After their previous two Premier League matches against Brentford and Brighton were postponed due Covid, Manchester United return to action against Newcastle.

Raphael Varane is back from injury and straight into the starting lineup alongside Harry Maguire, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford partnering each other up front.

Mason Greenwood is preferred to Jadon Sancho, while Scott McTominay and Fred are trusted again in midfield. Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles keep their places at full-back.

Ralf Rangnick revealed pre-match that, after having only 11 players available during their Covid issues, he now has virtually a full squad to choose from ahead of their game against Newcastle.

Paul Pogba is the only United player still absent with both Edinson Cavani and Raphael Varane returning to the squad.

“Yes, as you know, we had last week, the last training session on Thursday, on that day we had eight outfield players and three goalkeepers and then we closed down the training ground for four days in order to break the chain,” said Rangnick on Thursday.

“Today was the third day of training this week, we started on Tuesday, we trained yesterday and today.

“Today we had 25 outfield players. Paul Pogba is the only one missing, everyone else was on board. The development in the last week was extremely positive.”

Man United XI: De Gea, Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Telles, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Greenwood, Rashford, Ronaldo

Subs: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Shaw, Jones, Matic, Van de Beek, Elanga, Sancho, Cavani
