Manchester United will play tomorrow a crucial match against Benitez side, Newcastle United, in a match that may seem easy on papers, but hard in reality. Manchester United can’t afford a third loss this season if they want to stay in the title race with their neighbor, Manchester City.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Saturday, November 18 at 6:30 PM BST.
Where: The Old Trafford
Who will play?
Manchester United isn’t expected to change the team that started against Chelsea. We expect the following starting Xl.
Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Smalling (captain), Bailly, and Jones
Midfielders: Matic, Herrera, Valencia, and Young
Forward: Rashford, Lukaku, and Mkhitaryan
Pogba, Zlatan, and Rojo
The trio, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Paul Pogba are officially back in the squad. However, they aren’t expected to start, except Pogba may start because he wasn’t out for as long as Ibra and Rojo, since last April.
We expect them to be Jose Mourinho’s three subs tomorrow if the result is in Man United’s favor. And if not, Rojo may stay on the bench, and Pogba and Zlatan may be a game changer.
Manchester United has to win, no matter what. We expect a 3-1 win against Newcastle United.
Manchester United has lost just once in the last 32 games against Newcastle United in the Old Trafford, 22 times Manchester United won, and nine times the two sides have drawn.
