Manchester United will lock horns with Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday evening, hoping to pick up all three points in their fourth game of the campaign. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, whereas Steve Bruce’s men recorded a 2-2 draw against Southampton on matchday 3.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. Donny van de Beek might get the nod over Fred, whereas Cristiano Ronaldo looks likely to make his debut.

Defence

David de Gea is expected to start in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would be looking to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

Dean Henderson has recovered from the after-effects of coronavirus, but it might be some time before he makes his way back into the starting eleven.

Raphael Varane will form the centre-half partnership with skipper Harry Maguire at the heart of United’s backline.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a guaranteed starter at the right-back position, whereas Luke Shaw will fill in on the other flank as the left-back. The English duo would be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield

FIFA’s ban on Brazilian Premier League players could forbid Fred from playing a part in Manchester United’s next two matches.

As a result, Donny van de Beek is expected to start in the central midfield position, whereas Nemanja Matic will slot in as the defensive midfielder.

Bruno Fernandes remains a sure-fire starter for United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Portugal international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Saturday.

Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing respectively.

Attack

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to lead the line for the hosts against Newcastle United. The 36-year-old striker’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Newcastle defence that has conceded eight goals in their last three league games.

Veteran striker Edinson Cavani could be brought on in the second forty-five minutes of the game if needed.
