Newcastle United v Manchester United set to get go ahead as training ground reopens

1 month ago

Manchester United are one of the clubs who successfully appealed to the Premier League to have matches postponed.

With Covid cases in the squad, Manchester United allowed to postpone the match at Brentford and home game against Brighton.

Their last game was the fortunate 1-0 away win at Norwich back on Saturday 11 December.

With the game at St James Park only six days away, there had been concerns about that match going ahead.

However, today the Manchester United training ground has reopened for first team players, with the club having a staggered return of the members of their squad.

As well as manager Ralf Rangnick turning up for work today, amongst the players seen going into the training ground were Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Mason Greenwood, Luke Shaw, David De Gea, Fred, Scott McTominay, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata.

With the Newcastle United match now looking likely to go ahead on Monday (27 December) with an 8pm kick-off, it will be the first Manchester United game in 16 days.

Since Manchester United last played, Newcastle United have had three games, their tough schedule seeing a lot of poor refereeing and bad defending compounding the difficult nature of their matches, with three defeats and 11 goals conceded, only one scored.
