Casemiro continues his suspension on Sunday, missing his first of three Premier League games. Who deputises for him will be the central question for United manager, Ten Hag. Sabitzer had some injury issues on international duty, in contrast with McTominay, who scored four goals in two games.
Upfront there are questions over Rashford’s fitness, Garnacho is out long-term, and Martial has a chance of being a part of the squad after completing two weeks of training.
There are no significant issues at the back so we expect something like this:
Wan-Bissaka Varane Martinez Shaw
Antony Weghorst Rashford
The most likely changes are Sabitzer for McTominay and Sancho or Pellistri for Antony.
Score Prediction: 1-2
It will probably be a far more challenging game than the League Cup final. Newcastle will be in familiar surroundings, and no team of players have put in as much mileage as Manchester United have this season. A narrow away win would be a great result.
