Manchester United will look to continue their fine recent form when they take on Newcastle United at St James’ Park this evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made three changes from the side that beat Bournemouth at the weekend with Phil Jones coming in to the back four in place of Eric Bailly – who’s suspended after being sent off on Sunday.


Antonio Valencia is also recalled at right-back with Ashley Young dropping to the bench while Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw keep their places in defence. United line-up with the same midfield trio as Ander Herrera keeps his place alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic meaning Fred has to make-do with a place on the bench.

Marcus Rashford is passed fit to start up front despite picking up a minor knock at the weekend so Romelu Lukaku is named among the substitutes where he’s joined by Alexis Sanchez. Juan Mata gets a recall in attack with Jesse Lingard making way but Anthony Martial keeps his place.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Dubravka, Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Ritchie, Perez, Hayden, Diame, Atsu, Rondon.

Subs: Woodman, Lejeune, Manquillo, Shelvey, Kenedy, Muto, Joselu

Man Utd

De Gea, Valencia, Lindelof, Jones, Shaw, Herrera, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Rashford, Martial

Subs: Sanchez, Lukaku, Lingard, Fred, Young, Romero, Darmian
