we have got a point."

Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle Utd: Thauvin debuts for Newcastle

Newcastle went to Old Traffiord, where Steve McClaren spent three years as Assistant Manager under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Magpies boss looked relaxed as he met up with old friends, including Ryan Giggs, but by mid-way through the second half he seemed to have a bit of the 'hairdryer' about him; shouting, animated and well out of his technical area. It was almost inspiring but Sir Alex Ferguson, he is not.

Aleksandar Mitrovic started for the first time and new-signing Florian Thauvin made his debut, though Thauvin was almost-immediately fouled when he came on after 69 minutes by Man Utd's Luke Shaw.

Most will credit Tim Krul with the scoreline as Newcastle held on and even shone in the 91st-minute, though Thauvin couldn't quite reach the ball.
