|Manchester United Vs Newcastle - Preview And Possible Lineups by Ochoochogift(m): 12:03pm On Oct 06|
Saturday's Premier League fixture between Manchester United and Newcastle at Old Trafford. GMT 17:30
Paul Pogba is expected to start, despite his ongoing saga with manager Jose Mourinho. Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo all missed United's midweek bore draw against Valencia, and they are unlikely to feature on Saturday.
Romelu Lukaku is expected to start up front - The Belgian hasn't scored in five, but has previosuly contributed directly to ten goals in ten games against Newcastle.
Salomon Rondon is out with a thigh injury, and Florian Lejeune continues his lengthy road to recovery.
Federico Fernandez and Paul Dummett both could make a return from hamstring injuries pending the results of fitness tests.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho :
"(They have a) very, very, very good coach, a team that is always very well organised against especially the teams of the first part of the table where their manager is very bright on his analysis of the opponent’s qualities and to try to stop them.
"The results they had against the top teams didn't get them points yet this season but gave them very, very close results and very difficult matches for the opposition. So we expect a difficult match."
Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez :
In all my time in England, I have never come up against a fragile Manchester United team. I see a team that could be higher but, like us, it’s a question of time.
