Joshua King marked the first goal of the encounter in the 49th minutes after connecting with Charlie Daniels’ pass.

And Niasse who replaced injured Wayne Rooney in the 55th minutes soon announced his presence when he fired home in the 77th minutes to restore parity to his side.

The former Hull City player completed his brace eight minutes before the full time with another strike to hand Ronald Koeman’s side their second victory in the English elite this term.
