UK Why Mason Greenwood was not in the Manchester United squad vs Newcastle last minute news
MetiNews.Com - Man United beat Newcastle 4-1 with two changes to their attack on a day Mason Greenwood was expected to start through the middle.
Breaking News ! Mason Greenwood was unfit to travel with the Manchester United squad for their win at Newcastle. Greenwood, 19, was the glaring omission in the travelling party and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to recall Daniel James as Anthony Martial was suspended and Edinson Cavani is still in quarantine. James, 22, returned to a Premier League XI for the first time since he was substituted at half-time in United's opening defeat to Crystal Palace and started in his preferred role on the left flank. United had 28 attempts at goal in their 4-1 triumph at St James' Park and Solskjaer was pleased with how James combined with Juan Mata, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford. "Mason wasn't fit to play, so we had to leave him out," Solskjaer said.

"Attacking-wise, I thought Dan with the speed would create problems for teams and Juan and Bruno are intelligent and create chances for us and we could have scored a few more. "It’s not just about attackers though, it’s about the team working for each other pressing from the front. Dan has incredible speed on the counter and today he showed more positivity, he trusted himself. We work with all the players to express themselves and show what they're good at.
