Newcastle vs Manchester United: Premier League TV and online live streaming

The Red Devils are aiming to re-establish a seven-point lead over Tottenham in second place, but Jose Mourinho says it won't be easy

Manchester United will attempt to strengthen their hold on second place when they take on Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho's side are currently four points clear of third-place Tottenham with a game in hand, so a win will see them extend the gap once more.

Newcastle, on the other hand, are languishing at the other end of the table and Rafa Benitez's men are desperately seeking points in order to avoid being sucked into a relegation battle.

Manchester United and Newcastle face off at St James' Park today with very different ambitions at opposite ends of the Premier League table.

Jose Mourinho has all but admitted the title race is over with Manchester City dominating so far this season, and United will realistically have to win every game if they are to stand any chance of catching City.

However, Newcastle will likely provide a tough test today as the Magpies fight for Premier League survival with only goal difference separating them from the relegation zone.

Rafa Benitez's side sit a point above the drop zone ahead of the weekend, and must pick up points to avoid being the fall guys in what could be one of the tightest relegation dogfights in years.

Team News

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to first-team training two days ago, but the United striker will not be ready for Sunday.

The 36-year-old was given a new one-year deal after recovering impressively from a serious knee injury sustained in April, but managed only seven appearances before suffering a complaint with the same knee.

Ibrahimovic is back in training having last featured on Boxing Day, but will continue to be on the sidelines this weekend - as will Eric Bailly (ankle), Daley Blind (ankle ligaments) and Marouane Fellaini (knee).

Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Pereira, Valencia, Darmian, Jones, Lindelof, Smalling, Rojo, Shaw, Young, Matic, Carrick, McTominay, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Mata, Martial, Rashford, Sanchez, Lukaku.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez will make a late decision on striker Islam Slimani.

The loan signing from Leicester arrived with a thigh injury and although he is training, he remains a doubt for the game.

Defender Ciaran Clark (knee) and midfielder Mohamed Diame (knock) are fit, but full-back Jesus Gamez (ankle) is not yet ready to return.

Provisional squad: Darlow, Dubravka, Elliot, Yedlin, Manquillo, Dummett, Haidara, Lascelles, Clark, Mbemba, Merino, Hayden, Shelvey, Ritchie, Atsu, Murphy, Diame, Kenedy, Perez, Slimani, Joselu, Gayle.

Predicted line-ups
Newcastle starting XI: Darlow, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Diame, Shelvey, Kenedy, Perez, Gayle

Man Utd starting XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Shaw; Matic, Pogba; Mata, Lingard, Sanchez, Lukaku

Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United
