Team News:

Newcastle have had the busiest treatment room in the Premier League over the international break, but Bruce could be boosted by a number of players recovering in time for this match.

Injury doubts Allan Saint-Maximin, Jamaal Lascelles, Jamal Lewis, DeAndre Yedlin, Paul Dummett and Ciaran Clark are all now back in training, but at varying degrees of fitness.

The fact that five of those players are defenders will be of concern to Bruce, who is still without first-choice goalkeeper Martin Dubravka too.

Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie are also still sidelined, while Matty Longstaff is not expected to recover in time for this match.

Callum Wilson, who is aiming to become the first player to score as many as five goals in his first five Premier League games for Newcastle since Loic Remy in 2013, will lead the line once again.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Darlow; Manquillo, Hayden, Lascelles, Fernandez, Lewis; Saint-Maximin, Shelvey, Hendrick, Joelinton; Wilson

Manchester United
Deadline-day signing Cavani is not available to make his debut in this match as he self-isolates as a precaution following his arrival from France.

The Uruguayan could instead make his debut against his former club Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League next week, but for now his absence leaves Man United short up front.

Anthony Martial is suspended following his red card against Spurs, meaning that Odion Ighalo could finally be handed his first Premier League start for the club, although Marcus Rashford or Mason Greenwood could also lead the line.

Bruno Fernandes has been given the green light to play amid fears that his Portugal teammate Cristiano Ronaldo's positive coronavirus test would force him into self-isolation too.

Axel Tuanzebe is nearing a return to fitness, but Man United's limited centre-back options mean that Maguire is unlikely to be given the time out of the spotlight which many have suggested he needs following his England dismissal on Wednesday.

The international break may have saved others from being dropped after the Spurs defeat, with the likes of Paul Pogba and David de Gea expected to keep their places.

Luke Shaw may also start, with Telles unlikely to be thrown straight into the lineup having only had a short time with his new teammates after international duty.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ighalo

Manchester United Premier League form: LWL

Prediction: Newcastle United 1-1 Manchester United
