Manchester United vs Newcastle United tactical preview: team news, key men and streaming links

Manchester United host Newcastle United at Old Trafford in the Premier League this week. While the former side come into the match on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal, the Magpies were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton in their previous game.

On the other hand, Eddie Howe will prepare a traditional 4-3-3 formation. The Magpies should press high up the field to win the ball. They are good in transition and expect the same style of play for this game.

Tyrell Malacia (knee), Victor Lindelof (thigh), Harry Maguire (muscle), Raphael Varane (muscle), Mason Mount (unspecified), Luke Shaw (thigh) and Anthony Martial (groin) are out.

Newcastle United Provided XI

Dubravka; Trippier, Krafth, Burn, Hall; Anderson, Guimaraes, Longstaff; Almiron, Isak, Gordon

Newcastle United do well whenever Bruno Guimaraes does well. Once again, a lot will depend on the midfielder. Anthony Gordon has been in good form and will be vital in creating threats.
