Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson misses the services of Tom Cleverley, who is expected to be sidelined until Christmas. Darron Gibson (ankle) and Michael Owen (thigh) are also out for the coming fixture, while Anderson is unavailable until February with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck are slight doubts for the encounter at Old Trafford but either could start alongside Javier Hernandez.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew will have to make do without Sylvain Marveaux, who is out with a groin injury. Michael Williamson (ankle) joins the Frenchman in the treatment room. Nile Ranger and James Tavernier are also unavailable, as the duo have gone out on loan to Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday respectively.

Leon Best, Gabriel Obertan and Cheick Tiote are all doubts for this game.

  • Manchester United is undefeated in its last 17 matches against Newcastle United in the Premier League.
  • Barring Manchester City (42), the Red Devils have scored the most goals in the top-flight, with 29.
  • But in the club's last five matches in the league, Sir Alex Ferguson's men have scored only one goal in each game. This includes the draw with Liverpool and the loss to City.
  • Newcastle United has never beaten this opponent at Old Trafford in Premier League history.
  • But the team is well positioned to rewrite history books, since it is currently placed fourth in the standings. Moreover, the team has lost to only one team in the top flight this season, which came in the form of a 3-1 defeat at Eastlands in the last round of games.
  • Alan Pardew's men may have conceded three goals in their last league clash, but they still remain a miserly defense. Along with Liverpool and Manchester City, the club has conceded the joint fewest number of goals so far (11).
