Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Newcastle United

Sports Mole rounds up all of Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Newcastle United.

Manchester United will be hoping to use their impressive Europa League victory over Real Sociedad as a catalyst to kick on in the Premier League when they take on Newcastle United.

The Red Devils thrashed Sociedad 4-0 in Thursday's last-32 first leg and now switch focus to Sunday's league clash with Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men enter the weekend's games second in the table, but they are now 10 points adrift of Manchester City after the leaders won their game in hand in midweek.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's injury and suspension news ahead of the visit of Newcastle.
