Match preview

With these two just one point and one place apart in the Premier League table, this one might be tougher to call then at first one might would assume.

Newcastle United supporters will travel down the A1 full of confidence, having seen their side smash Brentford 5-1 last weekend.

Bruno Guimarães putting on a midfield masterclass, scoring twice, with Jacob Murphy and Miguel Almirón also both on target.

Having thumped Fulham 4-1 the previous week, the Magpies have scored 4+ in back-to-back top-flight games for the first time since September 2001, that under Sir Booby Robson.

Right now, Eddie Howe’s team have rocketed up to sixth, with fans dreaming of European football next season.

Manchester United meanwhile were in Europa League action as recently as Thursday night, but it wasn’t exactly that’ll live long in the memory for most present at the Theatre of Dreams.

The Red Devils were frustrated for so long, with Scott McTominay slotting home a 93rd minute winner against Omonia.

They remain second in Group E, needing to beat Sheriff at home and then Real Sociedad away to take top spot.

Back in the Premier League, Erik ten Hag’s team, the demolition derby aside, are in terrific form, winning five of their last six.

Last Sunday, Man Untied beat Everton at Goodison; Antony equalising, before Cristiano Ronaldo won it with his 700th club goal.

This week, they host Tottenham on Wednesday and then travel to Chelsea on Saturday, so their new-found form will be sorely put to the test.

Newcastle have lost their last five visits to Old Trafford, winning only once there since 1972, this coming nine years ago.

Will the Toon Army be celebrating a famous win, or will Manchester United start a very tough week with three points?

Manchester United team news

Erik ten Hag named a very strong side against Omonia on Thursday, which was a surprise given the huge games they have just around the corner.

Luke Shaw and Christian Eriksen are both likely to come back into the XI, displacing Tyrell Malacia and Fred.

At centre-back, with Harry Maguire injured and Raphaël Varane only just fit again, Victor Lindelöf is set to continue as Lisandro Martínez’s partner.

Thursday night’s match-winner Scott McTominay is suspended due to yellow card accumulation; Diogo Dalot is one booking away from a ban of his own.

Antony has scored in all three Premier League appearances so far, looking to keep the streak going.

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 817 senior goals for club and country, eight of which have come against Newcastle, including two in his Old Trafford return 13 months ago.

Newcastle United team news

Allan Saint-Maximin came on for 12 minutes last weekend, appearing for the first time since 28 August due to a hamstring injury.

The French winger could start here, in place of Jacob Murphy, with in-form Miguel Almirón on the other flank.

Through the middle, Callum Wilson will get the chance to add to his one career goal against Man United, with big-money summer signing Alexander Isak sidelined.

In midfield, Joelinton could return alongside Joe Willock and man of the moment Bruno Guimarães.

When Nick Pope last visited Old Trafford, he kept a clean sheet as Burnley won 2-0; could a repeat result be possible?
