Following up to two months of absence, Manchester United and French midfielder Paul Pogba returned with a grand style to inspire Manchester United to a 4-1 victory despite the red devils falling to an early goal in the first half.
United’s victory over the toonside means they are now eight points behind league leaders Manchester City and are back to the second position of the premier league table according to reports in TeamTalk.
Paul Pogba assisted his countryman Anthony Martial to grab the equalizer in the first half and the red devils piled more pressure on the visitors as Chris Smalling grabbed the lead before the end of the first half.
The atmosphere was fired up as Jose Mourinho brought in Zlatan Ibrahimovich who has been on the sidelines for some months and he almost grabbed a goal but was denied by the goalkeeper.
Falling to an early defeat was the first time united conceded at home this season but the end time result also meant Jose Mourinho got the better of Newcastle coach Rafa Benitez as the two haven’t clashed in about ten years.
The game also saw Belgian attacker Romelu Lukaku end his goal drought as he exchanged passes with Spanish midfielder Juan Mata before lashing a hot one into the net and that gave the crowd another reason to cheer.
