PLAYER RATINGS: Harry Maguire showed his mettle with fine display and crucial equaliser but Joelinton failed to turn up againJoelinton (3) had little impact on the game before being substituted Captain Maguire (8) delivered perfect riposte to the critics with a fine displayNewcastle keeper Darlow (8) denied Fernandes with a a stunning penalty save

Bruno Fernandes made amends for a penalty miss with a superb finish as Manchester United left it late to surge to victory at Newcastle.

Fernandes capped a superb 86th-minute attack by clipping the ball inside the far post after earlier seeing his spot-kick saved by Karl Darlow, his first miss in a United shirt after 10 successful attempts.

The visitors, who had trailed through Luke Shaw's early own goal and got themselves level courtesy of Harry Maguire's 23rd-minute header, wrapped up a 4-1 win in stoppage time with a rocket from full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and a well-deserved goal for Marcus Rashford.

Sportsmail's Jason Mellor rated the players. 

Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow denied Bruno Fernandes with a a stunning penalty save

Karl Darlow - 8

Little chance with Maguire's header and topped off an impressive night's work with a stunning penalty save from Fernandes.

Emil Krafth - 7

Got forward well to provide the cross for Newcastle's early opener as he continues to win over the doubters with his whole-hearted efforts.

Jamaal Lascelles - 7

Important goal-line clearance to deny Marcus Rashford from the Newcastle skipper who again impressed with his commitment and desire.

Federico Fernandez - 5

Glared accusingly at his team-mate in the aftermath of Maguire's equaliser, but it was the defender who had been easily out-jumped by United's goal-scorer.

Jamal Lewis - 7

Solid again in defence and an ever-willing forward outlet when linking-up with Saint Maximin, the youngster looks very much at home in the top flight.

Joelinton had little impact on the game before being replaced by Fraser in the second-half

Jeff Hendrick - 6

As ever, a willing workhorse in the Newcastle engine room, tigerish in the challenge and intelligent with his distribution

Jonjo Shelvey - 6

Faded after starting well and playing a pivotal role in Newcastle's early opener - a familiar failing for the Jekyll and Hyde midfielder.

Isaac Hayden - 7

Newcastle's Mr Dependable put his foot in when needed, and equally provided the silk when required in another consistent display.

Allan Saint Maximin - 7

United weren't the first - or last - opponents to use distinctly rough-house tactics in a bid to halt the flying Frenchman, with mixed results.

Joelinton - 3

Not the first blink and you'll miss him no-show from the Brazilian who should have the decency to reimburse pay-per-view fans for this lethargic effort.

Callum Wilson - 6

Looked certain to reward a hard-working display by levelling from Saint-Maximin's cross, only to be thwarted by De Gea. 

Subs:  Schar (for Hayden 49) 6, Fraser (for Joelinton 72) 6, Almiron (for Henrick 88)

Subs not used: Gillespie, Carroll, Manquillo, Fraser, Murphy.

Captain Harry Maguire delivered perfect riposte to the critics with a fine display

David De Gea - 7

Hard to fault the Spaniard for Shaw's own goal, the United keeper produced a stunning second-half save to deny Wilson.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka - 6

Had his hands full in dealing with Siant-Maximin on the full-back's 50th appearance for the club but stuck to his task.

Victor Lindelof - 5

Found wanting and out of position for Newcastle's goal, turned too easily in the build-up and slow getting back to cover.

Harry Maguire - 8

A perfect riposte to the critics with a fine display topped-off by a goal against the only Premier League he has scored more than once against.

Luke Shaw - 5

Unfortunate with the early own goal, but Maguire's leveller ensured there was at least a Shaw-shank redemption.

Scott McTominay - 7

Always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to pick up the pieces to keep his side ticking over with his unflustered distribution.

Fred - 5

Failed to exert the influence on proceedings he would have liked before he was withdrawn in favour of Paul Pogba.

Juan Mata - 7

At the hub of most of United's positive work, the Spaniard's set-piece delivery remains a constant threat.

Bruno Fernandes - 6

A rare failure from the spot by the midfielder summed up a night of frustration after an earlier effort was ruled out for offside by VAR.

Daniel James - 5

Many United fans were unhappy the young winger was picked ahead of Donny van de Beek, and he did little to dissuade them of that view.

Marcus Rashford - 7

Caused as many problems for the Newcastle defence as he continues to for Boris Johnson, earning United's ultimately unsuccessful penalty.

Subs: Paul Pogba (for Fred 70) 6, van de Beek (for James 76) 6, Matic (for Mata 90),

Subs not used: Henderson, Bailly, Ighalo, Telles 

Referee: Craig Pawson 6
