Manchester United have extended their winning streak to four in as many games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after they recorded a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at St James' Park on Wednesday.

Solskjaer's substitutes made the difference as Romelu Lukaku scored within seconds of his introduction and Alexis Sanchez provided a deft assist for Marcus Rashford for the second.

The Red Devils had scored inside 10 minutes in two of their previous three matches but they were made to wait till the second half this time at St James Park.

The two goals which ensured that the Red Devils clinched a fourth win in as many games has also made Solskjaer join United’s iconic former leader Busby as the only other manager in the club’s proud history to have started his career with four wins.

Chelsea's slip-up at home to Southampton also on Wednesday means that United have closed the gap on the top four to six points.
