Newcastle United are set to face a recovering Manchester United this evening, at St. James Park, following the Mancs 6-1 thrashing from Tottenham Hotspur before the international break.
Prior to the break, Newcastle had secured a 3-1 win over Burnley.
The Premier League game, which shouldn’t be underestimated, could see both teams parking the bus with their hands firmly on the handbrake.
In the game against Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side, Steve Bruce could run a 5-4-1 formation like he had in his 1-1 draw against Spurs.
The Magpies have only won one game at home this season, in their game against Burnley.
With a recovering Manchester side, Newcastle may go into the game with high hopes to win.
However, this is easier said than done.
Manchester have had a dismal start to the season, winning one in their three games.
But Solskjær has been proven to tighten the reigns to correct a crumbling united.
Newcastle could come away with the win in this game.
But to come away with another win on their belt, they have to put in their best efforts.
Manchester will come into the game with something to prove
