Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to start the Spain global for the trip to Newcastle as the Red Devils boss made a number of changes from the team that lost 6-1 to Tottenham Hotspur last time out.
Further strikes from Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford gave the Red Devils all three points. "We have many good players and it's about taking your chances when you do get them".
Their manager O. Solskjaer went with a formation of 4-2-3-1 with Rashford as the sole striker.
The Newcastle coach Steve Bruce chose a formation of 4-1-4-1 as he kept Wilson as the only striker.
Immediately, Manchester United began trying to tie.
Not only is he a quality player but he's different to United's other options so he adds a dynamic to the attack that's otherwise missing. "He is playing for the one of the biggest teams in the world, he is captain of one of the biggest teams in the world and he plays for a big national team", Fernandes - directly involved in 19 goals in his 18 Premier League appearances, scoring in each of his last three matches - told MUTV. However, in the 20 minute, they got a breakthrough, or they thought so until the linesman declared Mata offside. The Reds did not have to wait much as Harry Maguire scored the equalizer for his team, heading the ball past Darlow. However, none of them could score a goal until the 86 minute when Bruno Fernandes scored the second goal for United.
Newcastle started the game strongly and took the lead in the second minute. Rashford fired in the 15th minute, but his ball hit the defense and passed just over the goal.
In the end, we rediscovered our shooting boots late on as we scored thrice towards the end to win the game 4-1.
"[He did some] great defending".
The 59-year-old said after the defeat to United: "It is work in progress for us".
Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Solskjaer said that the victory marks the start of United's season. Manchester United are thrilled on the contrary to have won the game before they start their UCL campaign against PSG on 21 October.
