Manchester United are looking for their third successive win in the Premier League under Ralf Rangnick as they lock horns with Newcastle United on Monday. It could be a must-win encounter for the Red Devils if they are to maintain pressure on fourth-placed Arsenal. On the flip side, anything other than a win could see them fail to regain their sixth place in the table to West Ham United.

As for Newcastle United, their fortunes haven’t improved much since the appointment of Eddie Howe. The Magpies are coming on the back of three back to back defeats in the league, with the team conceding at least three goals in each of those matches. The disappointing run of results has left NUFC at the lower end of the table, level on points with bottom club Norwich City.

Talking Tactics

Manchester United

Ralf Rangnick is set to persist with his 4-4-2 setup with Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford leading the line. But they can effortlessly switch to a 4-3-3 or even a 4-2-3-1 with Rashford moving out wide along with Jadon Sancho. Their pace on the break could be essential as the hosts look to exploit the vulnerable Newcastle United defence.

Newcastle United

Eddie Howe, meanwhile, will be hoping to continue with his 4-5-1 setup with Callum Wilson serving as the target man. The Magpies are likely to play on the counter, although they can be susceptible on the break themselves, especially if they fail to keep tabs on United’s wide players in Sancho and Rashford.

Team News For Manchester United Vs Newcastle United

Manchester United

Manchester United have successfully navigated their COVID scare, with a majority of the infected players back in contention. In fact, the only guaranteed absentee for Monday’s clash against Newcastle United is Paul Pogba, although both Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial remain slight doubts due to their fitness.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United have a few notable absentees heading into this game including the injured trifecta of Jamal Lewis, Federico Fernandez and Paul Dummett, whereas midfielder Isaac Hayden is serving a suspension. On the flip side, though, Emil Krafth and Javier Manquillo are both expected to return to action while Jonjo Shelvey may recover in time for Monday’s encounter as well.

Predicted Lineups

Manchester United: de Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Telles; McTominay, Fred; Sancho, Fernandes; Ronaldo, Rashford

Newcastle United: Dubravka; Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Ritchie; Almiron, Welbeck, Longstaff, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin; Wilson
