The heartbreak did not stop there as former Everton midfielder Ross Barkley became the latest to overplay at the back, with his poor touch lapped up by Memphis Depay, who squared for Promes
Depay took the ball and forced a save out of Pickford and Walker could only put into his own net when trying to prevent Promes

Though the Dutch finally worked up a couple of periods of pressure in the second half, the hosts looked comfortable until Quincy Promes
profited from a Leon Goretzka error to make the last few minutes interesting.
It is understood that United have watched the 27-cap Netherlands international for a number of years, and that their interest in Promes
started before Benitez was even installed as Magpies manager in March 2016.
