It would have been much of a disaster if Manchester United had gotten anything less than a win in that game. Although Bruno Fernandes missed his first penalty in a United shirt, that didn't change the bad day Newcastle United had.
Nevertheless, it was a relentless effort on the side of United that saw them overcome a troublesome Newcastle United.
The scoreline spoke for itself, but the most outstanding part of it is the record which could make one ponder, "Can they win the league this season?"
The likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and even Chelsea who were initial favourites have backslide, and this could be a blessing in disguise for Manchester United if they can continue this relentless effort across their upcoming Premier League matches.
In the game against Newcastle, Manchester Utd attempted 14 shots on target against Newcastle, which is the most they have produced in a Premier League game across the last five seasons.
Remarkable! Breaking a bad record after five seasons is a notion what pondering on! This could be their best season in disguise, and at this point in time, no one can rationally predict the team that would win the league.
Hence, Manchester United is amongst the favourites! What's your opinion? Is United bouncing back from the 1-6 defeat or is it a usual display that will see them fall behind again? Let's hear from you.
