Newcastle United expected starting XI vs Manchester United - including two ‘harsh’ changes

Newcastle United’s expected starting line-up to face Manchester United - including two changes.

Newcastle United head to Old Trafford full of confidence after scoring nine goals in back-to-back wins against Fulham and Brentford.

It’s been a strong start to the Premier League campaign by Eddie Howe’s side, who have collected 14 points from their opening nine games.

Having already faced Liverpool and Manchester City this season, the Magpies are preparing for another tough test.

“These games are very difficult at the best of times but if you go into the games confident and a good feeling in the group, it gives you the best chance of a positive result,” Howe said.

“We know the next group of games are tough games but we’re going to try and attack them, rise to the occasion and give our all to get another positive result.

Manchester United, although endured a rocky start, have recovered to sit one point and one place above Newcastle in the table.

There is a feeling that Newcastle fancy their chances against the Red Devils as they look to seal only their second-ever win at Old Trafford.
