Manchester United fans were full of excitement after their team to face Newcastle today was announced. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to make it four out of four tonight.
Red Devils stars Alexis Sanchez and Antonio Valencia have made a surprise return from the dungeon that former United boss Jose Mourinho banished them to.
Sanchez hasn’t made an appearance for United in five weeks and it looks as though Solskjaer’s uber-attacking mentality could reignite Sanchez’s career at Old Trafford. The Chile star is on the bench this evening.
Veteran right-back Valencia has been handed back the armband by Solskjaer, the Ecuadorian was stripped of the captaincy and sent into exile for liking social media posts that criticised Mourinho.
The Red Devils have won all three of their games under Solskjaer in impressive fashion and the Norwegian will be hoping that he can make it four wins out of four against Rafa Benitez’s men on their trip to Tyneside.

Solskjaer could defy the odds and lead United to top four finish this season if he can continue their impressive run of form.
