Manchester United have made it three wins on the trot since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge at Old Trafford, as the Red Devils have rediscovered their identity and it’s absolutely brilliant to watch.
Twelve goals in three games is the perfect start in an offensive capacity, but the one problem that still needs ironing out is finding that defensive solidity.
With games coming thick and fast, United head North to play a Newcastle side who have improved recently. Make no mistake about it, this is Solskjaer’s toughest fixture to date, and if we can get a win here, it’d show that we really mean business.
Anyway, let’s dive right into the predicted stating line-up.
David de Gea will always play in between the sticks when fit, although there could be a couple of changes to the back four. Diogo Dalot will head back into the team at right-back, with Luke Shaw opposite him. Victor Lindelof has been an ever-present under the new regime, I expect that to continue here. Phil Jones will come into the team for Eric Bailly who is suspended.
Nemanja Matic has looked completely rejuvenated, he will start. Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba caused havoc against Bournemouth, no doubt they’ll be looking to do the same here.
Romelu Lukaku will lead the line after Marcus Rashford picked up a little knock in the last outing. Anthony Martial will start on the left, with Jesse Lingard making up the XI.
