Amad Diallo has poked fun at Newcastle United by joking he “scored for Sunderland too” during the 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford.

Manchester United edged out a sloppy Magpies side, who surrendered their grip on the final Europa League spot. Chelsea’s win over Brighton gives them the advantage going into the final round of fixtures this weekend.

Newcastle must better Man United’s result on Sunday to stand any chance of European football next season. Many, including the bookmakers, expected Eddie Howe’s men to grind out a vital away win last night.

However, defensive errors and wastefulness in front of goal stopped Newcastle in their tracks. Former Sunderland winger Amad restored the Red Devils’ advantage shortly after Anthony Gordon cancelled out Kobbie Mainoo’s first-half opener.

He spent last season on loan at Newcastle’s biggest rivals and joked post-match that the goal meant as much to the Black Cats as it did for Man United. The 21-year-old was also proud to net his first Premier League goal - at the Magpies’ expense.

“Today the team was motivated to play this game and I could see my teammates fighting for everyone,” he added. “We are happy to win the last game at home. It is my first goal in the Premier League for Man United and I hope to score more.

“I have worked hard for this moment. This season hasn’t been easy for me as I got injured in pre-season. But scoring this goal in the last home game is a big feeling for me. I was waiting for a long time for the first start but I’ve gone step by step.”
