Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo scored the first two goals for Man United in the first 15 minutes of the game. Antony and Dalot were the assisters for the two goalscorer players who took first-time shots in the box. Fernades took a great shot in the bottom corner. Mainoo's goal sneaks into the bottom left corner of the net and United looked to dominate the rest of the game.

Newport would respond with a half-volley strike that has a deflection from Lisandro Martinez, which goes past Altay Bayindir. Newport was not done there, as they equalized early in the second half. Will Evans poked the ball toward the net, and with a touch of Varane, the ball went in. Evans turned professional just two years ago, and Newport County is the first lower league team to score two past Man United since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
