Newcastle United face a tough encounter this week against Manchester United, who will be bolstered by Cristiano Ronaldo's likely first game back for the Red Devils.

So far, Newcastle have earned one point from three league matches.

In their last fixture they were so close to obtaining their first three points of the campaign as Allan Saint-Maximin put them 2-1 up over Southampton in the first minute of added time.

However, they couldn't hold on, with a James Ward-Prowse penalty levelling things up.

Now the Magpies are travelling to Old Trafford to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

After that, their next two fixtures see them face Leeds United and Watford.

If you’re not attending the game in person, you can still follow along elsewhere.
