Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have made a good start to the campaign, collecting seven points from their opening three matches.

First Goalscorer: Cristiano Ronaldo (9/4)

Having scored twice for Portugal last week, Ronaldo became the highest goalscorer in the history of international football and we're backing him to continue that form at Old Trafford.

As mentioned, the Newcastle defence have leaked eight goals in their first three matches and Ronaldo should be able to manipulate that form, too.

Headed Shot On Target: Cristiano Ronaldo (6/4)

As you might expect of a man who has scored a staggering 785 goals for clubs and country, Ronaldo can find the net in many different ways - especially with his head.

At the ripe age of 36, he still has an astonishing leap, which was shown in Portugal’s recent match against the Republic of Ireland as he scored two late headers to seal a 2-1 victory.

Manchester United team news

Ronaldo has trained alongside his new teammates this week, and the Portuguese phenomenon is expected to go straight into the starting line-up on Saturday afternoon as a centre forward.

Jadon Sancho has recovered from the problem that forced him to pull out of the England squad, and the summer arrival could join Ronaldo, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes as part of a front four.


Newcastle United team news

Callum Wilson picked up a thigh problem in the draw with Southampton before the international break and is set to miss out, meaning that Joelinton could feature alongside Allan Saint-Maximin as part of a front two.

Martin Dubravka, Jonjo Shelvey, Ryan Fraser, Karl Darlow and Elliott Anderson will also be unavailable through injury, but Isaac Hayden and Paul Dummett have a chance of being involved.
