Solskjaer outlines plans for Cristiano Ronaldo vs Newcastle & gives Man United injury update

Man United vs Newcastle

Manchester United are set to play host to Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon in a 3 pm kick-off.

The Red Devils will start the weekend’s action sat 3rd in the Premier League table having picked up seven points from a possible nine.

United began their season by smashing Leeds 5-1 at Old Trafford. They would then draw with Southampton before picking up a 1-0 win over Wolves right before the international break.

They are now set to face off with a Newcastle side who are still searching for their first win of the season and have picked up just one point in the league.

As a result, a win for Man United is looking very likely, especially if we see new signing Cristiano Ronaldo make his second Manchester United debut over the weekend.

Solskjaer on Ronaldo & injuries

Before facing Newcastle, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke to the press on Friday.

When doing so, the Norwegian discussed a number of topics, including Ronaldo.

During the press conference, Solkajer outlined his plans for Ronaldo vs Newcastle, confirming that the forward will get on the pitch at some point on Saturday:

“He will get on the pitch at some point (tomorrow) that’s for sure. Cristiano and Raphael comes in and there is no place to hide with winners like that. You can’t give 95% in training when you have winners like them.”

Solskjaer also provided injury updates on several players, including Scott McTominay and Jadon Sancho:

“Henderson has not got the tiredness anymore. Telles not 100% yet, still a few weeks. Scott McTominay recovered very quickly. He probably won’t be available. Jadon has come back with a minor knock but has trained last couple of days and is available.”
