0 2 months ago

MANCHESTER UNITED will be without Edinson Cavani for this weekend’s clash against Newcastle.

But Alex Telles could make his Red Devils debut following his £15.3million move from Porto.

Here’s one way the Red Devils could start against Newcastle

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were thrashed 6-1 by Spurs before the international break.

United, who are 16th in the table, know the trip to St. James’ Park is a must-win match.

But they will be without Cavani after he joined them on a transfer deadline day.

The veteran striker remains in self-isolation – but will be available for the upcoming game against Paris Saint-Germain.

Starting from the back, David De Gea is set to keep his spot between the sticks.

Calls to drop Harry Maguire have grown over the international break after he was sent off for England.

Rio Ferdinand has urged Solskjaer to rest the centre-back following his shaky spell.

But the club captain has reportedly pleaded with Solskjaer to keep him in the team.


Solskjaer has claimed the defender picked up a ‘knock’ before he received his red card.

Should he start, Maguire could be at the back with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Telles.

Bruno Fernandes is likely to keep his spot despite allegedly ripping into the manager and his team-mates during half-time of the defeat to Spurs.
