Both teams had a good start to the game, but Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s men had the edge.

It was Ronaldo who nestled in the ball from close range after Woodman, the visitor’s goalkeeper, couldn’t retain hold of Mason Greenwood’s shot.

However, United were dealt a blow when they returned from half-time, as Newcastle had equalised through full-back Manquillo.
After being fed by Luke Shaw, the 36-year-old Ronaldo scored past Woodman to give his team the lead.
