Manchester United won their fourth game on the trot under the management of interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after beating Newcastle United 2-0 away from home last night.
The Red Devils are in red hot form at the moment and now, they are just 6 points behind fourth placed Chelsea, who dropped points against Southampton yesterday.
Belgian international Romelu Lukaku scored his second goal in as many games and Alexis Sanchez returned from his injury to provide the assist for United’s second goal against the Magpies.
However, once again, our young gun, Marcus Rashford, was on fire.

His fantastic free-kick was too hot to handle for Dubravka and Lukaku pounced to score from the rebound in the 64th minute.
16 minutes later, Sanchez provided a super ball to Rashford and the youngster made it 2-0 and secured all three points for the Old Trafford club.
In the back-line, there were some top performances. I’ll single out Valencia, who returned to the starting lineup after a very long time and did well. In the center of the park, Matic and Herrera helped United dominate the midfield battle.
