Against a weak Newcastle side, Manchester United ended up winning 4-1 on Saturday night in the Premier League.
Humiliated by Tottenham before the international window (1-6), Manchester United had to revive in Premier League, against Newcastle, on Saturday night, only 3 days before his shock against the PSG in the Champions League, next Tuesday at the Parc des Princes. Mission accomplished. Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side took their 2nd victory in 4 league games against the Magpies (1-4), to move up the standings (currently 14th).
Pogba on the bench
MU was somewhat disturbed by the many absences. Anthony Martial was suspended, Edinson Cavani not yet operational and Mason Greenwood forfeited, while Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek, them, started on the bench. They could all be available against the Parisians. Thus, Scott McTominay, Fred, Juan Mata and Daniel James were launched in the eleven and the Mancunians largely dominated the debates, back to the wall after the csc of Luke Shaw entry, on a cross from the former Amienois Emil Krafth (2nd).
Rashford in all the right moves
After a nice goal denied to Bruno Fernandes (20th), it’s a header from Harry maguire who reset the counters to zero (23rd). And if the Portuguese playmaker missed his chance with a generous penalty (58 ‘), he then gave his team the advantage with an unstoppable strike from the top corner (86’). Decisive passer for Fernandes but also for Aaron Wan-Bissaka (90th), Marcus Rashford concluded this offensive festival in added time (96th). Confidence is regained before C1.
