Man U is propelled into the top four by Marcus Rashford

In Wednesday's 1-0 win over Brentford, scored by Marcus Rashford, Manchester United moved back into the top four of the Premier League. Meanwhile, Newcastle United held on to third place with a 5-1 victory over West Ham United.

The Magpies, who are still ahead of United in goal difference, were led by Callum Wilson and Joelinton, who each scored twice.

In the race for a spot in the Champions League the following season, both teams now hold a three-point advantage over Tottenham and a game advantage over Spurs.

After going three league games without a win and playing in cups, United had not won the Premier League since the middle of February. As a result, they had dropped to fifth place.

After a humiliating 4-0 defeat against the Bees in their previous meeting in August, Erik ten Hag's team also had to settle a score with them.
