United, the first of the rest of the Premier

Manchester United did not fail and regained their second place in the Premier League, after beating Newcastle in a match in which Bruno Fernandes shone again.


Manchester United are second-placed in the Premier League. It is thanks to a suffered victory at Old Trafford (3-1) against a team, Newcastle United, which is struggling to stay away from relegation places. It is also, thanks to a goal by Daniel James that counteracted the draw that Saint-Maximin had previously achieved, and which Bruno later sentenced. It is thanks to many things, and despite many others, but it is second and it was a long time since the red devils were so consolidated in the upper part in the month of February.

The perfect week for Manchester United, after the win against Real Sociedad in the Europa League, has been confirmed in the league. Rashford opened the can with a trademark move: he entered the left wing, looked diagonally into the area and fired with his right hand, at the short post, surprising Darlow. However, Newcastle knew how to rebuild and scared De Gea, who could not stop Saint-Maximin's close shot.

There is always a moment in United games when Bruno Fernandes appears. Either with a goal or with a key pass, and this time it was both ways. The Portuguese has already gone to 22 goals this season and is the second player to reach a double-double in the Premier League after Harry Kane (Bruno has 15 goals and 10 assists). First he brushed against a cross ball so that it fell at the feet of James, who started and scored for the third consecutive game (he has five this season), and then he converted a penalty that Rashford caused and made the final 3-1 to leave those of Solskjaer as the best team of the rest of the clubs that chase, without success, 10 points, to Manchester City. In the last moments the debut of the very young Shola Shoretire, only 17 years old, took place after having signed his first professional contract with the Red Devils.
