Updated: March 5, 2009

Sir Alex had warned his players over complacency citing Barcelonas recent slump as a prime example.

After a hard fought victory over spurs at the weekend,in the carling cup, united would be relieved to have come away with all three points from newcastle.

United had the difficult task of coming from behind to beat the toon army.

Hardly ten minutes had elapsed when Newcastle took an unlikely lead.

Both sides had chances in the second half though united posed more of a threat going forward.They went ahead on 56 minutes through Dimitar Berabatov .

Rest of the game was mostly uninspiring with united content with keeping posession..though a few scary moments were averted by the alert Edwin van der Sar.

United are now seven points in front with a game in hand on the rest of the pack.
Things look ominous for Chelsea and Liverpool.

    Coloccini should have got the ball out of there before the second goal instead of whining for an offside. Berbatov should have never been able to tap in.
