Manchester United will clash heads with Newcastle United at St. James’ Park this Monday night as they try to collect all three points on their travels. The Red Devils managed to beat Norwich City by a narrow 1-0 scoreline in their last league outing, so they will be eager to secure another win in the Premier League and move up the league table.

Ralf Rangnick will opt for a 4-2-2-2 formation and could name Raphael Varane in his starting XI if the French centre-back can pass a late fitness test.

David de Gea will feature in goal for the Red Devils after he kept a clean sheet versus the Canaries earlier this month. As mentioned earlier, Varane is expected to start if he can return to full fitness ahead of this game. The ex-Real Madrid talent will operate alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of Rangnick’s defence as they look to earn a clean sheet during the 90 minutes.

Diogo Dalot will get a start at right-back while Alex Telles hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will be given the license to get forward and express themselves in the Newcastle half so that they can create chances for their teammates up top.

Victor Lindelof should be fit to start on the bench as he offers cover for the centre-half positions.

Fred and Scott McTominay will once again anchor the midfield for the Red Devils as they try to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park.

Both Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho will play just ahead of them as Man United’s free-flowing attacking midfielders. They will both carry most of the creative workload for Man United in the final third.

Mason Greenwood, Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they await their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.


Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford will lead the line for the Mancunian giants in the attacking end of the field. Rangnick will ask both of them to cause all sorts of problems for the Newcastle defenders this Monday night.
