Its going to be a special occasion at Old Trafford one Saturday in a traditional 3pm kick-off with as the world awaits the return of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Steve Bruce returns to Old Trafford with his Newcastle team and will no doubt feel an element of nostalgia. He played for the Red Devils in the match dubbed 'Return of the King' in 1995 as Eric Cantona, another legend to wear the no.7, played his first match after serving a nine-month ban.
And its the Frenchman in Bruce camp who is looking to spoil Ronaldo's returning party this weekend. Allan Saint-Maximin is without doubt Newcastle's biggest threat going forward and he isn't going into the game full of fear.
"Even if it’s Man Utd it’s not like they’re invincible." Said the 24-year-old: "Before Ronaldo signed, they had a great team, and they win games. So, for sure, with Cristiano Ronaldo now, they look much better but we have to stay focussed."
Without a win in their opening three games, Saint- Maximin's side will be massive underdogs but that hasn't tainted his belief that they can come away with a result.
"I will try to do my best because I’m sure the world will watch this game because of Ronaldo." He told NUTV: "But I know my quality. I know what I can do on the pitch, and I know it’ll be a really hard game. We need the win to start the season. And even if we play against Man Utd, we know if every player gives the best they can give, we can win this game so let’s do it."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will decide whether to put Ronaldo in from the start on Saturday and you would think he will, with all the fanfare that surrounds the occasion.
