All the talk heading into tomorrow’s match between Manchester United and Newcastle will be about the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen to keep his team focused on picking up the three points.
They are facing a Newcastle team who have had a pretty awful start to the season, so the home side will be favourites to secure the victory at Old Trafford.
In terms of team news, United should have Jadon Sancho back in contention, with the 21-year-old having to sit out England’s games due to a knock.
Dean Henderson (virus) and Phil Jones (fitness) are doubts, while Scott McTominay (groin), Marcus Rashford (shoulder), Fred (FIFA ban) and Alex Telles (ankle) are unavailable.
Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Play Newcastle:
De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Fernandes, Pogba, Greenwood, Ronaldo, Sancho
Magpies boss Steve Bruce has confirmed that Miguel Almiron will be available for selection, while Isaac Hayden (knee) and Paul Dummett (calf) are also back in contention.
Karl Darlow (virus) and Ryan Fraser (ankle) remain doubts, with Jonjo Shelvey (calf), Martin Dubravka (ankle), Callum Wilson (muscular) and Elliott Anderson (hip) all ruled out.
Newcastle’s Predicted XI:
Woodman, Murphy, Fernandez, Lascelles, Schar, Ritchie, Willock, Longstaff, Almiron, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin
