Sanchez, Pogba & Martial Start: Manchester United vs Newcastle Possible Line-up

Manchester United will take a shot trip to St James’ Park to take on newly promoted side Newcastle United on Sunday.

The Magpies are currently struggling in the league and have only registered two victories in their previous 16 league outings.

In an attempt to get better, they are likely going to put their hundred percent  energy into weekend’s game so as to get at least a point from the Red Devils in order to avoid fallen into the relegation zone.

United are currently second on the league table with 56 points and five points lead over rivals and third-placed Liverpool.

Aside from Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic who are sidelined due to injury, Jose Mourinho has a full squad to choose from.

David de Gea is undisputed in United team and the Spaniard is expected to retain his place in the starting spot.

Marcos Rojo is expected to pair Chris Smalling at the centre of defense while Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia will likely retain their spot at the left and right back respectively.

Record signing Paul Pogba was benched in United last game against Huddersfield. However, the powerful box-to-box midfielder is likely going to return back to starting eleven this weekend.

Pogba will likely pair Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard at the midfield.

New signing Alexis Sanchez scored his first goal as a United player in last week 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town.

The Chilean is expected to retained his spot at the left-wing while Anthony Martial comes in for Juan Mata.

Here is our predicted line-up.
