Manchester United and Newcastle United meet in a vital fixture in the chase for European places.

The pair sit separated by two places and three points in the Premier League table, with Chelsea — in action against Brighton on Wednesday — also in the mix for sixth spot with just two games left in the season.

Back-to-back defeats have dealt Erik ten Hag’s side a blow having been well placed, allowing Newcastle to push past them.

A win at Old Trafford would leave the visitors in a strong position ahead of a trip to Brentford on the final day.

Team news

Lisandro Martinez is set to return to the Manchester United squad in a much-needed boost to Erik ten Hag’s defensive options. Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes will be assessed after missing the defeat against Arsenal, with Willy Kambwala also a doubt.

Both Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson missed Newcastle training ahead of the Manchester United game, potentially leaving Eddie Howe with problems up front. Howe suggested that Isak could yet be available if his illness eases, and Fabian Schar is moving closer to a return from a hamstring issue.
