Manchester United returned to winning ways in the Premier League as they recorded a 3-1 victory over Newcastle at Old Trafford.
A series of disappointing results in recent weeks have all but ended United’s unlikely title challenge, but this was a game in which they consolidated their place in the top four.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring after an impressive solo run, before Allan Saint-Maximin equalised for the visitors following some questionable defending from the home side.
Daniel James, buoyed by his performance in Turin in midweek, restored United’s lead with a drilled finish from close range that went in at the post, before Bruno Fernandes gave the hosts breathing space from the penalty spot after Rashford had been felled in the box.
There was a late debut for the 17-year-old Shola Shoretire after he was an unused substitute against Real Sociedad.
