Man Utd ace Fernandes: None of us knew Wan-Bissaka could shoot!

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes says the players are delighted for Aaron Wan-Bissaka after victory at Newcastle United.

"All of a sudden, they've broken on you and they're arguably as good as anybody playing on the counter-attack with what they've got and we were caught, which is the disappointing thing".

Their manager O. Solskjaer went with a formation of 4-2-3-1 with Rashford as the sole striker.

Manchester United kicked off as the referee blew the whistle.

United came back and scored a third goal in the 90th minute, after another make for Rashford.

However, they left it late by scoring three late goals. So, the goal was disallowed, and United was still looking for a goal.

United captain Harry Maguire equalized in the 23rd minute to help the visitors back into the game. With that, the score at half-time was 1-1.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were afforded the chance to go ahead early in the second half, the Old Trafford outfit awarded what looked like a very soft penalty following a perceived foul on Marcus Rashford.

Even after Harry Maguire had levelled with a thumping 23rd-minute header as he put his own hard spell behind him with an assured display, the visitors were repeatedly frustrated by Magpies keeper Karl Darlow, who made a fine 58th-minute penalty save from Fernandes.

Newcastle also received the boost of Allan Saint-Maximin signing a new six-year contract this week, and he will likely drift to United's left flank to test Luke Shaw or possible debutant Alex Telles.

In the end, we rediscovered our shooting boots late on as we scored thrice towards the end to win the game 4-1. It was a great through ball kept by Fernandes as Rashford rushed past the Newcastle defenders before curling the ball into the back of the net.

Now, Manchester United are in the 14 place as they have won and lost 2 matches each.

On the other hand, David Moyes paid Ryan Fraser instead of Guillinton in the 73rd minute.

However, speaking after the match, Solskajer sought to give an insight into his selection, insisting he can only pick 11 players in a match. In contrast, Newcastle United will be up against Wolves on the 25 of October.
