Manchester United return from a Covid-19-induced break with a trip to Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday night.
The Red Devils ‘last two games have been postponed due to an outbreak at the club, but will finally return to the pitch after more than two weeks’ absence.
During that time, Ralf Rangnick’s team has lost ground to Arsenal and Tottenham in the battle for a top four and must start taking points on the board again.
United are undefeated since Ole Gunnar Solskjaers fired in November but need to get going again. This is how they could line up at St James’ Park.

David de Gea (GK) – Has been one of United’s most trusted artists this season and looks back on his blushing best.
Diogo Dalot (RB) – By providing at least something in the attack, Dalot has quickly entrenched Aaron Wan-Bissaka under Rangnick’s guidance.
Eric Bailly (CB) – With Victor Lindelof and Raphael Varane in doubt, AFCON-bound Bailly could start.
Harry Maguire (CB) – The club captain whether you like it or not.
Alex Telles (LB) – Has looked decent when he has been with this season and Rangnick has so far preferred the Brazilian over Luke Shaw.
Scott McTominay (DM) – His physicality and work ethic make him quite difficult to let go of at the moment, especially with Paul Pogba still away.
Fred (DM) – Has been sensational the last month or so and looked to be reborn again after Solskjaer’s departure.
Jadon Sancho (AM) – Began to find his feet back in England just as United were suffering from Covid problems.
Bruno Fernandes (AM) – United’s boss creators should have a lot of fun trying to open up one of the league’s most porous defenses.

Marcus Rashford (ST) – Has not looked really sharp this season despite the fact that he finally underwent shoulder surgery. Could do with a great performance here with Mason Greenwood breathing down his neck.
Cristiano Ronaldo (ST) – His second United debut came in the reverse match earlier this season, which inevitably got a brace. Something behind in the race for the gold boot and could do with some goals here.
