Here is the side that Steve Bruce has selected to redeem themselves this afternoon.

As reported by Craig Hope, both Ciaran Clark and Matty Longstaff get their first league starts of the year. We had expected Allan Saint-Maximin to come into the side, and he does but it’s in place of Christian Atsu. Miguel Almiron retains his place presumably on the right-wing.
Jetro Willems comes back to the team after missing out last week with a knee problem. We also see DeAndre Yedlin make his first start since April after his sports hernia surgery. This will give the team a lot of pace on the flanks.
Dwight Gayle has made the bench today in place of Yoshinori Muto. Jonjo Shelvey also gets into the match-day squad having recovered from his hamstring injury.
Here is who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has chosen from his limited options for the Red Devils.

It’s a weakened side for Manchester United though the players coming in will be hungry to impress. Newcastle must come out and start well against this side. We need to see the lads getting the first goal. However, if they go down, we better not see any heads drop.
A win sees us out of the relegation zone for the coming international break. We usually say we just want to see an improved performance from the lads. But we are sick to death of that. We want all three points today!
Howay The Lads!
