English legend praises Solskjaer for key decision that enabled Newcastle win

However, none of them could score a goal until the 86 minute when Bruno Fernandes scored the second goal for United.

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.

Here are the records broken.

Events on Tyneside did not exactly unfold the way United would have chosen when they found themselves behind with less than two minutes gone - Luke Shaw inadvertently turning Emil Kraft's cross into his own net.

Minutes later, however, and the Red Devils were level, Harry Maguire finding space in the box at a corner before steering his header into the back of the net, a goal that the England global will no doubt hope will help to turn around his recent fortunes after what has been a few months of negative headlines.

In the 2 minute itself, Newcastle United got their first goal as Krafth was putting in a cross.

The Portugal global brushed off his miss to give Manchester United a lead with three minutes left to play after Fernandes produced a sumptuous finish.

United are now up to six points from four games, having won both away matches.

The Red Devils enjoyed their 10th comeback win against Newcastle in the Premier League.

Mata was making his first start in the Premier League this season and created three chances.

Manchester United kickstarted their season as they left it late to wrap up a much-needed 4-1 win over Newcastle at St. James Park.

After the match, Fernandes said that the United players did not know that Wan Bissaka could strike the ball so well.

The Red Devils had their character called into question after Manchester United produced an abject performance against Jose Mourinho's side at Old Trafford.

So, the goal was disallowed, and United was still looking for a goal. They have scored nine and conceded 12 so far.

The victory raised Manchester United to sixth point in 14th, while Newcastle's balance stuck at seventh point in 11th.
