Two weeks after their collapse at home against Tottenham (1-6), the Red Devils were not really reassured during their trip to Newcastle, despite the victory (1-4).
Luke Shaw’s self-defeating goal from the second minute said everything about the obvious lack of confidence of the Mancunians.
In the 23rd minute, the equalizer of Harry Maguire – also author of a catastrophic start to the season – allowed them to return to the match and dominate their opponent.
But, in the second period, apart from a penalty missed by Bruno Fernandes on the hour mark, the Mancunians struggled to accelerate.
The absence of Anthony Martial, suspended, clearly thwarted the offensive expression of the formation of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The very late start of Paul Pogba made it possible to change the score, even if the influence of the French was not spectacular.
Bruno Fernandes ended up giving a decisive advantage (86th) when the draw seemed written. Wan-Bissaka ensured victory in stride (90th), before Rashford once again punished the Magpies (90th + 6).
