Stadium Old Trafford
Referee  Robert James (England)
Goal Scorer:

Manchester United
While all of Scott McTominay, Lisandro Martinez, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford were back in full training last week, only the former made his comeback in the loss to Arsenal; the latter two were late withdrawals, while Martinez is still getting back up to speed with the rest of his teammates but is looking good for a return here.

The Red Devils were handed another concern on Sunday as Amad Diallo - an effervescent force on his first Premier League start of the season - limped off in the second half with a knee problem, but he played down his concern after the match and should be fine for Wednesday.

That is more than can be said for Tyrell Malacia (knee), Victor Lindelof (thigh), Harry Maguire (muscle), Raphael Varane (muscle), Anthony Martial (groin), Mason Mount (unspecified) and Luke Shaw (thigh), while all of Fernandes, Rashford and Willy Kambwala - just out of the treatment room - require assessment before kickoff.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Kambwala, Evans, Dalot; McTominay, Mainoo; Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho; Hojlund

As for Newcastle, Alexander Isak was hampered by an illness in the draw with Brighton, in which first-choice goalkeeper Nick Pope watched on as an unused substitute for the second straight match after his lengthy recovery from a shoulder injury. Kieran Trippier did make it off the bench, though, and is a candidate to start this one.

However, Callum Wilson sat out the weekend's stalemate with hamstring tightness and is touch-and-go for the trip to Old Trafford alongside Isak - who is in with a better chance of being available - while Fabian Schar (thigh) is making strong progress, but Howe has not guaranteed his availability.

Matt Targett (Achilles), Lewis Miley (back), Joe Willock (calf), Jamaal Lascelles (knee) and Sven Botman (knee) are still absent alongside the banned Sandro Tonali, but Howe is blessed with competent options for change up top, including Harvey Barnes, Miguel Almiron and the fit-again Joelinton.
Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Trippier, Krafth, Burn, Hall; Anderson, Guimaraes, Longstaff; Almiron, Isak, Gordon

Prediction: Manchester United 1-1 Newcastle United
