Manchester United are set to take on Newcastle United in what should be a cracking game of football at Old Trafford on Thursday, 26th December 2019. Manchester United are coming into this game on the back of a disappointing result against Watford losing 2-0 while Newcastle United produced a 1-0 win over Palace thanks to Miguel Almiron’s goal.
Manchester United vs Newcastle United Preview: Any team coming to old trafford fancy their chances against what is fast becoming a very unpredictable Manchester United side. Newcastle United will be looking to frustrate united with a low defensive block and hope to catch them on counter attack. United on the other hand must find a way to turn things around against such sides or Ole Gunner Solskjaer will be getting more criticism if they keep dropping points against bottom teams.
Team news and Possible Lineups: Solskjael will have Paul Pogba full fit and might start first game in three months and looking at their results against teams who setup with low defensive block, Paul Pogba is exactly what United need to open up defenses.
Martial, James and Rashford are likely to start as front trio while Pogba might be given the no.10 role with Lingard starting from the bench. Fred and McTominy set to start in midfield while Lindelof, Maguair, Shaw and Wan-Bassaka to start as back four with out of form De Gea in goal.
