Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has admitted that the club's players have been asking questions of themselves after their 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils were thrashed by Spurs before the international break but they have bounced back with a 4-1 win over Newcastle United.

Luke Shaw scored an early own goal before Maguire headed home an equaliser.

Talisman Bruno Fernandes had a strike ruled out by VAR and then missed a penalty, before a late glut of goals saw United emerge clear winners.

Goals from Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford in the last ten minutes earned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 's side all three points.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has given a frank assessment of the club's start to the season after they beat Newcastle 4-1

Reflecting on the win, captain Maguire was asked if the players had been questioning themselves before the game as a result of the Spurs loss.

Maguire responded: "For sure. When you play for this club and you get beaten at home by Crystal Palace and thoroughly deserve to get beaten and play Tottenham and deserve to get beaten, we ask questions.

"We work hard in training, it's a great group. We knew we had to bounce back.

"It was a big game because although we are three games into the season we came here and knew we had to get points on the board. I felt it would've been really harsh if we'd just come away with a point, especially having shown great character.

"Because we're under pressure and we've had a lot of criticism so to concede a goal like we did in the first minute is really tough to take.

"Great character shown by the lads and a thoroughly deserved win."

When asked if he felt they had answered their critics, Maguire said: "There's some way going towards that but I wouldn't say we've answered them. It's crazy because we're three games into the season and it seems like a big criss.

"This is our fourth game of the season. Won two, lost two. We've put in two terrible performances, we know we can do a lot better. This club doesn't deserve performances like we've put in at Old Trafford this season.

"We've gone a part of answering our critics but there's still a long way to go. It's a long season, a lot to improve, but we've got the three points tonight."
