The “Wrong One – Moyes out” plane stunt has now being consigned to the past as United manager David Moyes saw his troops follow up a 4-1 win over Aston Villa with a hugely credible 1-1 draw at home to Bayern Munich in the quarter-final of the Champions league.
With the stress lifted for now Moyes will focus his effort on avenging the 1-0 defeat suffered by his side in December. The Red Devils have won three of their last five games to sit comfortably in 7th, 8 points ahead of Southampton and just two points behind Spurs.
Newcastle meanwhile have struggled in recent weeks, winning just three of their last 10 games.
The January departure of Yohan Cabaye to PSG has left a huge void in the middle of the park with injuries to Tim Krul, Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy testing an already thin squad.
The Magpies were thrashed 4-0 last time out against Southampton away and in the build up to the game against United Alan Pardew admitted that his side were limping to the line.
“The mid-season was really strong for us and the injuries to Loic and the transfer of Cabaye have impacted on our quality, there’s no doubt about that,” said Pardew.
“We are grinding towards the end unfortunately, and that’s not what we want. We want to be a lot more easy on the eye, and lot more fluent in what we are doing than we are.
“But we have become a very functional team now, and that’s what has really got to get us through until such time as Loic is back and Mathieu is back and Tim is back.”
In addition to being without the aforementioned trio Pardew, who will be in the stands as he serves a touchline ban, will also be without Moussa Sissoko.
United meanwhile will welcome back Patrice Evra after he missed the clash with Bayern through suspension however Ryan Giggs (groin) and Rafael da Silva (hamstring) are rated as doubtful.
Definitely out is Robin van Persie (knee) with Jonny Evans (calf) and Chris Smalling (hamstring) closing in on returns to the squad.
