Goalkeepers Dubravka, Darlow, Woodman, Gillespie, Langley
Defenders Clark, Dummett, Schar, Lascelles, Lewis, Krafth, Fernandez, Manquillo

The Eddie Howe revolution hasn't quite delivered in terms of top-flight-saving results for the Magpies yet - and their tough run of games is not over yet.

But improvements have been made under the ex-Bournemouth boss, and even with Isaac Hayden banned and doubts over Jonjo Shelvey's fitness, he knows he has enough star players to trouble anyone on their day.

Predicted Newcastle starting XI: Dubravka; Murphy, Lascelles, Schar, Ritchie; Almiron, Longstaff, Willock, Joelinton; Wilson, Saint-Maximin.

PositionManchester United roster
Goalkeepers De Gea, Grant, Heaton, Henderson, Kovar
Defenders Lindelof, Bailly, Jones, Maguire, Varane, Dalot, Shaw, Telles, Wan-Bissaka, Mengi, Hardley
Midfielders Mata, Lingard, Fred, Fernandes, Matic, van de Beek, McTominay, Mejbri, Savage, Iqbal
Forwards Ronaldo, Martial, Rashford, Greenwood, Diallo, Cavani, Sancho, Elanga, Shoretire

Unbeaten in his start to life at Old Trafford, Ralf Rangnick may well see the enforced Covid-19 break his side have faced as a blessing in disguise, with all but Paul Pogba back at his disposal.

A formation that combines Cristiano Ronaldo with a secondary striker up front looks set to be the way to go again, and the return of Raphael Varane to the squad could provide some crucial stability at the back.

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