" Man Utd vs Newcastle preview, team news, kick-off

 Team news and stats ahead of Newcastle vs Man Utd in the Premier League on Saturday (start at 20:00).

Team news

Skipper Jamaal Lascelles will return to Newcastle's squad against Manchester United. Lascelles has missed the last two games with a hamstring problem, but is available once again, as is his central colleague Fabian Schar, who started all three of Switzerland's games during the international break after fearing he had exacerbated a shoulder injury during 3-1. win over Burnley last time.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had two weeks of soul searching to reflect on Manchester United's sad 6-1 capitulation to Tottenham at Old Trafford. You simply cannot afford to see more points drop on the road against Newcastle this weekend.

The Red Devils have drifted off the mark this season with the club currently 16th on the Premier League table, but that doesn't paint the whole picture. A beating at the hands of former chief José Mourinho has rubbed the wounds and has put Solskjaer's mandate into question.

The Norwegian will now be desperate to respond with a positive result and performance at Tyneside. But, where Man Utd has been erratic and unpredictable this season, Newcastle has been somewhat stable and relatively consistent.

Wins over West Ham and Burnley have increased by a good point away at the Spurs, but Steve Bruce does not have a flawless record this season, overseeing a lame 3-0 loss to Brighton. You will expect the result to be a mere problem and not part of a larger problem.

Scoreboard prediction: Newcastle United 1-2 Manchester United
