Jose Mourinho’s side scored three times in the final 20 minutes, as goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez eased the pressure on the United boss.

After such a promising start, which saw Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto put the visitors 2-0 up inside 10 minutes, the result will come as a huge blow for Rafa Benitez’s men, and leaves the Magpies 19th in the table with just two points from eight Premier League games.

But there were plenty of impressive individual performances which should encourage the Newcastle boss.
