MetiNews.Com - Newcastle welcome Manchester United to St James' Park this evening - here is how the Toon Army would like the Magpies to line up
Breaking News ! Newcastle United fans would like to see Steve Bruce make three changes for the Magpies' Premier League clash with Manchester United this evening. The Magpies can move into the Champions League places with a win over the Red Devils at St James' Park and will look to build on what has been a solid start to the season against their disjointed opponents. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were thrashed 6-1 by Tottenham Hotspur last time out and the Norwegian is already under pressure after a difficult start to the season. Newcastle, on the other hand, ran out 3-1 winners over Burnley a fortnight ago and, despite some criticism over performances, have lost just once in seven games so far this term.
