Newcastle United At Manchester United – Team Prediction, Injuries, And Poll Result



This is the team I suspect Bruce may name for tonight’s match at Old Trafford against Manchester United. It has three changes from Monday’s defeat at Chelsea.

While the team above is one I think Bruce will name, it’s not the one I hope he goes with. These types of matches don’t suit Jonjo Shelvey so maybe a recall for Sean Longstaff to play alongside his brother Matty could be an option.

Newcastle won’t have any injured players back for tonight but there are also no fresh injury concerns so Bruce has options. I expect a few changes from Chelsea but suspect he’ll stick with the 4-3-3 formation.

Manchester United could be without a handful of players with Paul Pogba ruled out and Edinson Cavani struggling with a muscle injury.

Newcastle United Injuries

Callum Wilson (hamstring), Javier Manquillo (ankle), Fabian Schar (knee), Fede Fernandez (hamstring)

Manchester United Injuries

Paul Pogba (thigh), Phil Jones (knee), Edison Cavani (muscle – late fitness test), Donny van de Beek (muscle – late fitness test), Scott McTominay (knock – late fitness test)

Our poll for this match has 80% expecting a loss. This means that Fulham could overtake us next weekend if we get nothing from Wolves at St. James’ Park on Saturday and they defeat Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

A result tonight could alleviate that problem at least for another week. However, it’s not looking good for Newcastle at the moment as we’ve been dragged into a relegation fight after being 10 points clear just over a week ago. That’s what wins do as Fulham have picked up 7 points on us since last Saturday.

How Will Newcastle Do At Manchester United On Sunday?

    Rotonda, I’ve no issue with that and am happy to giggle at lovestruck guys like you who were, and are, congenitally incapable of saying anything remotely negative about the man. Little bit of perspective wouldn’t go amiss.

    Mund, yep you were right, they don’t leave it long do they?

    As a fan, I’ve no say in the manager, owner or the players we sign.

    Have no say in relegation or a takeover, just have to deal with whatever card we’re dealt.

    Not how it should be, how it is.

    All I get to do it vent, or whinge about it, whilst being called deluded by pundits and journalists.

    Great fun.

    Wonder if they’ll bring Pat Butcher back as well then, it always amazed how she could speak without her lips moving.

    Pat Butcher is taking over as Portsmouth manager with Ricky as assistant coach and Wellhard as kit man dog.

    I am expecting Hendrick to be straight back into the side — I hope not, if he’s going 5 at the back.

    Totally understandable that some fans are calling for 5 at the back in this game — but for me it just represents regression — I’d prefer to see the side attempt to evolve and progress with the 4 at the back.

    Behave — Wellhard was well hard – I know he got hit by a bus or something, he just got up, bit his own legs off and walked away.

    Yep, looks like Bruce is sticking to his guns. Unless Hayden is playing CB that is.

    I’m assuming there is no B side on your record. You need to get it digitally remastered as your vinyl has worn out from excessive overuse. A 14 year old would say something like ” lovestruck”. Your emotional growth and maturity seems a bit stunted.

    Steve Bruce makes one change to the Newcastle side which lost at Chelsea last Monday as Joelinton replaces Dwight Gayle in attack.

    Defender Federico Fernandez does not make the bench.

    Newcastle XI: Darlow, Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Lewis, Willock, Hayden, Shelvey, Joelinton, Almiron, Saint-Maximin.

    Subs: Dubravka, Dummett, Carroll, Ritchie, Gayle, Hendrick, Fraser, Murphy, S Longstaff.

    Anyone here any rumors of Bruce being fired tonight if we don’t win?

    Easy to see see Graeme Jones taking over.

    Either way, we lose 3-0 today.

    Shelvey starting, that’s the game lost already then. Disclaimer if we win the game courtesy of a worldy by Shelvey.

    I’ll see a takeover before I see ASM Almiron and Fraser on the pitch togther.

    Probably see Halley’s comment first.

    Joelinton will be running that right-hand channel by the looks of things. A bit of a different role to everywhere else he has been tried. You can only pray we somehow land on his best position; if he even has one.

    Typical crap team put out by our so called useless coach, I,m sorry but IMO I think we are going to get a big walloping hopefully not as big as Southampton got ! I only hope it’s his last match in charge of OUR team. ps Hope WLtoon had a good birthday, sorry a bit late !

    Daniel James playing for Man Utd. He’ll cause all sorts of problems hitting the byline.
