Newcastle United welcome Manchester United to St James' Park in the Premier League on Saturday night. Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team bounce back from their 6-1 loss to Tottenham?

Newcastle Form

Newcastle United have responded well to their convincing 3-0 defeat at home to Brighton and Hove Albion, with the Magpies since going unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions. 

Steve Bruce’s team currently find themselves in the quarter-finals of the League Cup after defeating Morecambe and Newport County in a favourable run to the last eight. 

They have also picked up four points from their last two games in the Premier League. The run started in somewhat fortunate fashion as Callum Wilson’s late penalty saw them earn a 1-1 draw away to Tottenham.

That result was then followed up by a 3-1 win at home to Burnley prior to the international break thanks to goals from Allan Saint-Maximin and a brace from Wilson, who has scored four goals in as many appearances this season.

Newcastle Team News

Martin Dubravka, Matt Ritchie and Dwight Gayle are all still missing for Newcastle, while Jamaal Lewis is also doubtful after an Achilles problem. Paul Dumett, Ciaran Clark and Jamaal Lascelles will all be assessed before the game.

Man United Form

Having ended last season in such positive fashion, it feels as though Manchester United are back to square one after making a hugely unimpressive start to the new Premier League season. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team currently find themselves sat 16th in the table after losing two of their opening three games.

The campaign kicked off with a 3-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace, and their performance in a 3-2 win away to Brighton still left plenty to be desired as they relied upon a penalty being awarded after the final whistle via VAR.

United hit a new low last time out when losing 6-1 at home to Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham at Old Trafford, with Anthony Martial’s first half red card setting the tone for a miserable afternoon.

Man United Team News

Manchester United will be without Martial due to suspension, while new signing Edinson Cavani is also unavailable. Fellow new arrival Alex Telles is set to be included in the squad. Eric Bailly (hamstring) is missing.
