London: Manchester United slumped to their second home Premier League defeat in the space of four days as Yohan Cabaye`s goal gave Newcastle a first league victory at Old Trafford since 1972, according to reports.

According to BBC, the home side struggled to break down the Magpies, other than a flurry of chances at the start of the second half, with Patrice Evra heading against the post before the ball rebounded against the Vurnon Anita`s arm.

Newcastle struck on the break when Cabaye fired home Moussa Sissoko`s cross, the report said.

Robin van Persie had a header disallowed as Manchester United tried to respond, but Newcastle held on for a famous victory, which means home form that had been cause for concern for boss David Moyes is now turning into a crisis, the report added.

The Scot`s side have dropped 13 points out of 24 in front of their own fans this season and suffered back-to-back league defeats at Old Trafford for the first time since the end of the 2001-02 season, the report further said.
