Alan Shearer praises three Manchester United players after Newcastle win

2 min read

Alan Shearer has hailed three Manchester United players after their emphatic 4-1 win at Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday night.

United came from behind to win thanks to goals from Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford at St James’ Park.

Newcastle legend Shearer was on Match of the Day to analyse the match and was quick to heap praise on the trio of Juan Mata, Fernandes and Rashford for their role in the win.

“From a Manchester United point of view, I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves credit for changing the team. That team had to be changed after the last performance that they had. They did that and they played very well and they absolutely battered Newcastle I thought,” Shearer told the BBC.

“They dominated possession. (Juan) Mata and (Bruno) Fernandes were so clever I thought, because they just went and stood in those little pockets in the holes in front of Newcastle’s back four and Newcastle couldn’t handle that. They were just too good on the ball, they showed a lot of creativity, everything Newcastle didn’t have.

“Brilliant ball in for Harry Maguire from Mata for Maguire to get his goal, but those two on the ball, if you give them the amount of time that Newcastle gave them then they are going to punish you and cause you problems all evening as they did.

“Rashford I thought was excellent too, one goal and two assists. Well done Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after that debacle in the last performance.”
