Team News

Newcastle United have a lengthy list of absentees with Papiss Demba Cisse, Curtis Good, Massadio Haidara, Tim Krul, Gabriel Obertan, Steven Taylor and Michael Williamson sidelined through injuries. Fabricio Coloccini will face a late fitness test. Jack Colback, Vurnon Anita and Rolando Aarons have been listed as doubts as well, so Newcastle might fall short in central midfield.

Bastian Schweinsteiger joins Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Nick Powell and Marcos Rojo on the sidelines after the midfielder picked up a knock on Saturday. Morgan Schneiderlin could return to the starting lineup but Ashley Young and Phil Jones will face late fitness tests.

Newcastle United Possible Starting Lineup: Robert Elliot, Daryl Janmaat, Chancel Mbemba, Fabricio Coloccini, Paul Dummett, Moussa Sissoko, Cheick Tiote, Jack Colback, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Manchester United Possible Starting Lineup: David de Gea, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Ashley Young, Morgan Schneiderlin, Michael Carrick, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Anthony Marital, Wayne Rooney.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“We’ve had opportunities to win games & not taken them. Goals only thing we’re missing. It’s hard but we must stay calm. Everybody who’s watched us recently, we’ve controlled games & normally you win those. It’s unfortunate but we have to solve it.

I know it’s difficult, it’s difficult for all of us to show a little bit of patience, but there’s work going on and Tuesday at home to Manchester United is the next challenge for us.”

– Steve McLaren, Newcastle United.

“Always in the Premier League and against lower league teams, the games are tough. There are often surprises. Tuesday against Newcastle will be tough, it is always tough there but we started the New Year well so we have to continue that.”

– Louis van Gaal, Manchester United.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, Manchester United have won four out of their last six meetings against Newcastle United and lost only once. The Toons are also winless in their previous four matches, with three consecutive 1-0 losses in their last three matches.

Manchester United are undefeated against Newcastle United in 26 of their last 28 matches in all competitions, so Louis van Gaal’s side are expected to defeat Steve McLaren’s side by a scoreline of 1-0.
