North East UK news Solskjaer's reaction to Newcastle goal and what Man United changed at half-time PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Newcastle United caused Manchester United problems from set plays and Allan Saint-Maximin equalised from a corner before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side pulled away and won 3-1
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he was 'disappointed' with Manchester United's defending in the build-up to Newcastle United's equaliser but the Red Devils' boss was pleased with his side's 'reaction' following their 3-1 win. The lethargic hosts broke the deadlock on the half-hour mark through Marcus Rashford but Saint-Maximim levelled just six minutes later. Newcastle won all four of their corners in the opening 35 minutes and it was noticeable how the Magpies tended to go short before swinging the ball back in, as they did in the build-up to Saint-Maximin's equaliser. Manchester United have struggled to defend crosses and set-pieces this season and Harry Maguire could only head Joe Willock's looping cross into the path of Saint-Maximin, who volleyed home. "They had a few too many corners early on and of course they're always going to be a threat there," Solskjaer told BT Sport. "I'm disappointed with the goal we conceded but, then again, good reaction in the second half.

. Bruno Fernandes scored a penalty late on to make it 3-1 and Newcastle's only chance of note was a speculative effort from substitute Ryan Fraser. So what did Solskjaer change at the break? "Well, we did a couple of little things," he added. "We moved a couple of players a little bit higher in positioning because we felt there were some spaces we didn't use because also the ball didn't travel quick enough. Quicker passing, more movement and score a goal and DJ [Daniel James] did."
