Manchester United vs Newcastle premier league match highlight

Manchester United vs Newcastle premier league match highlight

Paul Pogba marked his return from injury with a goal and an assist and Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his comeback as Manchester United turned around a first-half deficit to record a convincing 4-1 Premier League win over Newcastle United.

Frenchman Pogba teed up compatriot Anthony Martial for the equaliser before tapping in a third, helping Jose Mourinho's side overcome Dwight Gayle's 14th-minute opener to stretch their unbeaten run at home to 38 games.

Chris Smalling had nodded the hosts ahead in first-half stoppage time while Romelu Lukaku ended his personal drought after the break, the Belgian striker smashing in his first club goal since September 30.

Mourinho allowed Ibrahimovic a late cameo off the bench, the Swede making his first appearance in 216 days since suffering a serious knee injury in April.

The result sees United reclaim second place from Chelsea and remain on the coat-tails of pacesetters Manchester City, who won 2-0 at Leicester City earlier on Saturday to lead their neighbours by eight points.

Liverpool vs Southampton premier league match highlight

Liverpool defeated Southampton 3-0 in the Premier League to seize on Tottenham's north London derby defeat, as Mohamed Salah broke a Robbie Fowler record and Philippe Coutinho shone on his return to the starting XI.

Egypt international Salah struck twice in the space of 10 first-half minutes to put the hosts firmly in charge against the lacklustre Saints.

The ex-Chelsea attacker's exploits have helped to disguise the defensive failings of Jurgen Klopp's side, although they were not at risk of being exposed by the toothless away team at Anfield on Saturday.

Coutinho, named in the side from kick-off after recovering from a thigh injury, set up Salah's second and scored the third himself in a performance that demonstrated the continuing importance of a player targeted heavily by Barcelona in the off-season.

And the victory, Liverpool's fourth in succession in all competitions, means they are just one point behind fourth-placed Champions League qualification rivals Spurs, who lost 2-0 at neighbours Arsenal earlier in the day, as Klopp's attention turns to the crunch away match against Sevilla on Tuesday.

Manchester City's unstoppable march at the Premier League summit shows no signs of slowing down as goals from Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne secured a 2-0 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Pep Guardiola's side have been in irresistible form so far this season and Saturday's result moved them nine points clear of second-placed Chelsea, with rivals United playing later in the day and Tottenham having lost at Arsenal.

Jesus gave City the lead a minute before the half-time break with a simple tap-in after a move that had sliced open the hosts' defence.

De Bruyne then doubled their advantage just three minutes into the second period as he thumped home from 25 yards for his third league goal of a sparkling campaign.

The only blot on City's copybook was the enforced first-half withdrawal of England defender John Stones, who pulled up holding his right hamstring.

Arsenal vs Tottenham premier league match highlight

Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez proved amid the uncertainty over their futures that they remain Arsenal's star performers with match-winning displays in Saturday's 2-0 victory over rivals Tottenham.

The build-up to the derby clash had focused largely on the supposed power shift in north London as Mauricio Pochettino has turned Spurs into Premier League title challengers, but their ability to take the fight to Manchester City may have been ended following a tame reverse at the Emirates Stadium.

Ozil was at his creative best, delivering a teasing free-kick for Shkodran Mustafi to head in the opener, before his link-up play helped set up Sanchez's strike just before half-time.

Both Ozil and Sanchez have been linked with January departures, with Arsenal facing losing them on a free in June, but their desire could not be questioned in a contest that they dominated between them.

Pochettino had Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris at his disposal after the trio missed international duty over the break, but Spurs' chances were few and far between as Kane especially delivered a sluggish performance.

West Brom vs Chelsea premier league match highlight

Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata ran riot as Chelsea outclassed West Brom 4-0 at the Hawthorns to turn up the heat on Tony Pulis.

As Antonio Conte celebrated his 50th Premier League match in style, the contrast to his opposite number in the dugout could not have been greater, as Pulis' side never came close to avoiding a fourth consecutive defeat.

Conte kept David Luiz to the bench on his return to the squad but the visitors hardly needed defensive reinforcement in cruising to their 10th win in 12 league away games.

On the ground where they sealed last season's title, Chelsea raced to a two-goal lead inside 23 minutes as Morata and Hazard exchanged assists for their quickfire goals.

It was all too easy for Marcos Alonso as he added a third from Cesc Fabregas' set-piece in the 38th minute and the champions remained in cruise control until Hazard completed his brace with a well-taken second just beyond the hour.

The victory sees Conte's men at least momentarily move into second, but the pressure on Pulis will only intensify with the Baggies now winless in all competitions since August.

Argentina vs Nigeria Friendly match highlight

Argentina vs Nigeria Friendly match highlight

Alex Iwobi scored twice as Nigeria fought back from 2-0 down against an Argentina side missing Lionel Messi to secure a stunning 4-2 friendly victory in Krasnodar.

Sergio Aguero scored his 36th international goal to move clear in third place on Argentina's all-time scoring list as Jorge Sampaoli's side looked set to prosper despite the absence of Messi, who had returned to Barcelona after featuring in the 1-0 win over Russia on Saturday.

Having drawn level with Hernan Crespo by scoring a late winner against the Russians, Aguero followed up his first international goal since June 2016 by tapping home Argentina's second to back up Ever Banega's free-kick opener.

Yet their comfortable cushion evaporated either side of the interval, with Kelechi Iheanacho inspiring a Nigeria fightback with a free-kick of his own in the closing stages of the first half.

Two goals in the space of three second-half minutes from Iwobi and Bryan Idowu swung the game further away from Argentina, with the former then slotting home a fourth to secure Nigeria just their second ever win over their South American opponents.

Cristiano Ronaldo has taken to Instagram to announce the latest addition to his family.

The Real Madrid superstar has posted a photo of himself, girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and his son Cristiano Jr., along with his newborn daughter Alana Martina.

It has been a busy six months for the family as they previously announced this past summer the arrival of twins, a boy and girl named Mateo and Eva, via a surrogate.

Ronaldo missed the birth of the twins while away on international duty with Portugal for the Confederations Cup, but there were no such conflicts this time around as he was rested for Portugal's November friendlies against Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Alana Martina, who the star announced the name of a few weeks ago, is Ronaldo's second daughter and fourth child.
