Why Christian Eriksen is missing & Rashford is benched for Manchester United vs Newcastle

Manchester United face off with Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.


Manchester United are set to take on Newcastle United at 2 pm UK time on Sunday in a Premier League clash.

The Red Devils head into the game in good form, having won four of their last five league matches.

That form sees United sitting 5th in the Premier League ahead of kick-off on Sunday.

A win over Newcastle would see them possibly climb above Chelsea and move to within five points off 4th-place Tottenham with a game in hand.

Newcastle, though, are in good form themselves, having lost just one of their last five. The Magpies are 6th in the Premier League but have to face Manchester United without Joe Willock and Alexsandr Isak.
