Manchester United are sitting just outside of the Champions League places and debate continues to rumble on with regard to whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to take the team forward.

You could argue that the Norwegian has tried to rebuild the squad in the wake of some short-term recruitment that didn’t prove particularly effective, with the front three of Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford proving to be a particular highlight this season.

Harry Maguire has also slotted well into central defence after arriving for a staggering sum of money, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka is arguably the best right-back in the Premier League.

If United are to qualify for Europe’s premier competition, then they will surely have to win games like this and Solskjaer will want a commanding victory over a team who beat them at St James’ Park.

Newcastle are currently doing enough to stay afloat in the top flight, although they have lost six of their nine games on the road and recently drew blanks at Villa Park and Turf Moor.

Steve Bruce will return to his former stomping ground and certainly set up his team in a defensive fashion considering it would be a brilliant outcome to land a point, although it looks a tall order.

Allan Saint-Maximin’s absence is a big problem in terms of providing counter-attacking penetration, with Manchester United looking a respectable price to win the game without conceding.

The home side should control the game for the most part and completely boss possession against the Magpies, with United winning eight of their previous thirteen clashes and this victory ratio is enough for us to side with them.
