Match Summary: A returning Paul Pogba inspired United who in need to come from behind to beat Newcastle 4-1 at Old Trafford, after falling behind to an early Dwight Gayle strike but the Frenchman then set up Anthony Martial's leveller with Chris Smalling turning it around right before half-time by heading home Ashley Young's cross. Pogba scored with a tap-in early of 2nd-period while the Reds' 4th goal was smashed in late on by Romelu Lukaku who had 1st chance of the game when he latched onto Antonio Valencia's front-post cross but fired over from 5 yards. DeAndre Yedlin then beat Young to the byline before he pulled the ball back for who capitalised on a Victor Lindelof slip to fire it past David De Gea via the post with Yedlin nearly doubled the visitors' lead 5 mins later but dragged his effort wide of the far post. That seemed to wake Jose Mourinho's men up with Lukaku heading Lindelof's expert long ball over the bar and United were soon back on level terms when Martial headed past the Magpies goalkeeper Rob Elliot at the back post after fantastic skill and a stand-up cross by Pogba for his 7th of season.

Lukaku then had a shout for a penalty being waved away but from the next attack, the Reds turned it around when Young whipped in a cross which was met by the towering leap of Smalling who headed home his 1st goal of the season via the outstretched leg of Elliot while Newcastle were close to draw level secs later as Isaac Hayden's shot was saved by De Gea before Matt Ritchie's rebound deflected off Gayle and it evaded the post. United started 2nd half a lot brighter than the 1st and did not take long to end the game as a contest when Lukaku was free down the left and he crossed for Marcus Rashford, who in turn headed across goal for United's no.6 to tap home from a couple of yards out.

Pogba grabbed the goal his performance deserved.
Lukaku so nearly played in Rashford for the fourth but his pass was too strong, as the Reds brimmed with confidence. Newcastle did threaten at the other end as Murphy's 35-yard curler was brilliantly tipped over by De Gea.

Pogba, who was given a standing ovation as he left the field on 70 minutes, watched on as Lukaku re-discovered his goalscoring touch for United. The Belgian, fresh from becoming Belgium's all-time record scorer, cut inside and played a neat one-two with Juan Mata, before smashing past Elliot into the roof of the net.

A second standing ovation of the night was given to United's new no.10, Ibrahimovic, who replaced Martial in the final quarter-hour. The big Swede's every touch was rejoiced as he looked to pick up where Pogba left off and so nearly got in on the act with an acrobatic bicycle kick, which Elliot tipped wide.

It was a near-perfect night for Mourinho and United, who are now unbeaten in 37 consecutive fixtures at Old Trafford, but it's the returning Pogba who will grab the headlines.
