Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Manchester United could line up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Newcastle United.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag will be boosted by the return of Marcus Rashford for Saturday's Premier League battle with Newcastle United at St James' Park.

The Englishman missed Wednesday's 3-3 Champions League draw with Galatasaray due to a ban, but he is free to take his rightful place in the Red Devils attack, which is more than can be said of Jadon Sancho amid his club suspension.

Lisandro Martinez (foot), Casemiro (thigh), Jonny Evans (thigh), Christian Eriksen (knee), Amad Diallo (knee) and Tyrell Malacia (knee) will all miss out through injury again, while Mason Mount (calf) is uncertain, but Ten Hag should not be averse to a few changes from their midweek disappointment.

Andre Onana's spot in goal remains safe despite two Hakim Ziyech free-kick howlers, and with Raphael Varane still out of favour, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire ought to shield the under-fire Cameroonian once more.

The fit-again Luke Shaw should be no in danger of losing his place at left-back either, but Diogo Dalot is poised to come back in for Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right-hand side of the backline.

Kobbie Mainoo's reward for a stellar display against Everton was a demotion to the bench in Istanbul, but the 18-year-old is in line to replace Sofyan Amrabat alongside Scott McTominay, who netted his fourth goal of the season on Wednesday evening.

Following a wonder goal against Everton and stunning opener versus Galatasaray, Alejandro Garnacho has made himself undroppable, and with Bruno Fernandes and Rasmus Hojlund also stalwarts of the attack, Antony may be the one to make way for the returning Rashford.

Manchester United possible starting lineup: Onana; Dalot, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
