Manchester United vs. Newcastle United -Probable Lineups

In what promises to be an exciting clash at Old Trafford, Manchester United will face off against Newcastle United in their final home game of the 2023-24 Premier League season on Wednesday evening.

Following their recent 1-0 defeat to Arsenal, Erik ten Hag’s side is eager to bounce back, while Newcastle United managed to salvage a point in a 1-1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Despite some setbacks, Manchester United saw the return of Scott McTominay to action in their last game, although Lisandro Martinez, Bruno Fernandes, and Marcus Rashford remained sidelined. However, there’s hope for their return soon. On the flip side, Amad Diallo, who had to leave the field with a knee issue, reassured fans of his swift recovery post-match.

Unfortunately, Manchester United still grapple with injuries to key players like Tyrell Malacia, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Mason Mount, and Luke Shaw. Anthony Martial’s prolonged absence continues, despite his presence in training sessions.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United saw no major injury concerns during their recent fixture against Brighton. While goalkeeper Nick Pope remained on the bench, Kieran Trippier’s appearance as a substitute hints at a possible start in the upcoming match.

However, Callum Wilson’s hamstring tightness may cast doubt on his availability for the trip to Old Trafford. Fabian Schar is progressing well from a thigh injury, but Steve Bruce may opt to give him more time to recover. The absence of players like Matt Targett, Lewis Miley, Joe Willock, Jamaal Lascelles, Sven Botman, and the suspended Sandro Tonali poses a challenge for Newcastle’s lineup. Nonetheless, options like Harvey Barnes, Miguel Almiron, and Joelinton provide depth in attacking positions.

Here’s a possible line-up for both teams:

Manchester United: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Kambwala, Evans, Dalot; McTominay, Mainoo; Antony (Fernandes if fit), Garnacho; Hojlund

Newcastle United: Dubravka; Trippier, Krafth, Burn, Hall; Anderson, Guimaraes, Longstaff; Almiron, Isak, Gordon
