AFTERNOON

13:05: Welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho makes the daunting trip to Newcastle on a wet and windy Sunday afternoon as Manchester United seek to cement their top-four status.

“Daunting?” I hear you saying in a perplexed manner?

“Yes,” I respond in an overly-theatrical nature whilst stroking my beard.

Sorry I don’t know why this introduction has developed into a budget screen play…

Anyway, for a man that has enjoyed plenty of success on English soil, including winning three Premier League titles, it is somewhat surprising that the Portuguese has failed to win in his six top-flight visits to St James’ Park. He’ll be hoping to change that in emphatic fashion.

Should be a good ‘un!

NEWCASTLE vs MANCHESTER UNITED – PREVIEW

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez will make a late decision on Islam Slimani (thigh) with the on-loan striker a doubt. Defender Ciaran Clark (knee) and midfielder Mohamed Diame (knock) are fit, but full-back Jesus Gamez (ankle) is not yet ready to return.

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic (knee) will not be ready. Eric Bailly (ankle), Daley Blind (ankle ligaments) and Marouane Fellaini (knee) will also remain on the sidelines.
