Manchester United comfortably beat Newcastle 4-1 in the Premier League this evening. Goals from Anthony Martial (2), Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford meant Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s took all three points on Boxing Day.

The Red Devils fell behind thanks to Matty Longstaff but it wasn’t long before Martial equalised.

Greenwood would then rocket home from just outside the area to make it 2-1 before Rashford headed home.

Martial added a fourth early in the second half to underline their dominance in the game.

The result leaves United four points behind Chelsea who occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot but lost to Southampton 2-0 earlier in the day.

Nothing he could do for their opener and little to do thereafter.

Found space at the edges of Newcastle’s back three and lovely floated ball for United’s third.

Generally solid performance from the centre half if not as dominating in the air as Maguire.

Outmuscled by Joelinton for Newcastle opener but won the battle as the match wore on.

Some probing runs forward joining in attacks and a decent defensive shift from the left-back.

Had to temper his tackles after being booked in first minute. Subbed at the break.

Booked for a foul on Schar, set up Martial’s first but still lacks something playing in the No 10 role.

Distribution was a little loose at times but performed the anchor role adequately.

Fierce shot to put United ahead, faded a touch as the match wore on. Failed to convert Mata cross on 73 minutes.

Ran and ran and rose brilliantly to bury header for United’s third, Subbed on the hour mark.

Elements of good fortune in both goals but took them well and looked strong and committed throughout.

Looked up for it from the introduction with long range effort wide early in second half, shot saved soon after.
