Newcastle United v Manchester United Preview

Manager Jose Mourinho is working hard to sort his midfield puzzle after Michael Carrick's reported retirement at the end of this season and the delay in Marouane Fellaini's contract extension.

The reverse fixture, played back in November at Old Trafford, saw Manchester United cruise to a 4-1 win, with the returning Paul Pogba on song.

"The natural effect of it is that he will have his contract and he will be a United player for years".

Having his sort of presence in the final third is what Benitez has been searching for, although he is not promising that Newcastle will start defensively against Manchester United - like they did against Manchester City at St James' on Boxing Day.

"I'm not going from the Bad One to the Perfect One, no way, but I try, I make an effort and I'm happy with the way things are going". Rafa Benitez has despite the well documented lack of support from the board, done a respectable job of keeping Newcastle United above the drop zone and it is vital that they stay in the top flight to not lose momentum again. The 29-year-old forward returned to training this week and looks likely to make his debut on Sunday. Benitez knows how to get points. When you're playing for the Serie A leaders it's only logical that important teams will ask for updates: for example the length of the contract.

A return to the Champions League came at a price for Manchester United as a related increase in player wages crimped core quarterly earnings for the Premier League soccer club. "I never had one single problem with him regarding his professionalism because he really is a very good trainer, one of the guys who likes to train, enjoys to train".

Manchester United travel to St. James' Park on Sunday to take on struggling Newcastle.

Newcastle have drawn their last 3 home matches (Premier League). United lost 2-0 to Tottenham in their last away game, but we expect them to put a much better display against the Magpies. We scored a goal and we were quite well organised, and then we made a couple of mistakes and we conceded two goals.
