Manchester United continued their winning run under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a professional 2-0 win over Newcastle United at St James Park.
Romelu Lukaku made yet another instant impact from the bench to score the opener, before Marcus Rashford doubled the lead for the visitors.
Here are the player ratings from the Premier League encounter:
DAVID DE GEA: 6
Hardly tested by a misfiring Newcastle attack. Finally managed a clean sheet.
ANTONIO VALENCIA: 5
Barely attacked from the right wing, but did his defensive job. Far from the attacking full-back Solskjaer demands.
VICTOR LINDELOF: 8
United’s new rock at the back. Was dominant in the air and composed in possession.
PHIL JONES: 6
Had several nervy moments early in the game, but settled in as the match progressed.
LUKE SHAW: 6
Defended well, but couldn’t attack as much as he has been in recent games.
NEMANJA MATIC: 6
Passed the ball well.
ANDER HERRERA: 6
Wasn’t as involved in the attack as Ole would have liked.
PAUL POGBA: 6
Was kept quiet by Newcastle’s strong midfield pivot. Had a great chance to make it three late in the game, but ended up hitting the side netting.

His strong free-kick led to the opener, as the rebound was slotted in expertly by Lukaku. Scored the second with a calm finish that will make his manager proud. Man of the match.
ROMELU LUKAKU: 8

Offered an attacking outlet after coming on late in the game.
