Magpies to Meet Manchester United in Massive Monday Match-Up!

The Red Devils need a victory to keep their dream of Champions League football alive. Newcastle are desperate for three points towards their bid for Premier League survival. What will happen in this dramatic Monday showdown?

Manchester United return to action after a catastrophic coronavirus outbreak on Monday, with a trip to Newcastle United in the English Premier League (EPL).

While the Red Devils have been struggling with a long list of COVID-19 cases, Eddie Howe’s hosts are looking to avoid a fourth defeat in succession.

Heading into this clash, the Magpies sit 19th in the EPL table, level on 10 points with bottom club, Norwich City, and having played one more game. Ralf Rangnick’s United are sixth, with 27 points and with a game in hand over 5th-placed, West Ham United.

Newcastle midfielder, Isaac Hayden, picked up his fifth booking of the league season last weekend, so will miss out here. Therefore, with Jonjo Shelvey still doubtful due to injury, Sean Longstaff could start in the middle of the park.

Howe may be pleased with the returns of Emil Krafth and Javier Manquillo, from non-COVID-related illnesses, but a fully-fit Jacob Murphy should keep his place at right-back anyway.

Meanwhile, for Manchester United, Rangnick has suggested that he will have a full squad to select from for this encounter, with the exception of the recovering Paul Pogba.

Raphaël Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Edinson Cavani, Victor Lindelöf, and Anthony Martial are therefore all vying for starts at St James’ Park.

Varane could replace Harry Maguire if he is deemed fit enough, but Diogo Dalot will hope to retain his place over Wan-Bissaka.

We are expecting a big win for Manchester United in this game. Our prediction is 4-0, with the net found three times in the second half.

Newcastle United possible starting XI:
Dúbravka; Murphy, Lascelles, Schär, Ritchie; Almirón, Longstaff, Willock, Joelinton; Wilson, Saint-Maximin

Manchester United possible starting XI:
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Sancho, Fernandes; Ronaldo, Rashford
