Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Manchester United vs Alkmaar

Manchester United travel to Newcastle as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side look to put an end to their miserable record away from home.

United have now gone 10 away games without a win – stretching back to their famous victory against PSG – after a dire 0-0 draw against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League on Thursday.

Steve Bruce’s wilting side are hoping to capitalise on that weakness as the Magpies look to alleviate the growing gloom surrounding the club that’s left them with just one win in their opening seven games.

A 5-0 thrashing last week at Leicester compounded the sense of unease about the club as talks of Mike Ashley’s desire to sell once against providing the backdrop to their season.

Here is everything you need to know:

Line-ups

Newcastle: Dubravka, Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Clark, Willems, Longstaff, Longstaff, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Almiron.

Manchester United: De Gea, Dalot, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Young, Fred, McTominay, Andreas, Mata, James, Rashford

When is it?

The match kicks off at 4.30pm BST on Sunday at the St James’ Park.

How can I watch it?

The match is being shown in the UK on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. You can stream the game online via Sky Go or the Sky Sports website, providing you are a Sky Sports subscriber.

Prediction

Manchester United are having a terrible time right now and the home faithful will be up for this one. Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United.
