Manchester United VS Newcastle United

Louis van Gaal will be confident United will continue to improve on their solid start to the season. With Wayne Rooney misfiring, the manager will more than likely lean on the fast-flourishing attacking threat of Memphis Depay to break down Newcastle. Steve McClaren will be conscious that Newcastle’s defending has to improve, after Jefferson Montero tore them apart last Saturday, if they are to secure a positive result from the encounter.
