Nigerians have hailed Manchester United players for their second half performance that helped secure a dramatic 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle United on Saturday.

Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto sent Rafael Benitez's side into cloud nine with their efforts in the first 10 minutes of encounter.

Despite the players' disappointing showings in the first 45 minutes, Jose Mourinho's men have been commended for redeeming themselves.
