Manchester United will be playing today in the Premier League Matchday 27 against Rafael Benitez side, Newcastle United, in a must-win match.
Manchester United have to win this match today to continue their winning run and to keep trying to catch Manchester City in the title race, even though logically it’s hard, but fighting for the last match is a must for Manchester United and Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United will be playing away from home today, at Newcastle United’s home Saint James Park, where Manchester United squad traveled yesterday, Saturday, from Manchester airport to Newcastle.
Several photographers were waiting for Manchester United’s squad to board their plane, such as the photographers of Manchester Evening News, a local Manchester news website, where the photographers spotted the players in the bus on their way to their plane in the airport which no surprises in the squad.
Several players still missing from the squad such as Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic due to injuries, where Zlatan Ibrahimovic was reported to be fit to be back to the starting Xl soon after returning to training.
