Man Utd take on Newcastle on Saturday 22nd August, 2015, with kickoff at 12:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.

Both of these teams mourn a long-gone legendary manager, but for the Newcastle boss Steve McLaren today will be particularly poignant. Formerly assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson, the one-time England boss was long tipped to take over if the great man ever retired but has not had the chance so far. Today he’ll want a win, if for no other reason than to show the Red Devils what they missed.

Manchester United know that Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones and David de Gea will not feature today for various reasons, and the club still seems a little confused as to what they should do overall about the fate of the latter.
