'Manchester will score, always scores', but it was not so in yesterday's match. While the United Keeper, Lindegaard was getting all clean sheets in all his starting league matches, it was turn for Red Devil's forward to get a clean sheet for not putting a goal behind Newcastle's net.
United were all over the field once again this season due to some tight defending and exquisite attacks, particularly by Ba, castle's new knight. The misery of United defeat continued from 2012 eve to 2012 from the opposition final score being 3.
The defeat leaves the visitors three points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City after their win on Tuesday night.
Ba's 33rd-minute opener came through Tim Krul's free-kick flicked on by Shola Ameobi for Ba to superbly hook home from 16 yards.
And two minutes into the second half, Cabaye added a second with a wonderful 30-yard free-kick that bounced off the underside of the bar and over the line.
The Reds tries to pressure and have a goal, but it was not Devil's night. All the passes and tactic were going wrong for Sir Alex and United.
Rooney, Nani, Berbatov, Giggs, Park and other devils seemed helpless to some mystical play of Newcastle United.
And to round off a dreadful night for Sir Alex Ferguson's side, Phil Jones put through his own net after another long punt up field by Krul hit him on the leg and wrongfooted Anders Lindegaard.
There's now huge load of work for Sir Alex and for his team to cope with in this year, if they want to be the champions once again as last season.
