Rashford got the nod to replace Anthony Martial down the middle, with Daniel James and Mata flanking the England international. At the back, Victor Lindelof replaced Eric Bailly but commander Maguire shrugged off a glute issue to wear the armband.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka made his 50th facade for the bludgeon since arriving from Crystal Palace and glaring it with a occasional goal. The right-backs mis-directed tetchy forced evasive feat from Darlow in the first half, with the home keeper stretching to claw it away from the net. Darlow had no chance towards the final though when Aaron slammed in the third to achieve off the document in professional football in some style.
There was gossip Maguire would be left out, after being sent off for England against Denmark in midweek, and sustaining a clink beforehand. Instead, the centre-back showed his mettle by heading in the equaliser. It may keep been his peak in the Premier League since February, at Chelsea, but he was unlucky when Lewis Dunk was instead deemed to retain put through his obtain collar at Brighton & Hove Albion, below Harrys strong challenge.

Harry besides had an effort cleared off the chain by Jonjo Shelvey and fired proper comprehensive after the break.
Juan has a fine catalogue censure Newcastle, certainly he has been directly involved in other goals condemn them (nine) than any fresh brace in the Premier League. The crevice for Maguires header was his fifth assist and he has scored four times castigate the Tynesiders. After his Carabao Cup exploits, Septembers Player of the Month now has two goals and two assists this call and he was worthy throughout on Saturday evening.
It is laborious to know which was the ameliorate save. David De Geas incredible annihilate from Callum Wilsons prod goalwards, which looked all the world like a goal, or Darlows rejection of Bruno from the penalty spot. After 10 out of 10 spot-kicks for the Reds, there was not a lot of wrong with Fernandess effort from 12 yards but the in-form Magpies person Darlow, who only got his transpire due to an injury to Martin Dubravka, pulled off a exceptional save. Our no.1 further did well to decline a Shelvey stinger sequential in the second half.
The winner was classic United, four minutes from time. Rashford timed his pass to perfection and Fernandes did the halt with the most emphatic of finishes. He then racked up another assist when setting Rashford up at the death. It method the Portugal international has been directly involved in 20 goals in 18 Premier League appearances (11 goals, 9 assists). Only ex-Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips had a workman in supplementary in that time-frame (21).
