Ferguson happy with Man Utd performance against Newcastle

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes his side deserved more than a solitary point against Newcastle United, manutd.com reports.

The champions went ahead through Javier Hernandez, but were pegged back by a controversial penalty awarded in the second half. Rio Ferdinand’s ball-winning tackle on Hatem Ben Arfa was adjudged to be a penalty by the assistant referee and Demba Ba scored for the Magpies. United then created chance after chance, but could not find a winner. Ferguson was furious at the awarding of the penalty, saying that it was a ‘travesty’ and the only person in the ground who thought it was a penalty was the assistant referee.

The United boss is unconcerned with the result and believes that if his side continue to play like they did against Newcastle, they will give teams some maulings. ‘It was a fantastic performance from us. Chicharito had four clear chances and we played some great football. The second half was just an onslaught and to not get three points from that is just a travesty. I’m not concerned if we’re playing like that. Most of the time, we’d score three or four goals in that game’, Ferguson said.
