    KINGS OF THE CASTLE

    Newcastle looked relaxed as they arrived for their clash with Manchester United.

    Their last home game saw them beat Burnley 3-1.

    CHANGE OF THE GUARDS

    Speaking ahead of the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained what he wanted from the players that he moved into his starting XI.

    The Manchester United boss said: “We want a response, of course.

    “We want energy, we want attitude. We want lads who fight and play as a team on and off the ball.

    “We have to be more compact and put pressure on the ball, we can't give them time on the ball, as they have players that can hurt us.

    “When we have it, we have to get tempo on the ball and play as a team.”

    SHAKEN NOT STIRRED

    Ole has shaken up his starting XI following the thrashing at home, at the hands of Tottenham.

    He's made five changes which sees Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Eric Bailly dropped to the bench.

    While Anthony Martial is suspended, following his dubious red card, Mason Greenwood is missing from the matchday squad.

    Manchester United's midfield looks completely different, with Scott McTominay, Fred, Juan Mata and Daniel James called to start.

    But Donny Van De Beek still doesn't get his first Premier League start.

    ROLLING INTO TYNESIDE

    United have rolled into St James' Park.

    Here's hoping this is the only parked bus we see this evening!

    PARK IT

    Manchester United fans have been less than impressed at their club's social media account for their tongue-in-cheek Tweet regarding away days at St James' Park.

    Fans are already aggrieved about not being able to attend fixtures during this time and in the United Kingdom they've been dealt an additional blow by having to fork out £14.99 to watch United in action.

    United's social media account made light of the fact that fans won't have to sit in the Gods at St James' Park this evening, but their Tweet, which was swiftly deleted, did not sit well with fans.

    GOOD EVENING

    Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be without Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani during his trip to Newcastle and there are also doubts about his captain Harry Maguire.

    While Martial is serving a ban for his sending off during Manchester United’s thrashing at the hands of Tottenham, Cavani is still in quarantine having signed for the club on deadline day.

    Maguire sustained a knock before his sending off for England earlier this week and fellow defender Axel Tuanzebe is not fully fit after suffering a foot injury.

    Meanwhile, Newcastle’s skipper Jamaal Lascelles will return to the squad after missing the last two games with a hamstring problem, as will fellow central defender Fabian Schar.

    Newcastle have won two of their last three Premier League home games against Manchester United and have started this season well, having picked up seven points from a possible twelve.

    However, United will want to bounce back following their drubbing at home against Spurs and will look to their top players who performed well during the international break.

    Previously when pressure has mounted on Solskjær, United have responded with a good run of form.

    He’ll need his side to deliver more of the same today, as following this evening’s away fixture there are a daunting run of games.

    Stick with us this evening and we'll bring you all of the action.
