Manchester United suffered a terrible defeat at the weekend at the hands of bottom of the table Watford. Now, we are seven points behind Chelsea, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
Today, the Red Devils will collide against Newcastle United, who have won three of their last four games in the Premier League.
As far as the team news is concerned, Solskjaer has claimed that record signing Paul Pogba could start (Sky Sports) vs the Magpies on Boxing Day. We have badly missed the French international and if fit, he must start in the No. 10 role.
Martial was poor vs the Hornets and therefore, Greenwood should replace him to start in the center forward role in front of Pogba. The likes of Rashford and James should start in the wide attacking positions.
Scott McTominay and Brazilian international Fred could start in the center of the park for Man Utd.
The back-line should remain unchanged but first choice shot stopper David De Gea, who gifted the opening goal to Watford at the weekend, should be replaced. In his place, Argentine star Romero should return to start in the goal.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Newcastle United:
