MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Manchester United slumped to back-to-back home defeats in the Premier League for the first time in 11 years by losing 1-0 to Newcastle on Saturday, deepening the gloom engulfing the champions in David Moyes' first season in charge.

Yohan Cabaye's 61st-minute goal earned Newcastle its first win at Old Trafford since 1972 and ensured United has picked up just two points from its last four games to slip way off the pace in its title defense.

Without the suspended Wayne Rooney, United lacked inspiration and creativity in another lackluster performance that will severely test the patience of fans who are intent on giving Moyes time after replacing Alex Ferguson in the offseason.

United began the weekend 12 points behind leader Arsenal and could be even further adrift by Sunday night.
