Breaking News ! Steve Bruce and his Newcastle United team left themselves open to criticism after paying Manchester United too much respect at St James' Park. With the Red Devils arriving on Tyneside with their confidence still bruised by the 6-1 battering against Spurs before the international break this was a great time to play them. To add to that England international Harry Maguire was surely a prime target to run at chip away at his frail confidence? With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fighting for his job, Newcastle should have piled on the agony here and got Allan Saint-Maximin on the ball.

Here, Newcastle afforded their visitors room and space to rekindle their confidence as they chalked up 28 attempts at goal and missed a penalty! The fact that Bruce's side scored first was merely a statistic. The Magpies grabbed the lead in the second minute after Man United lost possession from a throw-in. Allan Saint-Maximin broke down the left-hand side before slipping Jonjo Shelvey who then rolled the ball into the path of Emil Krafth with his cross taking a deflection from Luke Shaw and looping past David De Gea. The Red Devils tried to respond quickly but two Marcus Rashford efforts did not trouble Karl Darlow at the Gallowgate End. Man United thought they had levelled the game up on 20 minutes when Daniel James and Bruno Fernandes combined with the former Sporting Lisbon star slamming it past Darlow. But after a VAR check the goal was chalked off as Juan Mata was deemed offside. Jonjo Shelvey should have done better mid-way through the first half but his close range effort was hit straight at the keeper. Newcastle's luck ran out after Darlow parried away a Fernandes shot to concede a corner. The ball was swirled in by Mata and under fire Harry Maguire rose to head home the equaliser. Bruce's side tried to respond just after the half-hour mark when Saint-Maximin struck a venomous effort from long range but De Gea palmed it to safety. Darlow made a fine save again when he palmed Aaron Wan-Bissaka's swerving effort away from the right-hand side on 36 minutes. The resultant corner forced a scramble in the box but Jamaal Lascelles booted clear off the line after Rashford went for goal. Rashford then tried a powerful low drive just before the break but Darlow made a superb stop low down.

. Bruce was forced into a change just three minutes into the second half when Isaac Hayden went off with a knock. With 51 minutes played, Saint-Maximin dropped his shoulder and crossed into the box to pick out Callum Wilson but De Gea somehow managed to claw his shot off the line to make a remarkable save. Six minutes later, United thought they had a chance to test Man United with a free-kick down the left. But ref Craig Pawson was alerted to a previous foul from Jamal Lewis on Rashford in the box. After a VAR check and a pitchside monitor check Pawson pointed to the spot.

Newcastle threatened again mid-way through the second half when Shelvey's thumping effort was beaten away by De Gea before Schar eventually followed up and fired it over the top. Man United introduced France star Paul Pogba immediately after those opportunities with Fred replaced. Darlow struggled through the closing stages after a collision with Rashford with sub keeper Mark Gillespie told to be prepared. The former Nottingham Forest keeper battled through though but was picking the ball out of his net with four minutes to go. Rashford delayed his pass down the right to slip in Fernandes who shrugged off his penalty miss to rocket a shot beyond Darlow and into the net. Bruce left it too late to introduce Almiron for Hendrick - who had struggled badly throughout - and Man United capped their win when Donny van de Beek played in Wan-Bissaka who fired in number three. The door had been left ajar for Man United for long periods of this game and the only surprise was it took them so long to take advantage. To rub salt into the wounds, Fernandes sent Rashford clear before he extended the lead to 4-1. Newcastle left the field with their heads bowed and despite a solid start to the season they now go back to the drawing board.
