Manchester United vs Newcastle United: Confirmed starting XI

by Leo Nieboer

Scott McTominay makes his second consecutive start for Manchester United against Newcastle United at the expense of new signing Fred.

The Scot comes into midfield while Ashley Young, who missed Tuesday’s draw with Valencia, starts at right-back over Antonio Valencia and Diogo Dalot, with the pair missing out on the match-day squad altogether.

Alexis Sanchez is dropped once again after performing poorly against Valencia. Rashford and Martial start together for the first time since Man United’s most recent win against Young Boys.

Here is the complete starting XI for what is a make or break clash with Rafa Benitez’s side this afternoon.
