The fixture is sure to be among the most hotly contested of the weekend.
Manchester United have started the campaign strongly, and head into this weekend with a 100% record in the league following victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa. However, Louis van Gaal’s side have not been wholly convincing and their weaknesses were evident against Club Brugge in their Champions League playoff first leg.
This weekend, they meet Newcastle—who are yet to win this season, following a draw with Southampton and a defeat to Swansea—with the Magpies surely keen to expose any weaknesses in the Red Devils’ makeup.
Will van Gaal’s side be able to extend their 100 percent record this season, or will Steve McClaren’s side end their winning run?
Against Brugge, Memphis was the star man for Manchester United, and immediately began to repay the weighty £31 million that United spent to bring him to Old Trafford.
The Dutchman will likely start again, and will alternate with Adnan Januzaj for a role as the Number 10 behind Wayne Rooney.
Here’s our predicted Manchester United lineup vs. Newcastle United: Romero, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Januzaj, Memphis, Mata, Rooney.
But who will be the star man?
