After going a goal behind against Newcastle United, Manchester United kept their composure to record a fine 4-1 win.

In doing so the side established a new club record of going 38 games unbeaten at Old Trafford.

As predicted in the pre-match build up, both Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were available for selection, with the former starting and the latter on the bench.

However, matters didn`t start well for Manchester United with Newcastle United taking a surprise lead. The goal came from Dwight Gayle who capitalised on a slip by Victor Lindelof who failed to deal with a cut-back from DeAndre Yedlin.

Matters could have got worse for Manchester United when Jacob Murphy went close. But with half-time approaching Manchester United found their form with two goals in as little as eight minutes.

The equaliser came from Anthony Martial who headed home a cross from Pogba, before, on the stroke of half-time, a cross from Ashley Young was headed home by Chris Smalling.

The lead was extended in the second-half when a flowing move involving Juan Mata, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford saw Pogba cap his return from injury with a tap-in from close-range.

The three points were then wrapped up when Lukaku ended his Manchester United goal drought by scoring the fourth.

The biggest cheer of the day though came when Ibrahimovic was brought on, as a substitute, fourteen minutes from time.

United with all the big-guns fit, are now looking like a well-oiled machine.
