Manchester United are back at long last. The Red Devils’ first match in 16 days will kick off at 8pm.

United visit Newcastle, with the game surviving the Covid postponements which saw the previous two league games postponed.

Here is a look at how Ralf Rangnick’s refreshed side line up for the fixture at St James’ Park.

Starting XI: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Telles, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Rashford, Greenwood, Ronaldo

Substitutes: Henderson, Jones, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Matic, van de Beek, Cavani, Sancho, Elanga

This is just United’s third league game under Rangnick, who has victories over Crystal Palace and Norwich City so far.

The interim boss is looking for the team to register a third clean sheet in a row, and continue the defensive improvement shown prior to the unexpected break.

United are playing Newcastle for the second time this season, following the 4-1 win at Old Trafford at the start of September in which Cristiano Ronaldo made his comeback.

Newcastle have been in poor form lately, conceding 11 goals in the process of losing their last three games.

Their line-up can be seen below…
