Manchester United vs. Newcastle United: Premier League – Match Preview

Cristiano Ronaldo will make his second debut for Manchester United on Saturday when they host Newcastle United.

Manchester United edged past Wolves prior to the international break, thanks to a late Mason Greenwood winner.

Wolves dominated for long periods; however their inability to convert their chances meant they suffered a third consecutive defeat.

Newcastle United conceded a 96th minute equaliser in their 2-2 draw with Southampton last time out.

Allan Saint Maximin thought he had earned Newcastle a first win of the season, however James Ward-Prowse late penalty denied them.

Match history
Manchester United won both meetings last term, scoring seven goals in the process.

Bruno Fernandes scored one and assisted another in the 3-1 home victory that kept their then slim title hopes alive.

Team news
Ronaldo returned from international duty early and there is a good chance he comes straight into the XI.

Jadon Sancho is a doubt having missed England’s trio of games, whilst Donny van de Beek could earn a rare start.

Isaac Hayden should recover from injury to feature at Old Trafford.

It appears probable Newcastle will be without both Jonjo Shelvey and Miguel Almiron.

Expected starting XI’s
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Van de Beek; Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba; Ronaldo

Newcastle United (3-5-2): Woodman; Fernandez, Lascelles, Schar; Murphy, Willock, Hayden, Longstaff, Ritchie; Wilson, Saint-Maximin


Result: Manchester United
United have a very good home record against Newcastle and few would back against them here

Correct Score: 3-0
United have scored 11 in their last three matches against Newcastle and will likely get a few here

Anytime Goalscorer: Cristiano Ronaldo
