Match report as Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford seal Manchester United victory at St. James’ Park after Luke Shaw own goal

Bruno Fernandes made amends for a missed penalty with a spectacular late strike that inspired Manchester United to a 4-1 victory at Newcastle.

A stunning save from goalkeeper Karl Darlow saw Fernandes miss his first penalty in Manchester United colours at the 11th attempt, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side looked destined for a draw after Harry Maguire’s header had cancelled out Luke Shaw’s second-minute own goal.

But a dominant Manchester United claimed a deserved and emphatic victory when Fernandes rifled into the top corner with five minutes remaining, Aaron Wan-Bissaka claimed his first senior goal and Marcus Rashford’s stoppage-time fourth claimed three points at St. James’ Park.

Manchester United climb to 16th in the Premier League on six points after their second victory of the season, a point and four places behind Newcastle in 11th.
