What to Know
Manchester United needs to shore up a defense that is allowing 1.88 goals per matchup before their match on Sunday. They and Newcastle United are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 9 a.m. ET at Old Trafford. Both clubs seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
Man United dodged a bullet on Sunday, finishing off Everton 2-1. The Manchester United offense checked out after the first half but had enough goals banked to take the game anyway.
Meanwhile, Newcastle took their contest against Brentford on Saturday by a conclusive 5-1 score.
The Red Devils won their first match against the Magpies 4-1 last season, but Newcastle managed a 1-1 tie in the next match. Check back on CBSSports.com to find out if they can go a step further this time and collect a win.
After a hard-fought win against Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia on Thursday in the Europa League, Premier League action returns to Old Trafford as Manchester United host Newcastle United in a six-pointer fixture. Despite the team showing positive signs under new manager Erik Ten Hag, United are improving quite slowly. A few setbacks in the attacking and defensive departments have added uncertainty to the ‘process’ the Dutch manager wants fans to ‘trust.’
While the early accolade of terming Manchester United as ‘clear favourites’ for the Omonia match seemed exaggerated, they did find a way through in the last minute of added time courtesy of a late McTominay effort which found the net past Omonia goalkeeper Francis Uzoho who saved everything but faltered in the last.

The Frenchman felt uncomfortable during the first half of the win over Everton, and was replaced by Cristiano Ronaldo who scored the winner in a 2-1 triumph.
It was another injury setback for Martial, who has looked in fine form whenever on the pitch this term, and work is continuing at Carrington in order to ensure his availability for a tough test against the in-form Magpies.
Manchester United have won seven out of their last ten games against Newcastle United.
