Alex Telles is in line for a Manchester United debut as they face Newcastle United in their first game after the international break.

The two sides meet in the Premier League after contrasting results last time out, with the Magpies beating Burnley in comprehensive fashion.

Man United, on the other hand, were embarrassed 6-1 at home by Tottenham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will expect a big reaction from his players.

He has a decision to make in attack, though, as United are without new signing Edinson Cavani and the suspended Anthony Martial.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

Newcastle are without Matt Ritchie, Martin Dubravka and Dwight Gayle still. Miguel Almiron is fit despite a knock on international duty. Jamaal Lascelles and Ciaran Clark are edging closer but may need more group training sessions before considered for action.

United will be without new striker signing Edinson Cavani, who is self-isolating after his arrival. Anthony Martial is suspended and Phil Jones is a long-term absentee.
