English legend praises Solskjaer for key decision that enabled Newcastle win

Newcastle United vs Manchester United, Premier League: live score and latest updates

Manchester United: David de Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, James, Fernandes, Mata, and Rashford.

And the Norwegian boss was delighted with the character his team showed. We play for such a big club and such a big team. What happened against Tottenham can't happen again.

Even after Harry Maguire had levelled with a thumping 23rd-minute header as he put his own hard spell behind him with an assured display, the visitors were repeatedly frustrated by Magpies keeper Karl Darlow, who made a fine 58th-minute penalty save from Fernandes. This club deserves better than that. He needs to keep doing what he did today, not about the goal he scored because it's not what he has to do but defending like he has to do and giving us the chance up front to be secure when we lose the ball.

"I think he's done a magnificent job, I think he's been superb in what he's done".

"Today it was ideal, after that defeat".

United continued to press, and in the 58th minute, the team got a penalty, but was unusually wasted by Bruno Fernandez and Newcastle goalkeeper Carlo Darlo saved it.

Solskjaer resisted calls to start Van de Beek following United's 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham prior to the global break - the Dutch midfielder replacing Daniel James 14 minutes from the end at St James' Park.


The Red Devils will take on top-four rivals Chelsea FC in their next Premier League game at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon. "He gave me a great pass and I just needed to do the rest".

"I wouldn't say we have answered them [the critics]", he told Sky Sports.

Stoppage-time strikes from Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Rashford cemented the win, leaving Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce bemoaning his side's naivety.

"We have a free-kick in the 85th-minute and Jonjo puts it in the box and we don't deal with it on the edge". However, they have got great potential with a lot of great players.

Manchester United was not satisfied with the hat-trick, as Marcus Rashford was the scorer this time in the 94th minute after a long intercourse from Bruno Fernandez, to separate Rashford and score fourth against Newcastle.

"We had moments ourselves". Today, it was a very good performance by Dan.
