Brilliant Falcao assist helps Rooney open the scoring for United

The England striker later added a second for his side against Newcaste.

AN INTELLIGENT ASSIST from Radamel Falcao helped Wayne Rooney get Man United off the mark against Newcastle today.

A through pass from Juan Mata then allowed Rooney to finish coolly for his second of the afternoon to put the Red Devils 2-0 ahead at the break.

Robin van Persie scored United’s third in the second half, before Papiss Cissé got a late consolation for the Magpies.
