    Amidst those squeaky bums.
    Carrick and Fletcher are fine and unaffected by the way, they were with the team in Turin on Thursday. I think McKenna and Phelan are two of the three isolating.

    Our midfield is very bare, not really the game for Matic or Fred as Newcastle will park the bus but they are our only options in midfield.

    I agree and think Matic/ Fred is an overkill against a team that’ll sit deep like Newcastle. I’d like to see Greenwood play centrally (number 10) and Amad on the right though!

    Makes things more difficult today with Donny, McTominay and Cavani not featuring in this game but hopefully all 3 are fit for next Sunday

    4 changes from Thursday I'd expect Ole to make. Out Henderson , McTominay, Telles, Bailly and in DeGea, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic

    more difficult today without Donny

    Guy has been utterly useless every time he's played. Jesse Lingard out of form levels. Which is rich because it's now looking like another absolute howler by the board by shelling out 40m on VDB (when there was more immediate needs ) and letting Lingard go on loan to West Ham, which Lingard has now helped West Ham get to 4th. Meanwhile our biggest signing of the summer VDB was sat on the bench as we dropped more points to relegation fodder because our manager doesn't even rate him to replace Pogba against the WORST DEFENSE in the league.

    What a sad day that will be if West Ham with David Moyes and Jesse Lingard finish above us.

    What's the odds Newcastle score first? Thinking a Longstaff special.

    Some have little patience in new signings. Simliar was said about Fred until he became a regular starter.

    Donny would have featured today but for injury and could have been a useful option against a low block team.

    Wasn't working out for Jessie at United, needed a change of scenery to find his form of 2018 and I'm delighted to see he's done that.

    Well we seem to love giving up the first & early goal to relegation fodder

    West Brom scored in the 2nd min last week
    Sheffield scored in the 23rd min & 5th min
    Fulham scored in the 5th min
    Newcastle got an OG in the 2nd min

    3 of those have come in the last few weeks. So it very much seems to be written in the stars for them to get an early goal and park the bus even more than they would have and now we are without our most in form striker Cavani and McTominay who has 3 goals in his last 4 games. Not to mention we struggled with this same lot for 85 minutes the last time before scoring 2 goals in the last 5 minutes of regular time.

    With Leicester and more than likely Citeh winning fully expecting points dropped here. It's become the United way, sadly

    If Martial starts over Dan, then it’s just unfair. Team selections should be based on form, not name. Come on Ole.

    None at all, it would be daft to start him, and Ole won't. Not his sort of game.
    Could be a game for Juan Mata, though. He has enough guile and finesse to make the difference in and around the box.

    Think he should be used more when we're up against the low-block sides.

    I know we have a few injuries, but so do they with Wilson, Schar plus a few others out so we SHOULD have enough to beat them.
