EPL: Man United win at Newcastle

News

Manchester United got back on track as Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire enjoyed sweet moments of redemption in their side’s 4-1 win at Newcastle on Saturday.

After Luke Shaw’s own goal gave Newcastle an early lead, United captain Maguire scored the equaliser.

Maguire’s first Premier League goal since February was a cathartic moment after a troubled few months marred by poor performance on the pitch and his Greek court case off it.

Fernandes also went from zero to hero as the midfielder’s second half penalty was saved by Karl Darlow, before he hit a superb strike to put United ahead in the closing minutes.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka made it three with his first goal for United and Marcus Rashford wrapped up the late goal blitz in stoppage-time.

Although United left it late to finish off Newcastle, the result was no more than they deserved and Solskjaer will hope it is the start of a better period for his team after their troubled opening to the campaign.
