Manchester United will resume their Premier League battles after the international break as they take on Newcastle United on Sunday. The upcoming clash would be a massive opportunity for both clubs in the race for a top-four finish, hence, we can expect fierce competition between them.

Erik ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a few changes in the starting XI for this contest. Scott McTominay could make his way back into the midfield to play alongside Marcel Sabitzer as Casemiro completes his suspension.

David de Gea is expected to continue between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing.

Raphael Varane will continue alongside Lisandro Martinez as they form the customary centre-half partnership at the heart of United’s backline. Luke Shaw should keep his place at the left-back position, whereas Aaron Wan-Bissaka will fill in on the other flank as the right-back.

Tyrell Malacia and Diogo Dalot will take a spot on the bench to provide cover for the defensive positions.


Marcel Sabitzer is expected to start in the defensive midfield position. On the other hand, Scott McTominay will return to the central midfield in the absence of Casemiro.

Bruno Fernandes remains a sure-fire starter for Man United in this weekend’s encounter. It’ll be an understatement to say that the Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Portugal international’s creative work in front of the goal to seal the deal.

Fred will have to settle for a place on the bench but could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.


Antony and Marcus Rashford will take up the wide positions, looking to cause a menace for the Newcastle defenders down the right and left-wing, respectively.

Wout Weghorst is expected to lead the line against the opposition in this contest. The Dutch forward’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the opposition defenders as he carries most of the goal-scoring burden for the Red Devils.

Jadon Sancho could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
