Wayne Rooney returned to the starting lineup, as Manchester United defeated Newcastle, 2-1, at Old Trafford.
Rooney had been out of action since suffering a gash to his right leg in United's victory over Fulham on Aug. 25. The 26-year-old forward did not score and was substituted out for Nick Powell in the 76th minute.
Anderson opened the scoring for United in the 44th minute, cutting across the field from the right and powering a shot off the near post and into Newcastle's net.
Tom Cleverley, who had missed a clear chance in the first half, made it 2-0 in the 58th minute. It was his first goal for the club.
Papiss Cisse pulled one back for Newcastle with a header in the 62nd minute, just one minute after entering the match. He had a chance for a late equalizer, but his overhead kick bounced off the bar.
