It must be a long time since Manchester United fans last saw their team play a game.

The Red Devils are finally back on the pitch against Newcastle United after a pair of postponements from COVID-19, the club’s first league game since December 11. Mostly recovered from its own COVID-19 epidemic, Manchester United is now aiming to climb the rankings.

Manchester United could sit seventh in the Premier League table following the layoff, but the Red Devils are firmly in contention for a Champions League spot. While it hasn’t always been pretty for the Red Devils under Ralf Rangnick, the team’s performances have shown clear structure and intention, securing 1-0 wins over Crystal Palace and Norwich City in their last two. matches before the unexpected break.

Newcastle, meanwhile, would be happy to take some time off – the festive events have been anything but. An absolutely ruthless matchmaking glove over the holiday season resulted in complete defeats to Leicester City, Manchester City and Liverpool by a combined score of 11-1.

The schedule is easing after the Manchester United game, but it will be important for the Magpies to establish a base to build on ahead of a key stretch in January and February that will almost surely decide their fate in the Premier League.

Sporting News will follow the event live and provide scores updates, commentary and highlights as they occur.

7 ‘- Newcastle – Saint-Maximin

(All Eastern hours)

12 ‘ – Joelinton has a chance and puts it just right. If you couldn’t see the jerseys you wouldn’t know which team was in the relegation zone and which was difficult for a Champions League position. Clearly there is rust that the Red Devils need to get rid of.

seven’ – GOAL! Newcastle!

Sean Longstaff absolutely steals the ball from Raphael Varane and immediately feeds Allan Saint-Maximin who produces a brilliant solo effort. The Frenchman is a one-man team of wreckers, slicing through the top of the box and delivering a fabulous effort while falling that left De Gea rooted in place.

6 ‘- Jonjo Shelvey, the hottest and coldest player in the world (looks like) absolutely gets robbed in midfield and then fouls. A good start for Newcastle overall, but Shelvey can’t make such mistakes if the Magpies are to survive today.

1 ‘- We are on our way! Newcastle almost had a chance within seconds, but a ball for Ryan Fraser was just too deep and the luck evaporated. I expect this to be a suspicious opening of about 15 minutes.

2:51 p.m. ET: Analysts at NBC’s pre-match show studio have suggested Newcastle will need to win every other home stretch to stay fit this season. Not quite sure if this is * that * intimidating, as there are quite a few bad sides in the Premier League this season, and the 40-point mark for safety is surely closer to 33 as a result. But it puts the situation they are currently facing into perspective, and it will be a daunting task to achieve security. Spending in winter comes with many risks.

2:45 p.m. ET: Rangnick has confirmed that Victor Lindelof has tested positive for COVID-19 and therefore cannot participate for the foreseeable future, hence his absence from the Manchester United squad.

2:03 p.m. ET: Queues are available. Full queues below.

Eddie Howe is making eight huge changes from the Newcastle side who were beaten by Manchester City last time, mixing up most of their defense and moving to a 4-2-3-1. Manchester United have a nearly 100% fit squad which means Raphael Varane returns to center-back, while Marcus Rashford steps away to allow Mason Greenwood to team up with Cristiano Ronaldo. Jadon Sancho is the intruder, left on the bench.

1:36 p.m. ET: Your game day schedule at St. James Park, if that’s your type of thing.

1:33 p.m. ET: Boxing Day was a goal scoring record. Will this match follow in those footsteps or will it be less explosive?

1:25 p.m. ET: It’s not Boxing Day per se, but Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has his first glimpse of management over the Christmas break, and he’s looking forward to it.

1:00 p.m. ET: As the Newcastle boss appears focused on getting his squad something to savor from an otherwise fully Grinch’d festive period, Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick explains how he managed to keep the squad going fit despite significant disruption from COVID-19.

1:00 p.m. ET: Eddie Howe saw Newcastle’s heyday in the late 90s again when the Magpies faced Manchester United for the top positions. The match does not quite reach these levels as each occupies opposite ends of the leaderboard.

Newcastle vs Manchester United line-ups

Newcastle make eight huge changes since the heavy loss to Manchester City, the main one being a comeback for Jonjo Shelvey, who has struggled with a lack of fitness and been the victim of some load management by the manager Eddie Howe, but recovered enough to start today. Shelvey had already played all but six minutes since returning from a two-month calf injury in late October.

Federico Fernandez and Jamal Lewis are both ruled out with thigh problems, while Paul Dummett has resumed training but is not ready to see the match minutes. Isaac Hayden is suspended for accumulating yellow cards which means Sean Longstaff is presented sideways. Allan Saint-Maximin is back in the starting lineup after coming off the bench in the last game due to a blow.

Newcastle starting eleven (4-2-3-1): Dubravka (GK); Krafth, Lascelles, Schar, Manquillo; Shelvey, Longstaff; Fraser, Joelintin, Saint-Maximin; Wilson.

Manchester United have faced a COVID-19 outbreak in recent weeks, but that now seems to be a thing of the past, with no known player currently having a positive COVID-19 test or persistent symptoms. This means manager Ralf Rangnick has a choice between a physically fit squad, with only Paul Pogba still waiting to fully recover from his groin injury in November.

Anthony Martial, a potential transfer start in January, does not bench, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka returns among the substitutes. Raphael Varane has also been available since his thigh injury at the end of November and is starting.

Left-back Luke Shaw hasn’t played since late November as well, and he’s on the bench with Alex Telles maintaining his starting left-back spot.

Man United starting eleven (4-4-2): De Gea (GK); Such, Maguire, Varane, Dalot; McTominay, Fred, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo, Greenwood.

Manchester United are obviously a big favorite, but not like heavy as one would expect against a team that rushes goals through their Premier League schedule; the COVID-19 layoff appears to be weighing on punters.

The Red Devils haven’t played for two weeks, and they’re also going to have a very difficult schedule to navigate in the coming months. Because of this, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Rangnick play a little more cautiously in games where the Red Devils don’t need a full frontal assault to collect all three points.

We would have hoped for a bigger differential on the handicap, so the tastiest option might be the shortfall total. With three games in seven days, Man United could choose to deal with the game – and its energies – against an opponent they should easily dominate. There are more difficult games on the horizon.

Take: Less than 2.5 goals in total (+125)

Prediction: Newcastle 0, Manchester United 1

  • Moneyline: Newcastle +600 / Draw +380 / Man United -220
  • Propagated: Man United -1.5 (+140) / Newcastle +1.5 (-160)
  • O / U 2.5 total goals: Over -150 / Under +125
  • The two teams score: Yes -130 / No +100
