Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes has praised the impact of Marcus Rashford in the dominant win over Newcastle United on Saturday night.
The Red Devils were missing the services of French international Anthony Martial for the Magpies game at the St. James Park after his red card in the last Premier League game.
England international Marcus Rashford started upfront for the Old Trafford outfit in place of the suspended Martial.
Martial was sent off in the first half of the last match at home to Tottenham Hotspur after the Frenchman retaliated to a soft slap from Erik Lamela.

Before the incident with the Tottenham Hotspur winger Lamela, Martial and Manchester United were trailing Spurs 2-1 despite taking the lead. Manchester United went on to concede four more goals with two goals coming on either side of the half-time interval.
On Rashford, Bruno Fernandes praised him as he said that the England international was the brain behind the victory over Newcastle United.
The hosts had taken a surprising lead as early as the second minute through a Luke Shaw own goal before Manchester United bounced back to restore parity with a first-half header from Harry Maguire.
Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and the aforementioned Rashford scored three late goals to seal a 4-1 victory for the visitors.
