St James' Park prepares to host Newcastle vs Manchester United in the Premier League this weekend. This is a fixture which has served Newcastle well in the last five meetings, particularly at home but Eddie Howe will not be complacent and lineup in the strongest possible way. It's important to address, though, that this may not be entirely possible since we have almost a full team of key players ruled out through injury.

Looking at the competition, though, it could be a real advantage for us. We reported earlier of the Champions League woes which Manchester United are set to carry into this match, with poor management from Erik ten Hag resulting in fatigue and despair for some of their key player ahead of our meeting.

Ten Hag has dropped a major lineup hint within his reflection of United's Champions League despair. One of the players who was at fault for the dropping of two points, which now makes it increasingly difficult for the Red Devils to make it out of the group stage, was Andre Onana. Some goalkeeping blunders on the night was ultimately what cost United, leaving many of their fans to ponder why he was even signed, for such a big fee too.

As per Chronicle Live, Ten Hag has stood by his Cameroonian goalkeeper, hinting that he is likely to start at St James' Park this weekend. Given the instinct for fear which Alexander Isak has, this could be a major boost for the Sweden international, who is eyeing this game as a potential goal fest.

""This team is good, all the players in the squad are good and deserve the best to play for Manchester United because they are brilliant players. And that counts for the whole squad.""
