Together with the likes of Alan Shearer among their positions, Peter Beardsley, Les Ferdinand and David Ginola, Newcastle looked unstoppable at times — however Keegans men took their foot off the pedal as it mattered.
On a Monday night in St James Park, the home audience roared with fervour in their team but tension remained as Newcastle failed to make their dominance count.

Manchester United narrowed the gap with leaders Newcastle to just 1 point and proceeded to secure the name with some thoughts games thrown in.
Ferguson said because they did against his side groups like Nottingham Forest wouldnt try as hard against Newcastle.
Fergusons words prompted one of the most memorable moments at Premier League history when Keegan lost control of his emotions at a Sky Sports interview and beautifully proclaimed:We would love it we conquer them.
Unfortunately it was Manchester United — and — Ferguson — that had the last laugh.
This is a glorious day in Newcastles history but supporters would believe this emphatic victory was only a few months.
Newcastle failed to win a first league title from 69 decades — and the wait goes — but Keegan enjoyed a moment against his nemesis in sunlight.

In a lacklustre opening 10 minutes for Manchester United, Kenedy gave Newcastle the lead and Yoshinori Muto.
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea created an excellent save to deny Newcastle and Muto were denied a penalty for handball through an outstanding first half.
Yet Mourinho worked his magic in half-time, introducing Marouane Fellaini Juan Mata along with Alexis Sanchez from the bench.
