Newcastle will head to Old Trafford on Boxing Day level on points with Manchester United.

His side shockingly lost to Watford at Vicarage Road, with the Premier League’s bottom side picking up just their second win of the season.

Last time Newcastle and Manchester United met, it was Steve Bruce’s side who secured all three points courtesy of a dream debut from Matty Longstaff.
