Man United news
Man United travel to St. James Park hoping they can bounce back from their 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur before the international break.
Solskjaer’s side have started poorly, losing two of their first three games and conceding 11 goals. United lie in 16th place in the league, having played a game fewer than most sides.
United made a flurry of signings on deadline day but striker Edinson Cavani is unavailable due to quarantine rules. However, left-back Alex Telles could make his United debut. Anthony Martial is suspended for three games for striking Erik Lamela.
🗣️ “We look forward to integrating the new signings,” says Ole.
