Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side quickly responded as Harry Maguire headed the visitors level at St James' Park before Wan Bissaka stole the headlines with a stunner.

Both teams already have a history in the Champions League that can not be forgotten easily as it only happened in 2019 with the Red Devils overturning a 2-0 defeat in the first leg at the Old Trafford with a 3-1 win to go through to the quarter-finals.

On the 23-year-old, Solskjaer added: "I think you see today and in training, he's so neat and tidy, I don't think he lost the ball once".

"The season started for us today". We play for such a big team. "We work with all the players to express themselves and show what they're good at".

Although United left it late to finish off Newcastle, the result was no more than they deserved and Solskjaer will hope it is the start of a better period for his team after their troubled opening to the campaign. "Everyone needs to be better, starting with me, I need to look at myself first and then at what the group needs to do better", Fernandes said.

'Today it was flawless, after that defeat.

David De Gea had to be equally resilient to claw away a stabbed Callum Wilson effort off the line at the other end, and it was not until the clock had reached 86 minutes that United slipped into top gear.

Van de Beek has yet to start a league match for United since his summer switch from Ajax.

Fernandes said: 'It was a great goal but Rashford did what we trained, overlap from me, come inside, little touch.

"We have a free-kick in the 85th-minute and Jonjo puts it in the box and we don't deal with it on the edge".

Fernandes has scored three goals and has made two assists in four Premier League games in the 2020-21 season so far.

"We had moments ourselves".

Chadwick also hailed Rashford and Maguire, adding: "I thought the team selection was very fearless from Solskjaer, keeping out Paul Pogba, starting Scott McTominay - he was excellent in that position, showed great energy and it was certainly a reaction that the manager will have been absolutely delighted with".
