How CaughtOffside thinks Manchester United will line up against Newcastle.
United have seen a slight upturn in their fortunes over the past week. After seeing of Aston Villa by a score of 4-1, they then held the European juggernaut that is Bayern Munich to a respectable 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Champions League tie. With one eye still on Europe next season, a win over the Magpies will not only do their credentials good, but their morale too.
GK: David de Gea
No doubts between the sticks as the Spaniard goes from strength to strength.
The young Brazilian has cemented himself as a regular starter in United’s back line and his charges down the right will be a welcome attacking threat.
CB: Nemanja Vidic
Scored against Bayern, he will be looking to make the run in his swan song before heading to Inter Milan.
CB: Phil Jones
Performed admirably on the right against Bayern, but will return in a more familiar central role in place of Rio Ferdinand.
LB: Patrice Evra
The Frenchman is in the shop window now and will be playing for his next move during the run in.
