Newcastle Eye Away Win Against Man United


Marouane Fellaini


Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini completes a ban, while Phil Jones remains absent with thrombosis. Bastian Schweinsteiger could make his first start for the Red Devils but Marcos Rojo is still not match fit.

Newcastle could give a debut to new winger Florian Thauvin, but defender Daryl Janmaat is banned after being sent off at Swansea last weekend.

Midfielder Moussa Sissoko was substituted in that game with a groin injury but he could still play.

The midweek European win will have put an extra spring in the Manchester United step because, despite two victories, it has been an underwhelming start to their league season.

Their challenge now is to build on it against Newcastle and try to find some momentum.

Newcastle will have to click quickly if they are to make it a happy return to Old Trafford for Steve McClaren.

His task on Tyneside will take time, and one area that will need drastic improvement is their awful away record. He’ll need his team to be disciplined and organised to try to change recent fortunes in Manchester.

Leicester midfielder Gokhan Inler goes straight into the squad after signing from Napoli this week.
