Manchester United vs Newcastle United: Talking Tactics
Erik ten Hag will set his players up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to ask his players to dominate the game and engineer enough goal-scoring opportunities to win this contest.
Eddie Howe will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to keep a good shape at the back and cause a few problems for the opposition defenders on the counter.
Anthony Martial is a major doubt for this game and will be in a race against time to be fit this Sunday. Furthermore, both Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will also miss this game because of injuries.
Manchester United Predicted XI
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Fernandes, Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Ronaldo, Rashford
Alexander Isak, Emil Krafth and Jonjo Shelvey will be sidelined for this match due to injuries. Otherwise, Howe has no fresh injury headaches ahead of this exciting clash at the Theatre of Dreams.
Newcastle United Predicted XI
Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; S Longstaff, Guimaraes, Willock; Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Almiron
Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford have to figure out a way to share the goal-scoring workload for the Red Devils on the attacking end of the field.
The defensive performance of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez could go a long way in determining the fate of this game.
Nick Pope will have to make a string of important saves if Newcastle United are to have any chance of earning a clean sheet at Old Trafford this weekend.
The front three of Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson would be given a chance to make a difference in the final third.
