After our first draw of the season away at Swansea, United face a potentially tricky Newcastle side at Old Trafford in the traditional Boxing Day fixture, with the congested fixture list over the Christmas period coming up, I expect Fergie to make a few changes for this one.
This game will probably come too soon for Kagawa, and I imagine Vidic won’t make two starts in quick succession, so Ferdinand will probably return to the starting line-up.
Jordan’s predicted XI
De Gea; Jones, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evra; Fletcher, Carrick, Scholes; Rooney, RvP, Hernandez
Ben’s predicted XI
De Gea; Jones, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Young; Rooney ,Welbeck
