Manchester United remain at the top of England thanks to the victory. For the time being The Mancunians leader with ten points. United took the league title for the last time in 2013, led by Sir Alex Ferguson and top scorer Robin van Persie.
Ronaldo played a not very striking first half, but in stoppage time the 36-year-old goal-getter was there like the chickens to open the score. The multiple world footballer of the year benefited from lousy goalkeeping by Newcastle goalie Freddie Woodman.
Newcastle quickly bounced back at Old Trafford in the second half. Javier Manquillo produced the equalizer for the guests. After a razor-sharp counter, the Spaniard remained icy cool eye to eye with Spanish goalie David de Gea.
Ronaldo is ready.
Ten minutes later, Ronaldo, the stadium of the club he played for from 2003 to 2009, exploded again. After a nice pass from Luke Shaw, the legendary football player from the island of Madeira didn’t even shoot the ball that well, but goalie Woodman still had to answer.
Fernandes and Van de Beek
The final chord was for another Portuguese. Bruno Fernandes shot devastatingly from about 25 meters. Fernandes left the field for Donny van de Beek in the 85th minute. The Dutchman, who was kept out of the last Orange selection by Louis van Gaal, made his first minutes in the competition this season. Van de Beek was involved in the fourth goal, by Jesse Lingard, in the preliminary phase.
Tottenham Hotspur lost perfect status in the Premier League earlier in the day. Made a visit to fellow townsman Crystal Palace The Spurs a weak impression with a 3-0 defeat as a result.
Tottenham had little to say in the first half in the London derby and could especially thank Hugo Lloris that it went 0-0. The goalkeeper made a crucial save just before the break. The perspective did not improve much after an hour, when Japhet Tanganga received his second yellow card and had to press in.
Hugo Lloris punches the ball away.
Fifteen minutes before the end, things went wrong for the leader after hands by Ben Davies. Wilfried Zaha remained icy calm from eleven meters. Six minutes before the end, debutant Odsonne Edouard closed the game, after which he also signed for the 3-0 in injury time.
Steven Bergwijn was absent from Tottenham Hotspur due to an injury. Last Tuesday, the Orange international immediately got an ice pack on his foot after his substitution against Turkey. Jairo Riedewald remained on the bench for the entire match at Palace.
Chelsea beat Aston Villa and come next to leader Man United
Chelsea have not been surprised by Aston Villa on their own field: 3-0. Romelu Lukaku (two) and Mateo Kovacic scored for the home team. Former Ajax player Hakim Ziyech was a basic player for the home team.
Chelsea tied the score with new league leaders Manchester United, who defeated Newcastle United 4-1. The two unbeaten clubs are on 10 points, with a slightly better goal difference for the Manchester team.
Aston Villa is in twelfth place with 4 points. At the club from Birmingham, attacker Anwar El Ghazi remained on the bench. The Dutch striker was therefore unable to put himself in the spotlight with national coach Louis van Gaal. The foreman of Orange recently let it slip that he will keep an eye on El Ghazi for a possible place in his selection.
