Manchester United got a much-needed win over Newcastle United thanks to a last-minute goal from Alexis Sanchez.
United was down 2-0 within the first 10 minutes but rallied back with strikes from Anthony Martial and Juan Mata.
Another player who was on the pitch was Romelu Lukaku and the Belgian spoke to MUTV after the game.

The Belgian thanked the fans for the support before adding that Sanchez needed that goal. Lukaku said that he wanted to be in the shoes of the Chilean and understood how important the win was for the club.
The former Everton man has just four goals for us this season in all competitions and hasn’t looked great in a number of the games.
The 25-year-old was happy that United were going into the international break with a win, and added that he didn’t like losing.
Lukaku, like most of the United players, has struggled to perform this season and some of the fans weren’t letting him off the hook.
Nah he needs to start shooting practice for the next 2 weeks!!!

Sadly Lukuku is most useless striker in PL, only scores against lowest team and nw that also he cant do. Wish Mou makes him sit and make Sanchez as Striker. Has Lukuku scored against Best teams – HA HA HA.usless he is

How many goals as a striker did he score between the last international window and now?
Prove your worth on the field and stop behaving like a mafia or bouncer.
