Boss expects Tyneside test

Thursday night.

"I watched Newcastle last night and they played a few of their squad and left a few others out," Sir Alex said. "But they still won convincingly. It was a good performance and a good result for them.

"Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse both have good scoring records. They rested Ba last night and played Shola Ameobi. I'm not sure what combination it will be on Sunday. Ba and Ameobi are both strong, while Cisse has scored some fantastic goals for them. The third goal last night was excellent."
