Man Utd v NUFC Team News

The news preceding the game at Old Trafford was who was missing for us and who was returning for them.

We have Jamaal Lascelles, Mikel Merino and Christian Atsu missing out of the players that have played the most with Paul Dummett a long term absentee.

They had Pogba and Ibrahimovic missing as their big players but Pogba returns to their starting line up and 'Zlatan' makes the bench.

Taking Lascelles place in the side is Ciaran Clark who did well last season and is dependable with Isaac Hayden continuing in the place where Merino plays. The biggest but most obvious move is the replacing of Jacob Murphy into Christian Atsu's left wing position as the pressure is off and he'll be told just to show people what he can do.

Up front sees us go with two again with Joselu being furthest forward and Dwight Gayle playing just behind.

The teams line up as follows:
