Van Gaal criticised his players after a thrilling draw

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal looked less than amused as his side shed their boring tag to take part in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Newcastle at St James' Park.

Unlikely hero Paul Dummett snatched a precious point for relegation-threatened Newcastle as Manchester United twice squandered the lead to draw 3-3 at St James' Park.

The full-back drilled home a superb 90th-minute equaliser to end a run of four successive defeats in all competitions after Wayne Rooney looked to have claimed the points for the visitors.

Rooney had opened the scoring with a ninth-minute penalty and Jesse Lingard made it 2-0 eight minutes before the break.

But Georginio Wijnaldum and Aleksandar Mitrovic gave the home side hope and although Rooney scored again 11 minutes from time, Dummett's (below) late intervention denied Louis van Gaal victory on a night when he may well have been angry, but could not have been bored.

Van Gaal seemed to be reasonably satisfied after his side staggered to a 1-0 FA Cup win against League One side Sheffield United last weekend, but he was less than amused as they conceded three goals and spurned chances to wrap up all three points.

In this BT Sport interview, his annoyance was evident as he summed up his team's display:

Newcastle manager Steve McClaren offered a much more upbeat version of the game, as he praised his side's battling spirit as they snatched a late point.
