PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Manchester United sealed a confidence-boosting 4-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday night -- with the mercurial Marcus Rashford playing a starring role.- Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S. only)The home side took a shock head after just two minutes, when Luke Shaw turned a relatively innocuous cross into his own net -- much to the dismay of a helpless David De Gea. However, the early goal appeared to fire Man United into life, who struck back 20 minutes later. Harry Maguire took a big step towards redemption following a tumultuous few weeks, powerfully heading home from a United corner.The travelling side dominated proceedings thereafter, and finally got their reward with 10 minutes to go -- Bruno Fernandes finishing expertly from a Rashford pass. Aaron Wan-Bissaka added a third moments later, before Rashford finally grabbed a goal of his own to seal the win in style.Positives Despite going a goal down just minutes after kick-off, United didn't let their heads drop. Instead, they raised their game, showing hunger and appetite not seen for some time. While the United defence did look susceptible to Newcastle counter-attacks, overall, things were a lot tighter than they had been in recent weeks. The travelling side were quick to close down their opposite numbers, limiting the Magpies to just a handful of attempts.NegativesWhile they were much improved from a fortnight ago, it must be said that weaknesses do remain. Long balls over the top and counter-attacks both seem to cause panic in the heart of the United defence, a problem that can't be rectified after only two weeks.In an attacking sense, the Red Devils also could have been more clinical in the first half.Manager rating out of 107 -- Opted for a number of drastic changes, with Paul Pogba being the most obvious absentee. Seemingly, the changes all paid off, as there was a notable improvement in terms of work rate and overall intensity. Daniel James and Juan Mata both came back into the starting XI, and looked incredibly dangerous throughout -- justifying their selections. In addition, Solskjaer's decision to play Rashford as the lone striker was similarly inspired, as the England international caused Newcastle all kinds of problems centrally.Player ratings (1-10; 10 = best, players introduced after 70 minutes get no rating)GK David De Gea, 7 -- Pulled off a number of superb saves to keep his side in the game. Appeared to shake off an early shoulder injury after a collision with the post.DF Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 7 -- Defensively sound, but often wasteful going forward.

.DF Victor Lindelof, 6 -- Positionally, the central defender was worryingly wayward at times. Nevertheless, his solid distribution allowed United to build possession well from the back.DF Harry Maguire, 7 -- A far more assured, disciplined display from the skipper; but then again, after the Spurs "disasterclass," the only way was up. Took his headed goal very well.DF Luke Shaw, 6 -- Deflected a cross into his own net for Newcastle's opening goal. Recovered fairly well in the second half.MF Fred, 6 -- The Brazilian was very often wasteful in possession, much to the dismay of his teammates. Hardly the return to action he would have wanted.MF Scott McTominay, 7 -- Comfortable in possession and positionally disciplined. Playing as the most withdrawn United midfielder, he did a solid job for his side.MF Bruno Fernandes, 9 -- Saw his brilliantly-taken goal ruled out for offside in the first half. The 26-year-old also missed a penalty on the hour mark, but would soon make up for it - firing home late on to give United a vital lead.FW Juan Mata, 8 -- Took the corner kick which led to Harry Maguire's powerful header. The Spanish playmaker oozed class throughout.FW Daniel James, 6 -- Looked dangerous in spells, but as is often the case with the young Welshman, his end product was once again missing.FW Marcus Rashford, 9 -- The forward was a live wire and a constant thorn in the side of the Newcastle defenders. He earned a penalty for the away side, set up United's second goal, and grabbed one of his own with seconds remaining.SubstitutesMF Paul Pogba, 7 -- Injected a bit of offensive quality in the second period, which Man United desperately needed.MF Donny van de Beek, 7 -- Started the move that led to Fernandes' beautifully crafted goal. Had a crucial late impact.MF Nemanja Matic, N/R -- On for injury time as United went on to score a fourth.
