Manchester United are back to winning ways in the Premier League following the win over struggling Newcastle United. The Red Devils had played a surprising 1-1 draw with hosts West Brom in their last outing in the league and they needed to beat Newcastle United at home to resurrect their title challenge. For the West Brom game last weekend, Manchester United trailed to the home team in the opening minutes of the game through Senegalese striker MbayeNiang before Bruno Fernandes scored at the end of first half to rescue a point for his club. The draw at the home of the Baggies left Manchester United seven points adrift of league leaders and city rivals Manchester City having played a game more as at last weekend. Manchester City then moved ten points clear of the Red Devils by winning that outstanding game at Everton on Wednesday night. Manchester City beat hosts Everton 3-1 to establish a ten-point advantage at the Premier League summit.
Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling scored the lone goal for the Citizens as they beat hosts Arsenal 1-0 at the weekend to make it 18 wins in a row in all competitions and move 13 points clear of Manchester United before they kicked a ball against the Magpies. Manchester United were able to trim the gap back to ten points with the 3-1 win over Newcastle United. The Red Devils didn’t have things their own way against Newcastle United after the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at the half-time break. The opening goal from Marcus Rashford on the half hour mark was cancelled out by the goal from Newcastle United winger Saint Allan-Maximinnine minutes from the interval. Manchester United went on to score two second half goals through Daniel James and Bruno Fernandes (penalty) to win the game.
