Manchester united defeated Newscastle united when both sides met in a highly anticipated premier league clash at Old trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo (brace), Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard meant a second half strike from Manquillo was only a consolation as Ole Gunner Solskjaer's sealed an impressive 4-1 victory over their opponents.

United need a world class defensive midfielder

Another thing we learnt from United's 2-1 win over Newcastle is the fact that Ole Gunner Solskjaer's decision to stick with the defensive midfielders at his disposal could prove to be detrimental to united chances to win the Premier league title this season.

Sancho will shine with time

Jodan Sancho made his first start in front of a packed Old trafford stadium since his big money move from Borussia Dortmund earlier this summer.

The 21 year old showed glimpses of his potential on the left wing side with his pinpoint runs and incisive dribbling. The English man is obviously talented and would undoubtedly become a star at Old trafford if given enough time.

Pogba and Bruno still running the show

The return of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester united meant the spotlight at the club had been taken off Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba who have both had fantastic starts to the new premier league season.

Well, that did not prove to be the case against Newcastle united on Saturday as both players played vital parts in united's win with Bruno Fernandes hitting a stunning long range goal while Paul Pogba also added to his assist tally.

Cristiano Ronaldo is back

Quite a good number of spectators and fans had criticized the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo with many of the opinion that the Portuguese attacker is way past his prime.

The 36 year old shut his critics with a subtle performance against Newcastle united as he hit a brace despite being presented with a few clear cut chances.
