Watch Antonio Valencia make a crazy high boot on Christian Atsu in a Premier League match!
Antonio Valencia made one crazy move as United flopped.
The match shockingly ended in a 1-0 defeat for Manchester United, who failed to score against Newcastle United.
They had the chances, but just didn’t took them and eventually lost to a lively Newcastle United.
To be honest, it was probably a deserved result, given that referees failed to award Newcastle a clear penalty. Even worse was the fact that Antonio Valencia should have seen a red card for his crazy high boot.
FULL TIME Newcastle United 1-0 Manchester United
Matt Ritchie’s first goal of the season gives Rafa Benítez’s side a deserved victory and a precious three points at St. James’ Park!!!

Christian Atsu was trying to control a ball that was right before his head. In came Antonio Valencia and almost took off Atsu’s head. It was a crazy “tackle”, for which Valencia should have seen a red card.
Well, referee gave him a yellow and that was that.
So, in a way Newcastle deserved their win, despite United missing some big chances in this match. This result means that City is truly impossible to catch, and will win the league with ease.
