4-2-3-1: Man Utd’s strongest possible XI vs Newcastle United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Man Utd boss

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:


  1. I think Greenwood should better be used as a sub for now. Martial should operate from the left wing side, then Rashford as a top nine.
    When we sign a center forward, Radford and Martial will be playing from the wings depending on their performances.
    At the centre back, we need a strong partner for Gary Maguire. Lindelof is weak and loses concentration many times.
    Goal keeping department is another area that needs attention, De Gea has been making unpardonable mistakes in recent times.
    I think is high time Romero called to duty, that will make the goal keeping department more competitive.
    Anything less than 1st four will be failure a for Man U this season.

  2. Yes Greenwood is a good bargain but let him still be a super-sub to our team and martial should retain is place: as for Paul Pogba that no. 10 is good let’s see why he can produce from that role; then David Degea felling from grace to grass complaining that United don’t have a world class player anymore should top his game and rewrite his name again.
