A win at St.James Park will see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer becoming the first Manchester United manager since Sir Matt Busby to win his first 4 matches. The Norwegian has seen a complete turn of fortunes for the Red Devils with 3 consecutive victories and scoring a combined total of 12 goals.

A trip to the Tyneside is sure to provide a greater challenge to the Norwegian than his previous matches. Newcastle United are winless in their last 3 matches but the fortunes of Rafael Benitez have changed in the last two months after a very poor start to their season.

Rafel Benitez will be hoping to get a victory over his old foes Manchester United and end their mini-resurgence.
