Predicted Manchester United and Newcastle United line-ups

Old Trafford 2

Here is how we predict Manchester United and Newcastle United will line up this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 22nd August 2015 at 12:45. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Odds: Man Utd 1/3, Draw 4/1, Newcastle 8/1

Manchester United take on Newcastle United on Saturday lunchtime in their third Premier League match of the season.

United have a 100 per cent record to date having defeated Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa both 1-0 while Newcastle followed up a 2-2 draw with Southampton with a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Swansea City the following weekend.

That means Louis van Gaal’s side currently find themselves fourth in the Premier League while the Magpies are 15th and in desperate need of their first victory of the new campaign.

United had a Champions League qualifier against Club Brugges while Newcastle’s players had the chance to put their feet up, so Steve McClaren’s men could be fresher going into this match.

But that will have to be at their best to get a victory at Old Trafford after van Gaal returned it to its former fortress-like status.

Newcastle certainly have the players to cause Saturday’s opponents plenty of problems so what better time for summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic to score his first goal for his new club?
