Preview: United Women v Newcastle

Wednesday 10 January 2024 12:18

Manchester United Women return to action this weekend, as we enter the 2023/24 Adobe Women’s FA Cup at Leigh Sports Village.

Marc Skinner’s side welcome FA Premier Division North side Newcastle United on Sunday 14 January for a 12:00 GMT kick-off. 

It is the first time these two sides have met, and with a passionate fan base backing each team, it is set to be an electric encounter.  

Ahead of Sunday’s showpiece, here are the key things to know…

Toone wins December's Player of the Month


Ella has been rewarded for her fine performances in the final month of 2023.


Kicking off at 12:00 GMT, the game will be shown live on The FA Player. 

We will air live radio commentary on and in the United App, where we will also provide regular updates throughout the game followed by a report.

United's long-term absentees Gabby George, Emma Watson and Jess Simpson remain unavailable for selection due to their knee injuries. Aoife Mannion, meanwhile, has returned to training on grass as she steps up her return. 

Hinata Miyazawa will also miss the match, after fracturing a foot while on international duty with Japan in early December. However, her fellow midfielder Irene Guerrero made her return from injury in our mid-season friendly victory over PSV Eindhoven in Malta, and is therefore in contention to be involved. 

Newcastle, meanwhile, are set to be without first-team trio Jodie Bartle, Keira Skelton, and Becky Ferguson, with the latter sustaining an injury at the end of 2023. 


Newcastle United became a full-time professional side prior to the 2023/24 campaign, and have not looked back since. The north-east club are storming the FA Premier Division North, with 10 wins and one draw in their 11 league outings, sitting five points clear at the top ahead of the restart.

They come into Sunday’s game in high-flying form, on the back of 10 consecutive victories. Becky Langley’s side put five past FA Cup third round opponents Stoke City in early December, before sticking 11 past Fylde and seven past Halifax either side of the new year.
