McClaren reacts to 'monumental' Newcastle draw

Newcastle snatched a late equaliser to earn a 3-3 draw against Manchester United in an entertaining clash at St James' Park.

The visitors went ahead on nine minutes through a Wayne Rooney penalty following a controversial handball decision against Chancel Mbemba.

Manchester United doubled their lead when winger Jesse Lingard, recalled to the starting XI, converted following a swift counter-attack.

Newcastle reduced the deficit just before half-time as Georginio Wijnaldum swept in a volley following Aleksandar Mitrovic's knockdown. And they equalised with a penalty from Mitrovic when referee Mike Dean ruled Chris Smalling had pulled back the Serbian forward.

Manchester United made it 3-2 when England captain Rooney cracked in a fine strike after Memphis Depay's shot was blocked.

Just when time seemed to be running out, Newcastle snatched a dramatic draw through defender Paul Dummett in the 90th minute.

After the match Newcastle boss Steve McClaren said, "you don't realise what a monumental effort that is, to come back from 2-0 and 3-2, and to perform as we did":

Newcastle United remain in the bottom three, a point adrift of Swansea City.
