Sport Mukiele threatens to fail in Manchester
Newcastle – Manchester United: How to watch, start time, prediction, odds
Newcastle is also 2-1-1 against Manchester United in their last four league meetings at St. James' Park, but surely the Red Devils will be ready to rebound.The Magpies are off to a 2-1-1 start after beating West Ham and Burnley and drawing Tottenham, while the Red Devils’ lone points through three Premier League matches came in a win over Brighton.
While things are looking pretty good for two other problem children, RB Leipzig in Manchester will probably have to do without Nordi Mukiele.
RB Leipzig can fall back on Kevin Kampl in the Champions League group game at Manchester United on Wednesday. The midfielder, who complained about muscular problems in the thigh after the 2-1 win against Hertha BSC on Saturday, completed the training session on Monday without any complaints.

Tyler Adams is also on the mend, who missed the game against Hertha due to an inner ligament irritation in his knee. The American should definitely make the trip to Manchester on Tuesday and undergo a stress test in the final training session.
In contrast, the game at Old Trafford will probably come too early for Nordi Mukiele. The French defense all-rounder had been substituted for Hertha due to a thigh injury. The result of the scheduled MRI examination was still pending on Monday.
In any case, coach Julian Nagelsmann has to do without the long-term injuries Konrad Laimer and Lukas Klostermann, and Amadou Haidara, who tested positive for COVID-19, is still in quarantine up to and including Thursday.
Solskjaer's defence is shaky as future hangs in the balance .
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have dismissed Roy Keane's suggestion this week that the players would cost him his job but the manner of Wednesday's Champions League defeat supported the former United great's claim. The Champions League had prior to Wednesday provided respite for Solskjaer from a desperate start to the Premier League campaign. United are languishing in 15th spot after making their worst start to a league campaign in 48 years and face a tricky trip to Everton on Saturday.
