4-3-3: Manchester United predicted XI vs Newcastle – Sanchez right-wing

Manchester United’s next game takes place on Sunday afternoon, when the Red Devils head North to take on Newcastle United.

Jose Mourinho’s men will be in buoyant mood following a victory last time out against Huddersfield Town, but the self-proclaimed Special One has never won a Premier League away game at St. James’ Park.

Ahead of that match, we’ve drawn up the likely starting XI that we’ll see take on Rafa Benitez’s team.

Check out the XI here:

David de Gea will obviously start in goal, and I expect Mourinho to name an unchanged centre-back pairing of Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling. Ashley Young will come back into the team as he’s more defensive-minded, with Antonio Valencia completing the back four.

Nemanja Matic will start as the base of a three-man midfield. He’ll be tasked with solely breaking up Newcastle attacks. Ander Herrera will bring some much-needed energy to the midfield, which will, in turn, allow Paul Pogba to play higher up the pitch.

Anthony Martial deserves to keep his place as the left-sided attacker, with Alexis Sanchez playing on the right but no doubt the pair will chop and change throughout the match. Romelu Lukaku leads the line.
