Manchester United Come From 2-0 Down To Beat Newcastle
Manchester United came from 2-0 down to claim a much-needed victory over Newcastle at Old Trafford.
The hosts were stunned when Newcastle scored twice in 10 minutes through Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto and should have been out of sight in the first half.
But United were much-improved after the interval, displaying a level of intensity and desire that had been lacking for a while now.
They pulled one back through Juan Mata's free-kick in the 70th minute after peppering Martin Dubravka's goal, before Anthony Martial levelled matters following a beautiful one-two with Paul Pogba.
Then, substitute Alexis Sanchez came up with his most important contribution since his underwhelming switch when he popped up in stoppage time to head home his first of the season, but more importantly the winning goal.

This Manchester United return from dead all more remarkable when you realize all 3 goals scored by players Mourinho has, at different times, HUMILIATED. Mata. The Original Scapegoat. Martial, long-running war of attrition. Alexis Sanchez. Most recent Arrival on Mou's Naughty Step- roger bennett (@rogbennett) October 6, 2018
