Manchester United's predicted line-up against Newcastle United

Manchester United's predicted line-up against Newcastle Unit

Manchester United would be generally pleased with the return of English star Marcus Rashford for this weekend's clash against Newcastle United on the road.

Rashford was absent from the UEFA Champions League duel against Galatasaray following his red card against FC Copenhagen on Matchday 4 encounter.

And he's certain to take his place in the Red Devils attack especially as Jadon Sancho is still in suspension imposed on him by the club.

Brazil's midfield player Casemiro (thigh injury), Mason Mount (Calf problem), defender Jonny Evans (thigh), Christian Eriksen (knee issue), Amad Diallo(knee issue), Lisandro Martinez (foot), Tyrell Malacia (knee complication) will be absent again from this fixture.


Andre Onana is expected to be in goal despite two free-kick goals he conceded off the boots of Galatasaray and Morocco Superstar Hakim Ziyech.

With French veteran defender Raphael Varane out of contention, Swede Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire would form the centre-back pairing to shield Onana in Manchester United's goal.

Luke Shaw is expected to feature at the left-back after returning to fitness, but Portuguese right-back Diogo Dalot is poised to come back in for Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the right-back position.

Kobbie Mainoo was relegated to the bench against Galatasaray in the UEFA Champions League despite his positive display against the Toffees at the weekend.

But the teenager is expected to come in for Morocco's Sofyan Amrabat who would feature alongside Scottish midfield star Scott Mc Tominay.

Alejandro Garnacho may have sealed his place in the United starting team after sterling performances in the games against Everton and Galatasaray with a beauty of a goal in each game.

And with Bruno Fernandes in top form in the free role position coupled with the return to action of new signing Rasmus Hojlund, Brazil's Antony could be the one to make way for the returning Marcus Rashford in this all-important duel against Newcastle United.

How Manchester United could line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation scheme
