Manchester United 3-1 Newcastle United: James strike sets Solskjaer’s side on course

London, February 22: Daniel James repaid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s faith with another goal in Manchester United’s 3-1 Premier League win at home to Newcastle United. James had netted in United’s victories against Southampton and Real Sociedad – his most recent two appearances – and kept his place in the XI for Sunday’s game. It was a decision that worked for Solskjaer, who needed someone to step up in a stuttering second half at Old Trafford after Allan Saint-Maximin had cancelled out Marcus Rashford’s strike.

James lashed in just before the hour mark and set the stage for a more straightforward finale in which Bruno Fernandes added a third from the penalty spot to ensure United would lose no more ground on Manchester City, who are still 10 points ahead as clear title favourites.
