Manchester United will end the weekend back in second place in the Premier League as they fought back to seal a 3-1 win over Newcastle.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were forced to survive a few scares from the Magpies but a late Bruno Fernandes penalty secured another key three points.

Newcastle did look up for causing a shock early on as Joelinton forced a springing stop from David De Gea.

However, United ruthlessness in attack saw their first real attempt result in a goal as Marcus Rashford fired past Karl Darlow at his near post.

But Newcastle were in no mood to bow before the break as star man Allan Saint-Maximin spectacularly volleyed home Joe Willock’s ball.

The Frenchman continued to carry the Magpies threat in the second half but United found themselves back in front, as Dan James slammed home from close range.

And that little break was all United needed to step it up late on, as Willock caught Rashford inside the box, and the ever-reliable Fernandes slammed home from the spot.

Full Time at Old Trafford it’s Manchester United 3 Newcastle 1
