How to follow United v Newcastle live

Friday 14 October 2022 13:00

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon, bidding to continue our recent rich run of form against Newcastle United (14:00 BST).

Having successfully seen off Omonia Nicosia in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday evening, it's another quick turnaround for Erik ten Hag's men who have an action-packed October to contend with. 

Recording three straight victories has been an impressive response from United since the derby defeat to Manchester City at the beginning of the month, and the Reds will be looking to make it four on the spin when Eddie Howe's side visit us this weekend. 

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game…


Our clash with the Magpies will not be broadcast live on TV in the UK, with Sky Sports opting to cover Aston Villa v Chelsea and then Liverpool v Manchester City instead.

You can, however, watch exclusive build-up on club media from 12:55 BST. MUTV's coverage, which also includes a half-time show and live radio commentary, will also be available on and in the United App.

Team news will arrive at 13:00 BST, one hour before kick-off at 14:00, so make sure you stay across our official media throughout the day.


Donny van de Beek, Aaron Wan Bissaka and Harry Maguire look set to miss Sunday's game, while Anthony Martial remains a doubt heading into the weekend.

Fit-again Raphael Varane has recently made the bench, in the games against Everton and Omonia, while Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez have performed well as a pairing in his absence.

Scott McTominay will miss the game through suspension, after accumulating five yellow cards so far this season. On-loan goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is ineligible to face his parent club.

Erik's team news update for Sunday


The latest from the boss as the Magpies will be missing a striker for the Old Trafford clash.


Currently managed by former Bournemouth boss Howe, renewed optimsm has surrounded St. James Park since October 2021 when the news broke about a successful takeover from the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia.

Posting a solid 11th-placed finish last season, Newcastle heavily backed their 44-year-old boss in the summer transfer window, bringing in the likes of Alexander Isak, Sven Botman and Nick Pope.

The Reds will no doubt be heavily tested by a side now looking to kick on after starting the season strongly.

McTominay: This victory is massive


Scott says the sights are still on topping the group after his late show against Omonia.


Entering into the clash without a defeat since August, Newcastle will hope to continue their form in Sunday's showdown at the Theatre of Dreams. They impressively defeated Thomas Frank's Brentford side 5-1 last weekend with Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes scoring twice.

Miguel Almiron is the team's current top goalscorer this season with four strikes to his name, whilst tricky winger Allan Saint-Maximin will no doubt be one to watch across the afternoon.


The two teams have met 173 times in the past, with the Reds coming out on top in 90 of them.

You have to go back to December 2013 to find the last time Newcastle won at Old Trafford and last season's game at M16 was an emphatic 4-1 home win, featuring the return of Cristiano Ronaldo who found the net twice.

Edinson Cavani's leveller ensured a share of the spoils on Tyneside, with the scores ending 1-1 after Saint-Maximin had struck early on.
