Another massive 3 points for Manchester United who remain unbeaten in the Premier League under Ole Gunnar Solksjear. A brace from Lukaku saw United leaving on the front foot before Ward gave the host a goal back. In the closing 10 minutes of the match, Young gave United their 2 goal cushion back. 

It was also a big night for 17 year old James Garner who got his first team debut and was able to play 5 minutes. 

Next up United will play Southampton at home on 2 March 2019.
