Toon in training: Newcastle prepare for Old Trafford test
Newcastle United will look to improve their rotten recent record at Old Trafford on Sunday as the Magpies' 1,000th Premier League game comes against Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo on Saturday (kick-off 3pm BST).
Steve Bruce will update supporters on the fitness of Callum Wilson - who came off with a thigh problem after scoring against Southampton before the international break - when he speaks to the media on Friday, while Ryan Fraser picked up a knock while training with Scotland ahead of their World Cup qualifier in Austria.
Jonjo Shelvey is still sidelined with a calf problem but Karl Darlow is closing in on a return to contention after recovering from Covid-19 while teenager Elliot Anderson has been back in training in recent days, with a persistent hip problem now hopefully behind him, and Isaac Hayden will be pushing for a starting berth after missing out against Southampton.
Newcastle have only won once at Manchester United since 1972, but Bruce's side will be determined to improve that record against Cristiano Ronaldo and his new team-mates - and pick up their first three points of the season.
