There are doubts surrounding the fitness of Scott McTominay after he was withdrawn through injury on Thursday night, while Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani, who both missed the trip to Turin, could still be absent this weekend. The boss rotated in the Europa League and with a heavy fixture schedule coming up, could do likewise at Old Trafford, although Paul Pogba and Phil Jones are definitely ruled out through injury.
Newcastle, meanwhile, will be without top scorer Callum Wilson, as well as defenders Fabian Schar and Javier Manquillo after they all picked up injuries in theMagpies’ recent 3-2 win over Southampton. Federico Fernandez is also out, although Bruce will be able to call on the services of Jeff Hendrick again after he returns from serving a suspension last time out against Chelsea.
