Footage has been posted on social media appearing to show a fight break out outside St James’ Park yesterday evening.
It came as fans were making their way home after watching Steve Bruce’s side snatch all three points against Manchester United.
Two Newcastle United lads tried taking on three Red Devils ‘fans’ in a punch up between themselves in front of onlookers.
Another video of the scrap was uploaded, showing the crowd watching and chanting “United!”…
Matthew Longstaff produced the only goal of the game to become the youngest player to score on his Premier League debut for the Magpies.
They climb to 16th in the Premier League table, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side are just two points above the bottom three and with two wins out of eight matches this season.

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce told Sky Sports after the game: “When you lose badly everyone comes under the pump. Thankfully we responded and for a young kid to make his debut and blast one in from 20 yards is something else. I’ve waited something like 20 years for a result against Manchester United. I’m delighted for everybody. What we needed was a response after last week and that was there for everyone to see.
“All you can do is answer your critics by getting a result. We knew this run was going to be difficult. I hope this is the turning point. I know I’m not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but the nonsense that flies around is insulting. Hopefully this helps the cause.”
Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “We don’t create enough chances to win a game of football. We’re disappointed. We were missing quite a few key players, but that’s no excuse. The players worked hard and ran their socks off but, at the moment, when there is a decision to be made, the players don’t do it instinctively.
“That’s what we’ve been working on and luckily for us it’s now the international break. We get time to evaluate what’s gone on over these eight games. We’ve given ourselves a big, big uphill challenge to get among the top four but it’s tight and we need to get a run together.”
