Manchester United v Newcastle: match preview

When Manchester United fire they can blow opponents away, as Real Sociedad found out, so Newcastle will hardly relish this visit to Old Trafford after Thursday’s 4-0 demolition of the Spanish club. United are 10 points behind Manchester City so if Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side are to retain any hope of a title challenge they have to start a long winning run. Jamie Jackson
