However, they have got great potential with a lot of great players.
Their manager O. Solskjaer went with a formation of 4-2-3-1 with Rashford as the sole striker. Steve Bruce has called those criticisms "unfair" and has tried to be more bold by playing 4-4-2 more often than 5-4-1.
Immediately, Manchester United began trying to tie.
"We're disappointed that we conceded the two goals late on, of course, but for me, it didn't give a true reflection on it".
United came back and scored a third goal in the 90th minute, after another make for Rashford. However, in the 20 minute, they got a breakthrough, or they thought so until the linesman declared Mata offside.
Minutes later, however, and the Red Devils were level, Harry Maguire finding space in the box at a corner before steering his header into the back of the net, a goal that the England worldwide will no doubt hope will help to turn around his recent fortunes after what has been a few months of negative headlines. With that, the score at half-time was 1-1.
The second half began, and both the teams were creating chances as they were looking to take the lead.
"It was even more hard to believe that he scored a goal".
Newcastle also received the boost of Allan Saint-Maximin signing a new six-year contract this week, and he will likely drift to United's left flank to test Luke Shaw or possible debutant Alex Telles. Rashford fired in the 15th minute, but his ball hit the defense and passed just over the goal.
"[He did some] great defending".
He came on as a substitute as United thrashed Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday and speaking after his side's victory, Solskjaer was asked about the Dutchman's absence from his starting XI. That being said, United still needed to do their job, which they did well. Newcastle United, on the other hand, is in the 11 position. Manchester United are thrilled on the contrary to have won the game before they start their UCL campaign against PSG on 21 October.
