If Manchester United ran a competition to predict their team against Newcastle none of the estimated 1.1 billion fans would have guessed it.

As a United fan on Twitter - minus the expletives - put it,: "What's the point of signing a player and then not playing him after you've been smashed 6-1 in your last game?"

There were agreeable alterations (Paul Pogba dropped), disagreeable decisions (Donny van de Beek on the bench) and mind-boggling picks (Daniel James).

His absence was offset by another elegant performance from Juan Mata, who brought the United substitutes to their feet upon his removal in added time.

He recovered with just his second non-dead ball goal for United to deflate Newcastle and then their dam burst.

Marcus Rashford, the lone frontman for the first time since Newcastle away last year, provided a commendable presence despite his entitled demands of referee Craig Pawson and Mata and Bruno Fernandes dovetailed elegantly.

His leadership and leveller vindicated his manager's faith and the United captain had a second-half header smuggled off the line.
