Manchester United returned to winning ways in style on Saturday as they came from a goal down to beat Newcastle United 4-1 at Old Trafford.

The visitors silenced a vociferous home crowd when they grabbed the lead in the 14th minute, thanks to Dwight Gayle’s precise shot. But, their joy didn’t last long, Anthony Martial headed in Paul Pogba’s cross before the hosts grabbed the lead going into half-time as Chris Smalling converted from Ashley Young’s pinpoint cross.

Manchester United then grabbed the game by the scruff of its neck as Pogba finished a fine counter attacking move early on in the second half, before Romelu Lukaku rounded off the win sixteen minutes later. And as the Belgian striker ended his scoring drought for the Red Devils, fans heaved a huge sigh of relief.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a surprise return to action on the night, and fans celebrated his comeback.

But, the name on everyone’s lips was Paul Pogba, another comeback man for the hosts, as he inspired the fantastic win for Manchester United.
