There’s little doubt that both Manchester United and Newcastle will look to bounce back from disappointing midweek defeats when they clash at Old Trafford in Saturday’s early kick off.
David Moyes first clash against former club Everton ended in a 1-0 defeat thanks to a late goal from Bryan Oviedo. The result ended a run of 12 games without defeat in all competition.
The defeat also meant that it is now three league games since United last won and leaves them languishing 9th in the table, 12 points behind leaders Arsenal.
A defeat at Newcastle would all but all rule United out of the title race and coach Ryan Giggs insists that he side must put the defeat to Everton behind them
“We have to pick ourselves up” said the 40 year old.
“We can’t feel sorry for ourselves for too long. We have a home game against Newcastle on Saturday and hopefully we will get a different result.
“We were on a pretty good run. We just have to get over this disappointment now and get on another.
“The gap is bridgeable,”
Moyes will welcome back Phil Jones to the side after he missed the clash with the Toffee’s midweek due to suspension with under-fire Marouane Fellaini likely to drop to the bench.
Michael Carrick is still side-lined with an Achilles injury while Robin Van Persie is not ready for a return to first team action.
The Dutch star has missed United’s last four games and despite Moyes’ proclaimation that the injury is not serious the Scot has admitted he does not know when his star man will return.
“I don’t know (when he will return). We’ve been trying to get him back for a few weeks” Moyes told the club’s official website.
“But he is not ready yet. It’s his groin. It’s a sore groin injury and nothing desperately serious.”
The troubles keep mounting for Moyes with Wayne Rooney also out through suspension following his yellow card midweek.
All of which means a rare start together upfront for Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez.
Newcastle meanwhile saw their own recent run of form ended against Swansea midweek.
The Magpies headed to Wales on a run off four successive wins but an impressive display from Jonjo Shelvey, lucky to be on the field after an apparent motion to headbutt Mathieu, saw Newcastle succumb to a 3-0 loss.
Manager Alan Pardew could shuffle his pack somewhat for the trip to Manchester with Gabriel Obertan and Sammy Ameobi hoping to feature while Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse and Davide Santon are rated as doubts ahead of the clash.
