Manchester United got back on track in the Champions League, beating Istanbul Basaksehir 4-1 at Old Trafford to go top of Group H.

Bruno Fernandes scored twice to fire United into an early 2-0 lead, while Marcus Rashford won and scored a penalty to make it 3-0 before the interval.

Basaksehir grabbed a consolation before Daniel James made it four - and the victory was just what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side needed after a shocking 2-1 loss to the Turkish side just before the international break.

That defeat, in which the Red Devils were dreadful defensively, had halted the momentum from opening wins over Paris-Saint Germain and RB Leipzig. But United's win sent them three points clear at the top of the standings and back on track for the knockout stages, with PSG beating Leipzig in the group's other game on Tuesday.

Now, Daily Star Sport has picked out the winners and losers from United's win on Tuesday.

Bruno Fernandes scores United's second goal

Winners

Bruno Fernandes

Fernandes was again the hero for United, firing them into a two-goal lead inside 20 minutes at Old Trafford.

First he slammed in a 20-yard half-volley as Basaksehir tried to clear a United corner.

Then the midfielder doubled his tally with a tap-in after goalkeeper Fehmi Mert Gunok fumbled a cross intended for Edinson Cavani.

Regular penalty taker Fernandes also sportingly turned down the chance for a hat-trick, letting Marcus Rashford take United's spot-kick after the striker was barged over by Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.

It was Fernandes' penalty which earned the Red Devils a 1-0 win over West Brom at the weekend, and the 26-year-old also inspired their victory over Everton in the previous game, as the Portuguese ace continues to star for Solsjaer's side.

Donny van de Beek

Donny van de Beek impressed in midfield

Van de Beek was given a start in place of Nemanja Matic in a more attacking-looking midfield, and he was instrumental in United taking control of the game in the first half.

The summer signing from Ajax moved the ball forward quickly, breaking the lines and providing plenty of service for United's front four.

Van de Beek still hasn't made a Premier League start, but based on this performance it can only be a matter of time before the 23-year-old becomes a regular fixture in Solskjaer's side.

Edinson Cavani

Edinson Cavani was full of running

Cavani finally got his first start for United, and he showed his huge experience as he gave United's attack an added dimension.

It was Cavani's run into the Basaksehir penalty area that caused confusion between keeper Gunok and his defence, leading to Fernandes' second goal which gave United breathing space.

The Uruguayan striker also showed that, at 33, he has still the legs and the work rate to lead the press and be a focal point for United's attack.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer masterminded a win that eases the pressure

The manager has been under pressure this season amid plenty of criticism of United's performances.

But here, his side put in the kind of attacking display you'd expect from United of old at the Theatre of Dreams, with Basaksehir put to the sword.

Solskjaer's decision to give Donny van de Beek a start in midfield was vindicated by an excellent display from the Dutch ace.

And having masterminded a win that takes United to within touching distance of knockout qualification, the manager has eased the pressure ahead of the busy run-in to the Christmas period.

Dan James

Daniel James saw some action but the competition is increasing for a place on the wings

James got on the pitch as Solskjaer took the opportunity to use plenty of subs given United's dominance - and scored a goal that will be a huge boost to his confidence.

Before that he showed flashes of his ability - with one ball to Mason Greenwood in particular catching the eye.

The Wales winger is facing plenty of competition for the wide slots from Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Juan Mata.

And with Cavani playing up front, Antony Martial was moved out wide - in theory making it harder still for James to make his mark.

But late on in the game as United counter-attacked, James ran on to a ball from Greenwood and slotted home United's fourth, which will do him the world of good as he tries to carve out a place in the team going forward.

Loser

Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba was all smiles in training - but Van de Beek's performance could be bad news for the France star

Pogba again missed out through injury after returning from France duty - which the midfielder described as "a breath of fresh air" from his United struggles.

The World Cup winner did train ahead of the game, but was ruled out of the game after experiencing discomfort in his ankle.

Pogba is facing fresh questions over his future at United - and the impressive performance of Van de Beek in midfield will only heighten doubts over how the French star fits in.

Solskjaer is starting to find a role for his £40m summer signing - but the same can't be said of £89m man Pogba at the moment.
