Manchester United have named their team to face Newcastle this evening.
With Anthony Martial suspended and Edinson Cavani ineligible to make his debut following quarantine regulations, pressure is on Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford to score the goals which will provide a boost to United following the harrowing 6-1 defeat to Spurs two weeks ago.
“We [me and Marcus] have worked on some extra finishing and I’ve worked all week on my shooting so I’m sure we’ll be able to get the job done,” Greenwood told United’s official website. “We both know our capabilities and we both know how to play with each other so it should be good. Also though the rest of the team can score, we’ve got players from the full-back and midfield areas who can score. It just depends what team the manager picks and I’m sure whoever gets selected can get us goals.”
“We’ve had a week to get our work done and we’ve worked with the boys who have come back from international duty and it’s a good place, even if it might not seem like it… it’s a good place to be and we’re getting back on our feet and I’m sure we’ll do our job against Newcastle. We know they’re a tough opposition and going away to any Premier League club is hard. But I’m sure we’ll be able to do our job. We’ve looked at some of their weak points and some of the positives, but I’m sure we’ll go there and do our best.”
United lost at St James’ Park in a desperately poor performance this time last year. Another performance of that standard could spell big trouble for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
