Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has hailed Manchester United trio Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata for their performance in Manchester United’s 4-1 victory over Newcastle United.
Manchester United bounced back from our embarrassing defeat to Tottenham Hotspur before the international break with a 4-1 win at St James’ Park on Saturday.
Shearer said on Match of the Day: “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves credit for changing the team. That team needed to be changed after their last performance and they played very well.
“They battered Newcastle. I thought Fernandes and Mata were so clever. They stood in those little pockets, in those holes, and Newcastle couldn’t handle it.
“They were just too good on the ball and showed so much creativity. Those two on the ball, they can punish teams and they caused problems all evening.
“Rashford was excellent as well with his goal and two assists. The weight of passing from United was brilliant.
“You have to say well done to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the debacle against Tottenham.”
