Sir Alex Ferguson: "We missed a stack of chances, but you have to admire the character and spirit of the Newcastle team. They deserved a point without question.
"We had three cleared off the line so that was a bit unlucky. Then we went and missed two or three good chances. When you are creating chances you hope you are doing enough to win the match and we should have won the match.
"We did not play as well as we have been because Newcastle did not allow us to play. I have nothing but praise for them."
