Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United’s season starts now after “inspirational” captain Harry Maguire led a comeback win at Newcastle.
Maguire cancelled out a Luke Shaw own goal before late strikes from Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford sealed a 4-1 win.
It was the ideal response after losing two of their first three league games, including a 6-1 defeat at Tottenham.
“The season started for us today,” said Solskjaer.
“We have come up to the speed of the game and that showed.”
‘Maguire showed good character’
Maguire has struggled for form following his recent arrest in Greece and endured a particularly bad time on international duty last week, sent off after just 31 error-strewn minutes in the 1-0 defeat by Denmark.
