Manchester United 4-1 Newcastle United
Cristiano Ronaldo, the Prince of Old Trafford was in full swing in his return to the city. After critics calling Ronny unfit for the Prem, Ronaldo shattered the criticism just in the first half. The other stars in this game were Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes. Cristiano opened his account in the injury time of the first half after the Newcastle keeper made a mess of a simple grab coming off the foot of Mason. Ronaldo took the chance and scored a tap-in. Newcastle did pull one goal back when Javi Manquillo scored in the 56th minute.
In the second half, Bruno Fernandes was on fire and so was Matic. Although Ronaldo scored the second goal, the two midfielders dominated the pitch. Ronaldo scored his second goal by pushing the ball between the keeper’s legs. But the best goal of them all was scored by Bruno Fernandes, who scored a screamer from the D-top. Jesse Lingard sealed the game for the red Devils by scoring, coming off the bench. 4-1, Man U.
