look to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat against in the FA Cup with victory over Newcastle at St James Park.

Victory tonight would take closer to the title but it won’t be easy as Newcastle will put up a fight and United will have to show that Saturday’s defeat hasn’t aversely affected us.

has made changes to Saturday’s team with the first notably exclusion being who misses out following his red card. That leaves a space for to step in and he is joined by who returns having served his 2 game ban following swearing on camera at Upton Park. The striker will be rearing to contribute to United’s title push with goals against a side who he seems to love scoring against.

There is also a return for who missed Saturday’s game.

Starting XI:¬†Van Der Sar; O’Shea, Vidic, Smalling, Evra; Nani, Carrick, Anderson, Giggs; Rooney, Hernandez

Subs: Kuszczak, Owen, Park, Fabio, J. Evans, Valencia, Gibson
