Newcastle vs Man United: Premier League preview
The chaos at Tottenham has opened up the Toon’s path to a top-four finish and they will even leapfrog the Red Devils with a win on Tyneside.
Eddie Howe’s side are also seeking revenge following their Carabao Cup final defeat to Man United, which came amid a bad run of form that they have since put behing them courtesy of back-to-back wins.
As for the visitors, a spate of cup successes have come against the backdrop of some tricky performances in the Premier League.
With Marcus Rashford an injury worry and Casemiro banned, Erik ten Hag faces arguably one of the toughest away games of the season knowing that his team’s top-four place is far from secure.

Nick Pope is being monitored after withdrawing from the England squad with a knock while Anthony Gordon (ankle), Ryan Fraser and Sven Botman (illness) are doubts. Emil Krafth (knee) is out long-term.
Marcus Rashford (toe) is the big injury concern for United but the winger is back in training having pulled out of international duty.
