Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire are the two Manchester United players to feature in WhoScored’s Premier League Team of the Week after a 3-1 win over Newcastle United.
Maguire may have been at fault for Allan Saint-Maximin’s goal but he has a 7.72 rating from WhoScored’s stat machine.
The skipper was credited with an assist for Rashford and won six aerial duels against Steve Bruce’s side.
Rashford, on the other hand, got on the scoresheet which will always do his match rating favours.
He put United ahead in the first half and his dribbling caused problems for the Magpies.

United’s upcoming opponents in the league haven’t got a single player in the TOTW. They drew 1-1 with Southampton before beating La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid away from home in the Champions League last night.
Paul Scholes has already previewed the game at Stamford Bridge and it would be fair to say he fancies our chances on the road, with Chelsea appearing “toothless” in the final third.
