Background

United are looking to bounce back from a horrendous 2-0 loss away at Watford.

That result puts us level on points with opponents Newcastle heading into this fixture.

Tottenham won against Brighton earlier, meaning we have to win just to stay in touch with the top four race.

A fixture away at Burnley follows two days later for United before Arsenal on New Year’s Day.
