Newcastle United vs Manchester United Premier League preview
Newcastle offloaded a number of players during the January transfer windows but made one key signing: Islam Slimani on loan from Leicester.
The Algerian never really settled in at the King Power Stadium and will want to make a great first impression on his Newcastle debut.
Slimani signed for the Foxes last summer for £28 million and has scored 8 goals in 35 Premier League games for the 2015/16 champions.
The 29 year old is a doubt for this weekend’s fixture meaning Rafa Benitez will probably start with a similar side to the one who drew to Leicester.

Newcastle United’s defensive fragilities
This season, Jose Mourinho’s team, who are renowned for ‘parking the bus’, score just less than 2 goals per game on average.
Newcastle have kept just one clean sheet in their last 19 matches and are sure to have a torrid time against the likes of Alexis, Lukaku, Martial and Lingard.
Alexis scored his first goal for for United in their 2-0 win against Huddersfield last weekend. The Chilean missed a penalty before slotting home the rebound at Old Trafford.
It was a vital goal for the former Arsenal man as it can often be difficult for players to settle into their new clubs and find themselves on the scoresheet straight away.
Expect Alexis to pay a key role in this weekend’s fixture.Claim a £100 free bet on Newcastle vs Manchester United with Royal Panda
