Newcastle v Man United team news

Rangnick has already said that United’s full squad has returned to full training with the exception of Paul Pogba.

It remains to be seen how carefully the returns of Edinson Cavani, Raphael Varane, Anthony Martial, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw are managed.

Rangnick will also be conscious of how much Covid has impacted the fitness and endurance of the players who had it.

Newcastle v United: Our prediction

As mentioned above, United need to be far better here than they were against Norwich.

They got away with it at Carrow Road because David de Gea was so good and Dean Smith’s side lacked a bit of confidence.

Newcastle have been much improved under Howe but United will be looking to impose their pressing game and introduce more of Rangnick’s ideas.

We’ll back United to get a victory here to kick off the festive season although there are plenty of unknowns going into the game.

Our prediction: Newcastle 0-2 United
