Manchester United 4-1 Newcastle: Paul Pogba stars on return from injury

first_img But Pogba’s feathery cross teed up Anthony Martial to head in a 37th-minute equaliser and after Chris Smalling had headed the hosts in front, Pogba tapped in Marcus Rashford’s cushioned header early in the second half. AFP At Leicester, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne struck fine goals as ruthless Manchester City registered a 16th successive victory in all competitions. Upd. at 21:14 Romelu Lukaku added a fourth, swapping passes with Juan Mata and thrashing home to end a seven-game goal drought. City captain Vincent Kompany made his first league start since August following his latest calf injury. James McArthur’s opener after 51 seconds was cancelled out by a Leighton Baines penalty and although Wilfried Zaha restored Palace’s lead, Oumar Niasse levelled again on the cusp of half-time. A slip by Victor Lindelof enabled Dwight Gayle to put Newcastle ahead in the 14th minute with the first league goal United had conceded at Old Trafford since April. IN SPORT.ES “We can only play Manchester City twice in a season,” United manager Mourinho told BT Sport. “They had the urgency, the desire and the focus,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said of his players. United remain second, a point above Chelsea, who climbed above Tottenham into third place courtesy of a 4-0 success at West Bromwich Albion. “In those games, we will try to take points. Outside of those fixtures, we are not in control.” But in a major blow for the visitors, Guardiola said fellow centre-back John Stones was facing “four to six weeks” out after being forced off in the first half with a hamstring problem. El United golea en el retorno de Ibra y Pogba Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah scored two first-half goals — the first a magnificent curler — to become the Premier League’s leading scorer on nine goals, with Philippe Coutinho adding a third. Quick-fire first-half goals by Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez earned Arsenal a richly deserved victory over arch rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium. Paul Pogba marked his comeback with a goal and an assist as Manchester United fought back to beat Newcastle United 4-1 on Saturday and stay on Manchester City’s tail. Bottom club Crystal Palace were twice pegged back in a lively 2-2 home draw with Everton, for whom David Unsworth remains in charge on a caretaker basis. Jesus finished off a slick move shortly before half-time and De Bruyne made it 2-0 early in the second half with a blistering left-foot shot into the top-left corner.center_img Sidelined since mid-September with a hamstring injury, France midfielder Pogba made a decisive return as Jose Mourinho’s side restored the eight-point gap that separates them from Premier League leaders City. Eden Hazard scored twice and had a hand in Alvaro Morata’s 17th-minute opener, with Marcos Alonso also on target. CET Ibra fue muy ovacionado al entrar por Martial | AFP “It is complicated to defend against Leicester, but we did really well. We did not concede one chance in 90 minutes,” Guardiola told the BBC. Chelsea piled the pressure on West Brom manager Tony Pulis with a breezy 4-0 win at The Hawthorns, where Antonio Conte’s side secured the title last season. “In a derby like that, that plays a part. We didn’t lose the defensive focus for 90 minutes.” 18/11/2017 Callum Wilson netted a hat-trick and Harry Arter also found the net as Bournemouth belied the dismissal of defender Simon Francis to beat Huddersfield Town 4-0 and move clear of the relegation zone. “The return of the injured players was nice, especially in Zlatan’s case, after such a dramatic injury,” said Mourinho. “To see him back was a great emotion.” “I’m disappointed because the small details were against us, which makes it difficult to win,” Pochettino told Sky Sports. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino felt, with justification, that the free-kick that led to Mustafi’s goal should not have been awarded and that Mustafi had been offside from Mesut Ozil’s cross. Liverpool remain fifth, above sixth-place Arsenal on goal difference, after a routine 3-0 home win over Southampton at Anfield. “We continue with our good rhythm in terms of points and the way we play.” High-flying Burnley also sit on 22 points after Jack Cork and Ashley Barnes scored in a 2-0 home win over second-bottom Swansea City. – Salah top scorer – In addition to Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic received a rapturous reception from United’s fans when he came on as a substitute following his recovery from a serious knee injury. Pep Guardiola’s City had earlier prevailed 2-0 at Leicester City and there were also wins for champions Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the north London derby.last_img read more
